  • Cotton Candy

    Cotton Candy is one of my all time favorite theme park snacks. I was quite surprised to see none being sold at the Tokyo Disney Resort. Does anyone know why, or did I simply miss it? It seems that popcorn is the premier snack being sold there, but I also see churros and other American treats. Why isn't cotton candy one of them?

    When I was there for the 5th anniversary of TDS there was tons of cotton candy flavored popcorn. The lines were enormous but I don't know if that was for the popcorn or the hideously ugly Marie tub. (Not a fan of Marie at all.) Perhaps there is no actual cotton candy because it is too sticky to eat and the Japanese don't want it on their faces in the sun?

      Cotton candy popcorn? Where was that being sold, as I didn't see it either.

        It was on the bridge from American Waterfront to Mt Promethius. You are probably glad you didn't see it, it did not smell like cotton candy. We ended up walking around the other way just to avoid it.

          In Japan, cotton candy is sold at local and seasonal festivals. While it is a favorite import brought into the country many years ago, many Japanese still consider it a "local treat." I believe that inside the Parks, they try to sell snacks that are not widely available, e.g. multi-flavored popcorn, churros, and salt-flavored ice cream.

            Thanks for the explanation. I still wish they would sell it inside the parks though. There should at least be one cart selling cotton candy since you do still see some Japanese treats being sold inside the parks.

              What kind of Japanese treats?

              But I agree, cotton candy would work well in American Waterfront and World Bazaar.

                They're not exactly treats, but I think I saw sushi and miso soup being sold in a little stand somewhere in American Waterfront. And there was this shrimp bun being sold somewhere there too.

                  Ah yes, these treats are based on Japanese foods. However, the TDR versions are not widely sold elsewhere. Of course, popcorn and ice cream is widely available in Japan, but not the way they are available at TDR. I guess they want to stress the uniqueness of the snack products.

                    I am still very curious about that sea salt ice cream. It sounds icky but I heard you can only taste a hint of salt.

                      The sea salt ice cream was very delicious. It tastes just like vanilla ice cream. There wasn't that much salt flavor in it actually, just enough for you to pick it out.

                        I found it interesting to see the amount of pumkin used in various foods and snacks when I was over for Halloween.Like for example the pumkin and vanilla swirl ice cream that was sold.

                          The sea salt ice cream is absolutely delicious! This coming from someone who hates salt and doesn't even put it on the dinner table.

                            I've never been able to get a straight answer when it involves the Sea Salt Ice Cream thats available at Tokyo Disney Seas, as to if it actually does contain the hint of sea salt that some claim it has,I personally think its just clever marketing!

                              Yes it does contain sea salt. You can request to see a list of ingredients from the Guest Information Center. Sea salt has a different taste than ordinary Japanese table (processed) salt.
