Christmas gifts for theme park fans: Funnel cake starter kit

Published: November 16, 2009 at 1:42 PM

Every now and then, between now and Christmas, I'll be posting links to cool stuff I see on the Web that might be of interest to theme park fans.

Hey, if you're like me, and you're someone who goes completely blank when trying to devise a holiday shopping list, maybe these links will help.

And I'll try to keep the prices reasonable. I mean, who wouldn't love a first-class ticket to Tokyo and a week at Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea? Ain't gonna happen for me, though. :-(

First up: The Funnel Cake Starter Kit: A handy pitcher with built-in funnel, a fry ring and batter mix. Just supply your own skillet and oil, and you're good to go.

Funnel cake
Okay, this is a professionally-made funnel cake. But ya gotta have goals in life.

Now you can keep in "theme park shape" during those long winter months when you might otherwise eat a vegetable or something.

They are sold at Bed Bath and Beyond, as well, with extra mixes. I work there, so I know :)

I agree!

Disney also makes their own kit, but I am not sure about the other parks.

Having owned one of these, I must say two important things:
One - Tastes great!
Two - Really messy!

I gained two pounds looking at the photo.
I gained another pound reading about it and another pound just for considering a purchase.
What hope have I got if I actually get one ?
