Enjoying Kakigori in Japan - Disney's Epcot Center

I love almost anything that has to do with Japan; I love the movies, culture, fashion, and the food. I love travel vlogs that people film in the Japan Disney Parks and I am just about destined to visit one in the next few years. For now, I'll just have to allow the Japan Pavilion in Epcot to tide me over.

Before I left for this last trip, I spent a while searching for the best foods to try around the countries. A desert called kakigori came up over and over in other people's favorites, and I was intrigued. I had never heard of kakigori before, but many described it as a yummy and sweet shaved ice that has syrup poured over the top. Some people opt for sweet milk on top to also add a little extra flavor. I included kakigori in my bucket list for this list, and before I knew it, we were in the parks, and passing the stand that sells kakigori.


The stand is between the American Experience and Japan Pavilion, selling drinks along with kakigori. I picked up a strawberry flavored kakigori but decided against the sweet milk for the time being. This dessert was so refreshing and cool in the sun, but you need to eat it quickly or it will melt down quickly. I think that this would be a perfect treat for everyone, including picky kids, because of how candy sweet it is. One kakigori is plenty for a few people to share and cool off with as well. I paid four dollars and some change which was a bargain for most treats in Disney, especially since a few people can share. I shared mine with my mother while we checked out the koi ponds and did some people watching on a bench. It was a perfectly refreshing treat on a beautiful day in Epcot!

Have you ever tried treats from around the world in Epcot? What's your favorite?
