DHS Worms and Dirt Underwhelms

Share This!

We’re always game to try holiday-themed snacks, so we were happy to pick up the Graveyard Worms ‘n’ Dirt on Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Priced at $4.99, or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, this dessert includes a layer of chocolate pudding, a layer of cookies and cream mousse, a layer of crushed cookies (the “dirt”), boba pearls, and a gummy worm. The signage shows this with a white chocolate Mickey “tombstone,” but when we bought it they were out of the them. Though part of the dish was missing, there was no reduction in price.

We found the cookie layer to be wetter than we wanted. There should be a textural contrast with the pudding, but because it had been pre-assembled and refrigerated, it was more pasty than crumbly. Otherwise this tasted about as you would expect it to. However, were confused about what the boba was supposed to represent (rocks?) other than that Disney now requires 23.57% of all dessert items to include boba pearls. This version is not any more special than what you’d find at your average eight-year-old’s October birthday party.
