Best Thing I Ever Ate: L’Artisian des Glaces at Epcot

It’s time for ThemeParkHipster’s Best Thing I Ever Ate series!

Can I say OMG! Where have I been for the past few ThemePark years! Thanks to the wonderful blogger over at Disney Food Blog (and a couple of my friends) for informing me about this wonderful mouthwatering experience at Epcot’s L’Artisian des Glaces. And yes I said experience because it was so much more than an ice-cream treat. The Croque Glace is the type of foodie adventure you have to sit down, be quiet and just relish in the party that’s taking place on your palate.
