Funnel Cake Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Funnel Cake Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Stop the presses. Funnel Cake, the permanent Quick Service location in America, finally has a funnel cake we actually like!

The exclusive 2023 Food and Wine funnel cake is a Candied Bacon Funnel Cake, a funnel cake topped with vanilla ice cream, candied bacon, and maple syrup drizzle.

What makes this year’s funnel cake a good option is it’s a full size funnel cake compared to a mini one that’s been served in previous years. Better yet — the price remains the same and wasn’t increased!

While the ice cream does make it a bit difficult to eat (it melts fast!), this truly isn’t a bad funnel cake.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)

Our Thoughts

Heather: This is the best festival funnel cake that we’ve seen in a LONG time. The downside is the ice cream; it melts SO fast, but overall, pretty darn good AND it is a full-size (not a small one like we’ve seen in the past).
Felicia: The best funnel cake that’s been offered during a festival since we started doing reviews. It’s a full size funnel cake as opposed to a mini one in previous years. The price didn’t change so that’s good. And then flavors all go together well. My one complaint is that the ice cream makes it difficult to eat.
