‘Tis the season of twinkly lights and delicious food! And this year, you can find both at Canada’s Wonderland’s Winterfest. The event runs from November 17 to January 6, with tickets retailing for $30. In addition to offering live shows, holiday entertainment and ice skating for the event, the theme park also released a special holiday themed menu. It includes holiday twists on park classics like funnel cakes and corn dogs, along with some new creative menu items, and we got to try them all. Read on to find out which items were our top picks!
Carved Turkey Sandwich
Would it really be a carnival menu without a wacky sandwich? The Carved Turkey Sandwich takes getting into the holiday spirit to a whole new level. While the green bun might take a second to get used to, the turkey slices are seasoned to perfection. If you’re feeling adventurous you should definitely try this sandwich.
The holidays were made for cookie lovers. Whether you’re a fan of sugar cookies, gingerbread, or even deep-fried Oreos, there is something for everyone at Winterfest this year. We especially loved the snowman cookie, which was almost too cute to eat. Sweet and buttery, this cookie is a must-try.
Turkey Ball Dinner
Despite its unconventional appearance, the Turkey Ball Dinner was downright delightful! It comes stuffed with turkey and veggies, combining the best parts of a classic holiday dinner in a breaded ball. This item also comes with a side of creamy mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce that complements the turkey perfectly.
Winterfest has several festive cakes on the menu this year, and we especially loved the Holiday Cake. Best served with a tall glass of milk, it’s mixed with red, green and white sprinkles. This fudge-like cake was definitely on the sweeter side, but we still really enjoyed it.
Festive Funnel Cakes
No trip to Wonderland is complete without funnel cake, and the festive flavours they have on offer do not disappoint. The Snowflake Funnel Cake was our standout favourite. The funnel cake is topped with the standard ice cream and powdered sugar, but in the spirit of the holidays it also comes with winter themed sprinkles, marshmallows and a yummy gingerbread cookie. For anyone skeptical about eating ice cream in the winter, we guarantee it’s worth it in this case!
Without a doubt, the most important item to buy at Winterfest is the hot chocolate. Keep warm while you enjoy the lights, rides and food as you sip on a warm mug of delicious hot chocolate. We highly recommend buying the souvenir mug from the Countdown to Christmas stand as soon as you enter the park so you can take full advantage of the free refills during your visit.
