Disney is filled with delicious treats, including the iconic Dole Whip, churros, Mickey ice cream bars, popcorn, and more. But, sometimes Disney debuts some, well, interesting, food items. Now, one Disney Springs location — Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew — is bringing Guests a donut made of mashed purple yams!
When discussing weird food items from the parks, let’s start over in Downtown Disney at Disneyland in California. Recently, Guests were surprised with a panko-crusted pickle hot dog from the Blue Ribbon Corn Dog Cart. And, at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World in Florida, Everglazed Donuts debuted a grilled cheese donut which left many Guests feeling intrigued.
Now, Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew is bringing Guests at Disney Springs yet another interesting donut — This time made with…mashed purple yams?!
Why this may sound interesting to you, the donut is actually made of ube — a purple yam originally from the Philippines. Because ube is sweeter than an orange sweet potato, it is used a lot in Filipino cuisine including when making ube ice cream, ube pie, and ube icing!
Everglazed took to Instagram to share a photo of the Purple Glazed Ube Donut, which is made with mashed purple yams (also know as ube), along with the caption:
Made from mashed purple yams, our 𝙋𝙪𝙧𝙥𝙡𝙚 𝙂𝙡𝙖𝙯𝙚𝙙 𝙐𝙗𝙚 𝘿𝙤𝙣𝙪𝙩 is the sweet treat Mother Nature has been searching for! 💜
⏱ Open Daily @ 9a
Although Everglazed posted to Instagram on Earth Day, the purple glazed ube donut is on the everyday menu. So, even if you plan to visit Disney Springs in the coming weeks, you should be able to get your hands on this intriguing donut (so long as they are not sold out on that given day).
In regards to what this donut consists of, there is not much information aside from the fact that it is made from mashed purple yams. It looks to have a sweet buttercream or cream cheese icing on top, as well as black sugar sprinkled on the glaze.
If you want to try this one-of-a-kind donut, be sure to head on over to Everglazed Donuts in Disney Springs!
