Boysenberry Icee, Knott’s Berry Farm
You can’t go to Knott’s Berry Farm and not try something with boysenberry. One of the best ways to enjoy the fruit and cool off from the summer sun is this frosty treat.
Granny’s Apple Fries, Legoland Florida and California
A park original, these Granny Smith apple fries are dusted with cinnamon and sugar and come with a whipped cream dipping sauce.
Dole Whip, Magic Kingdom and Disneyland
This light, refreshing treat is really just pineapple soft-serve, and it’s OK for park goers with a dairy allergy. Up the ante with a Dole Whip Float, a cup of pineapple juice topped with the frothy frozen goodness.
Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, Coney Island
What began as a nickel hot dog stand in 1916 is now a household name, thanks to the famous hotdog eating contest. But the original stand is still in business, and visiting this institution should be on every Coney Island bucket list.
Butterbeer, Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Frozen, iced and now hot. However you take it, ordering a mug of this creamy, sugary butterscotch overload will take you into the pages of J.K. Rowling’s wizard universe.
Fresh-Baked Cinnamon Bread, Dollywood
You’ll smell the mouthwatering aroma as soon as you walk into the park. Find this park staple at The Grist Mill, the first fully operating grist mill built in the state of Tennessee in more than 100 years.
Cheese on a Stick, Cedar Point
This signature snack is less like a mozzarella stick and more like a giant corn dog with a hunk of molten cheese in the middle. Don’t think about the calories on this one.
Ginger Molasses Cookies, Silver Dollar City
These snaps have become a fan favorite during the holiday season. Find them in the park at Eva & Delilah’s Bakery.
Smoked Turkey Leg, Magic Kingdom and Disneyland
One of the most iconic Disney bites, this Renaissance-type snack is giant, and you can find it at multiple snack carts and quick service spots throughout the park.
Mickey Waffle, Walt Disney World and Disneyland
There is no Disney food more Instagrammable than a Mickey Mouse waffle. And there’s nothing like that first breakfast in the park that says it’s vacation time.
