Published: March 20, 2012 at 9:09 AMWelcome back little Orange Bird :-) I've missed you!! Glad to hear that the citrus swirls can be found again. They were my favorite Disney treat as a kid -- way better than the Mickey ears on a stick! Wish I could go to WDW now, I'd buy two :-)
Published: March 20, 2012 at 9:12 AMNot being as much of a Disney aficionado as many here, I had no familiarity with the Citrus Swirl. That sounds verrrry appealing and interesting to me. Would you happen to know if they use fresh-squeezed OJ? I wouldn't take that as a given..keeping their costs down is often paramount, and even in California/Florida, fresh-squeezed is more expensive. I'll pay extra for it here when I hit a Wegmans..hard to find fresh squeezed OJ in NJ no matter the time of year!
Published: March 20, 2012 at 9:25 AMI love the Citrus swirl. It's much better than the Dole Whip. Hope it's still there when we go in DEC.
Published: March 20, 2012 at 10:06 AMInterestingly enough, even my local park, Worlds of Fun, is opening a waffle sandwich place this season. I am sure their offerings will be lousy and overpriced, but hey, at least they try. Sort of.
Published: March 20, 2012 at 1:02 PMI never knew this existed. Being a Dole Whip fan, I never ventured over there. I'm trying this new treat this weekend!
Published: March 20, 2012 at 3:39 PMA chicken and waffle sandwich? Never heard of it. Must not have migrated north to Ohio yet.
Published: March 20, 2012 at 4:22 PMThere should be a Roscoe's at DCA! That's a staple of SoCal.
I think I've seen that orange bird before...Either way, it sounds like a cool alternative to the popular dole whip.
Published: March 20, 2012 at 5:18 PM^^^Really? Never heard of Roscoe's. And I've lived in SoCal for 52 years.
Published: March 20, 2012 at 6:49 PMHey Mark,
Roscoe's has a few locations in the LA area, but it's very popular. They are known for their chicken & waffles.
It's listed in various tourist guides (like Pinks). It's popular with celebs & the President even ate there on one of his most recent visits.
I didn't know about the Pasedena location that Robert was talking about, but I think it would be cool to have at DCA!
Published: March 21, 2012 at 7:29 AMI was exiting HOP recently and thought I saw waffles in the window. The group I was with were hot footin' it to Main Street for the MSEP, so I didn't have time to investigate but I will soon.
I've been hoping Chic-Fil-A would jump on the Chicken and Waffles idea and offer a breakfast sandwich with mini waffles aound their amazing chicken. McDonald's has that freakey McGriddles thing (actualy rather tasty, it just looks strange) so this seems like low hanging fruit.
Published: March 21, 2012 at 8:56 AMI've gotten on a waffle kick the last year or so...gotta pick some up on my way home tonight..Aunt Jemima 88 cents at Shop-Rite, baby! But I don't believe I've ever seen..much less had..a chicken/waffle sandwich. As I mentioned above regarding the Citrus Twist, this also holds some appeal for me.
Published: March 22, 2012 at 11:32 AMI ate the ham, prosciutto and swiss waffle for lunch in October. I eat chicken this or that everywhere else so I wanted a change. It was quite good and a nice change. The size was large enough for 2 to share and both be satisfied. The only problem I had was the disorganized ordering and pick-up system. The window area is small and they get quite a back-up in orders and you really need to stay close to hear your number being called out.
