This year’s Epcot Food & Wine Festival features Odyssey’s Brew-Wing. It features the food creations of puppeteer Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his loyal assistant Baker. Together, the duo created Disney’s first pickle milkshake.

The milkshake is served in a souvenir glass that looks like a mason jar, and it retails for $5.75. The drink itself is a light green color, similar to a Shamrock Shake. The shake is topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles made to look like the herbs in a jar of dill pickle. Instead of a cherry on top, the milkshake pickle gets a sprig of fresh dill as a garnish.

Pickle Milkshake Review

@disneyeats, the official Instagram account for Disney’s Magical Rolls, posted a video of the Pickle Milkshake to mixed reviews. Some have responded, “I’ll definitely try it,” while others feel Disney is pushing the A-list beta a little so far.

Some comments wondered if this was April Fool’s Day while others pointed out that no one in the Disney Eats reel actually tasted a pickled milkshake.

A media day preview on July 26 also brought mixed reviews. Almost everyone agreed that the milkshake starts to taste like a classic vanilla shake. But what follows are ingredients of dill with a little vinegar. Some loved it and said they would not hesitate to get another. One tester noted that she’s not a fan of pickles, but found the shake to be surprisingly light and flavorful. Some even considered it refreshing in the Florida summer heat.

Although Pickle Milkshake isn’t likely to go down like the next Dole Whip, most reviews suggest it’s worth trying during the Food & Wine Festival. The event is happening now through November 18th, so book your tickets!
