SeaWorld’s Christ­mas treats make the hol­i­days sweeter

Orlando Sentinel - - PEOPLE & ARTS - By Amy Drew Thomp­son

There’s loads to be ex­cited about over at SeaWorld, where three mil­lion lights and an all-new pa­rade are among the high­lights of this year’s Christ­mas Cel­e­bra­tion. Plan­ning on a visit? Odds are good some­one in your party will be in­ter­ested in mak­ing the sea­son sweeter.

The folks at SeaWorld must have been count­ing on it, be­cause they’ve in­tro­duced a host of new hol­i­day treats, all of which are avail­able now through Dec. 31.

Or­lando’s weather is un­pre­dictable in win­ter­time. In the event of a cool snap, you’re cov­ered. Hot cocoa with whipped cream and top­pings comes in a Christ­mas sou­venir mug ($7.99) and in an ar­ray of fla­vors: but­ter­scotch (topped with crushed But­terfin­ger), marsh­mal­low (topped with mini marsh­mal­lows), white choco­late (topped with milk choco­late shav­ings), gin­ger­bread (topped with crushed gin­ger snap cook­ies) and pep­per­mint (topped with crushed pep­per­mint). Re­fills avail­able for $3.99.

Less tra­di­tional, the gooey mon­key bread topped with bour­bon crème anglaise ($8.99) is served in a waf­fle cone.

And speak­ing of waf­fles, mad­ness abounds. At $6.99 apiece, va­ri­ety is plen­ti­ful in berry (with wild rasp­berry sauce), Bos­ton cream (topped with Bavar­ian cream and choco­late sauce), peanut but­ter (with ba­nana, peanut but­ter and choco­late sauce) or Guin­ness (topped with ba­con, maple syrup and Guin­ness-in­fused cream). The rest get the stan­dard whipped cream slather­ing.

Kids — and those who en­joy a bit of in­ter­ac­tive fun with their desserts — will love the Cookie & Milk op­tion ($6.99), a sugar cookie dec­o­rat­ing kit that comes with ic­ing, sprin­kles and Christ­mas candy — and yes, you’ll get some milk to wash it down. mem­ber­ship.or­lan­dosen­tinel.com/news­let­ters.
