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…
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!
