Theme Park Eats: What to Eat at Knott's Berry Farms

If you are a parent, then theme parks, in whatever shape or form, are in your life. I’ve been known to bring our own lunches and snacks to keep the eating healthy for all of us. For the most part, theme park food isn’t much to get excited about. That’s why I was excited when Knott’s Berry Farms invited me and a slew of other bloggers to sample their new menu items at their parks. And when I say sample, I mean stuff my face, because I ate and ate and ate and ATE!

I brought my food companion, Annabell, with me to chow down. I figured I couldn’t over-indulge with my husband glaring at me. Instead, my gal-pal stuffed her face right by my side! Now that is girlfriend-power!

But seriously, I am happy to report that everything was truly delicious.

From genuine barbeque to veggie wraps, gluten-free pizza to ahi tuna, Knott’s Berry Farms served it all to us. I was pleasantly surprised to find healthy foods and vegan-friendly meals (that weren’t salads!) available at the park. Because we all know that vegans like roller coasters, too!!

Knott’s gave us sample sizes, but they encouraged us to go for seconds and thirds. In my haste to escape to Knott’s, I forgot the SD card in my camera. DOH! I did have my iPhone & Instagram, but luckily Knott’s provided these awesome pictures of their beautiful food. And yes, everything looked like this!

Quite frankly, I missed a few samplings as I had no room in the tummy for another bite.

Well, I did have a wee bit of room… for dessert!

This is what I call, Death by Funnel Cake. It’s fully loaded people, with soft serve ice cream, powdered sugar, strawberries, boysenberries and apples, I think. Did I miss anything?

There was also boysenberry pie, fresh fruit and ice cream sandwiches.

Wait a second?! This looks awfully familiar!!!

We were entertained with a fabulous band whose singer joked and sounded just like Larry the Cable Guy. Black Jack Jackson was phenomenal and dazzled us with his card tricks. I still don’t know how he did it…

Reach for the sky!

This was my first time at the park, and I was blown away by all of the cool things the park had to offer: fabulous roller coasters, Snoopy everywhere, a jaw-dropping skateboarding/bike tricking/gymnastics show and a great Old West feel to the park.

I will definitely return to Knott’s Berry Farms.

With my kids AND my appetite!

    Well, just for once I was ahead of you: my daughters loved the place way back when [no times/ages mentioned :) ! ] and asked to go every time we hit LA! Don’t remember there being such wonderful choice in food at the time tho’ And don’t think some of the activities you mention had arrived as yet either :) ! It was very different to Disneyland with its Old West feel . . . lovely memories . . .

    Great food, wish I could visit again sometime! Vacationed in California (1978) and very much enjoyed Knotts Berry Farms.

    Gosh Laura, just realized I’m old!! lol

  4. I was so sorry I had to miss this. Glad to hear how great the food is!

  5. Sounds like fun! We used to live in Florida, so we know all of those theme parts too well! Actually some of the Disney restaurants, particularly at Epcot, can be good. Never been to Knotts Berry Farm – I need to do that sometime. Thanks for a fun read.

  6. Oh my, how do we recreate that funnel cake at home?!

  7. I have been to Disneyland several times while visiting the States but never Knotts Berry Farm and now I wish I had. That steak sandwich looks like quite a handful and as for that dessert…

  8. What a fun day! I think I’m *still* full. Let’s do it again sometime!

  9. I love your post – made me smile with your funny jokes. Heehee. And how funny is the ice cream sandwich is just like yours!!! That was a surprise… Haha! I bet I’d stuff myself too, if I went with you. Great choice to go with girl friends! I’ve never been to Knott’s Berry Farms yet, but will sure to visit with kids one day, maybe when it’s not crowded… Great to hear that food is delicious!
