This sweet treat at Epcot definitely lived up to the hype

Last weekend, the boyfriend and I devoted an entire day to exploring Epcot, where drinking around the world and other fun shenanigans ensued. It was a gorgeous day to be out at one of the parks, and we took full advantage of it.

We started in Mexico, bypassed all of the margarita stands, and made a beeline for Norway. I had heard amaaaaaazing things about the school bread sold at the Kringla Bakeri Og Cafe. The line was long, and I impatiently wondered if this supposedly delicious dessert was worth the wait.

As we inched closer to the doorway to the little cafe, I saw a lovely little mound of school breads stacked up in the display case. I could not wait to bite into one. It was finally our turn and I excitedly placed my order for one. Once this delicious looking treat was in hand, we grabbed a seat in the outside seating area of the cafe and snacking commenced.

School bread doesn’t look like anything special from the outside. It is basically a cross between a large dinner type roll and a cinnamon roll- not a heavy sort of bread at all. It is covered in a thin layer of icing topped with shaved coconut and inside is a cool and creamy vanilla custard/pudding. The custard is abundant and is the tastiest part.

This snack is not overly sweet like many Disney treats, and is a great alternative to the usual Disney cupcake. You will definitely need to use a fork to eat much of this treat as the custard oozes out onto your plate (which I think is a great thing)!

Also, the price is right, it came out to about $3.00 and is a decent size for sharing. Not bad for something sweet at Disney.

I see now why this treat is a beloved favorite of many. I enjoyed every bite of it, and wanted another one to eat later in the day. Perhaps I should try to replicate the recipe so that I can have them more often.

Have you tried Norway’s School Bread? What did you think of it?
