Buy two and ask questions later.
Jack-Jack’s Cookie Num Num, one of the many new items at the theme park’s just-opened Pixar Pier, isn’t your run-of-the-mill baked good. Made with brown butter and hearty chocolate chunks, the deep-dish sweet is served warm — a first for Disney Parks — melting the chocolate and gooey doughy center into a delectable treat that rivals nearly every dessert Disneyland Resort has ever sold.
The Anaheim parks have introduced a succession of crazy-trendy treats the past few months — Dole Whip donuts, carrot cake churros and millennial pink macarons among them — but the phenomenon surrounding this freshly baked indulgence isn’t likely to subside any time soon. Pixar Pier guests have been hyping the pastry on Instagram so much that it’s already on track to become one of the most popular Disneyland eats of the year, if not all time.
Large enough to split between two people, you’ll be hard pressed to want to share the $6 dessert once you take a bite. Order two so you won’t have to wait in line a second time, even if the outdoor queue is appealing. Flocked by vibrant mid-century modern murals, the namesake cart first perfectly within the Palm Springs-inspired decor of Pixar Pier’s “Incredibles”-themed area, all of which pays homage to Jack-Jack’s delicious method of reaching homeostasis.
Fans with dietary restrictions shouldn’t have to call Edna Mode for a built-in escape parachute, as there are still multiple options on hand.The namesake cart serves two others sweets — a shortbread cookie and gluten-friendly Incredicookie — as well as strawberry milk, chocolate milk and vanilla almond milk.
Whether or not you choose to dunk the behemoth treat, believe the hype: Jack-Jack’s Cookie Num Num is a must on your next trip to the California park. And if that cookie smell on Incredicoaster inspires you to go back multiple times, rest assured, you won’t be the only one.
