We’ve taken with you us all day to the Disney Resorts to find Fourth of July treats all over Disney World!
Although this treat might be last of the day, it’s definitely not least. The Red White and Blueberry Trifle is layered with berry compote, vanilla cake, shortbread crumble, cherry mousse, whipped cream, and sprinkles.
We’re gonna be honest here — looks can be deceiving. We did NOT think much of this trifle when we first saw it and almost walked right past it! Disney is a big fan of verrines (AKA trifles) and we frequently see them appearing in their home base of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. While this Beach Club dessert is called a “trifle,” it’s much more similar to a verrine. But, we’re not complaining!
The Red White and Blueberry Trifle has a bit of a crunch from the shortbread crumbles, even though the rest of the treat is nice and smooth. Although a lot of the berry, cherry, and whipped cream flavors are sweet, there’s a hint of tartness from some of the lemon juice mixed into the trifle.
If you’re craving a more traditional treat, the Beach Club Resort also has a Fourth of July Cupcake and a Welcome Back Funfetti Cupcake too! However, the Welcome Back Cupcake sold out pretty quickly, so we’ll have to check back to give you a look and review.
While our hearts will belong to the patriotic Peanut Butter Pie that we had today (we just can’t get enough of it), we were surprised to find that the Red White and Blueberry Trifle happened to be our other favorite Fourth of July treat for only $5! It’s one of the least aggressively-sweet treats we tried. The balance of citrus, berry, and sweet flavors were refreshing compared to the other chocolate or sugary buttercream flavors we’ve had all day long. On that festive note, we wish you a Happy Fourth of July however you spend it!
