The next time you go to Universal Studios and just want a quick bite or something sweet to eat, seek out these can’t miss Universal Orlando snacks. These favorites can be found all around the resort, and they’re not just amazing, they are part of the whole experience.

Frozen Butterbeer

It isn’t the Wizarding World of Harry Potter unless you have indulged in their most iconic snack. Butterbeer is so pervasive in these lands that you can have the flavor in many forms from  its traditional bubbly concoction to more stackable fudge.

The best way to enjoy this frosty treat is as a frozen slushy. You can find Frozen Butterbeer in Diagon Alley at the Fountain of Fair Fortune. It can also be found in Hogsmeade at any of the “street” carts throughout the area.

Footlong Corn Dog

How can you not stop and buy a footlong corn dog when you see one? This unwieldy and extremely tasty snack is the best way to indulge in the flavors of hotdog and corn batter.

If your chief complaint about corn dogs is that they are never big enough this is one of those must have Universal Orlando snacks you can’t pass up on. Find it at Moose Juice, Goose Juice on Seuss Landing in Islands of Adventure.

Flaming Moe

Maybe the most snackable place in Universal Orlando besides Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley is Springfield. There are some great iconic snacks here.

Springfield, home of the Simpsons, is home to some of the best snacks at Universal Orlando.

One experience you must add to your list is to drop in on Moe’s Tavern and have one of their Famous Flaming Moe’s. It’s just a lot of fun and a great way to participate in the Simpsons inspired environment. It’s a non alcoholic drink for all ages made with orange soda and dry ice in a specially designed cup.

Toothsome Milkshake

Outside of the parks there are plenty of can’t miss Universal Orlando snacks. One must-do is to visit the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium. This place is a full fledged restaurant, but the main draw here is the chocolate and the absolutely ridiculous milkshakes.

Other places do over-the-top milkshakes, but not like they have at Toothsome. The fun and exciting varieties make for a tough decision, but the Marshmallow Crisp was my favorite. It comes with vanilla ice cream, rice crispies, marshmallow fluff, fresh whipped cream, and Rice Krispies® treat on top.

Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Bar

Finally, Voodoo Doughnut makes a perfect stop for your sweet tooth on Universal City Walk. There are a lot of fun and out there flavors, but for a must have treat that really satisfies, you can’t resist the Bacon Maple Bar.

With a thick layer of maple and a delicious salty strip of bacon, you will be in pillowy doughnutty heaven. Now that I’ve got your mouth watering, what snacks have I missed? I’d love to hear more that I need to add to my list!
