The Honey Bee-stro Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Upon entering the World Showcase entrance plaza, you’ll see the Honey Bee-stro booth.

As stated in the name, the food and beverages served here are not only inspired by honey, but infused with it as well.

This year, there are a range of honey-inspired offerings, including the returning Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with honey whipped cream, whipped honey, crystalized honey, honeycomb, dehydrated honey, and fennel pollen meringue kisses.

Similar to last year, we once again walked away loving many of the food offerings.

We also enjoyed the non-alcoholic shake — the Honey-Peach Cobbler Freeze with Streusel — that was served in a Spike the Bee sipper in 2022. Unfortunately, there isn’t a Spike the Bee souvenir cup this year.

Chicken And Waffle Honey Beestro

  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 5.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Sooo good. Surprising flavors in the waffle. Has a little kick to it.
Heather: It is sweet, a little spicy, and really, really good.
Felicia: What a fun twist on chicken and waffles. The corn bread waffle is tasty and soft. The chicken is crispy and spicy in a good way. And the honey butter is the perfect amount of sweet.

Pollinator Flatbread

Pollinator Flatbread with honey-whipped mascarpone, honey caramelized onions, blueberry gastrique, prosciutto, honey-whipped goat cheese, arugula, honey vinaigrette, and bee pollen. This is a new festival item for 2023.

  • Price: $6.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Gorgeous presentation with so many ingredients. Good portion. Great flavors.
Heather: Too many flavors. They tried to make fetch happened – and it didn’t.
Felicia: Fantastic mix of flavors. Great combination of sweet and savory. Flatbread base is cooked perfectly and a great base for the toppings. Huge portion.

Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake

Honey-mascarpone cheesecake with honey whipped cream, whipped honey, crystalized honey, honeycomb, dehydrated honey, and fennel pollen meringue kisses.

Cheesecake Honey Beestro
  • Price: $5.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Honey in various forms and textures. Enjoyed this light dessert.
Heather: Delicious. Loved it. Light and fresh.
Felicia: Delicious. The cheesecake is a solid cheesecake and all of the various honey components are good and add to it. Slight orange flavor.
Allyson: Liked this so much more this year than last year. A solid cheesecake.

Honey-Peach Freeze

A frozen smoothie with honey and peach.

Honey Peach Cobbler Freeze Honey Beestro
  • Price: $4.75
  • Special Diets: No
  • Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: The peach flavor is delicious and the souvenir cup is adorable.
Heather: Very peachy. Would be good as a dessert – but it is over the top sweet.
Felicia: It only faintly tastes of peach, and the peach flavor that is there is artificial. It’s also very creamy and thick and so sweet.
Allyson: This is a good non-alcohol option. Almost tastes like a milkshake.

B. Nektar New Wave Lemonade Mead

This New Wave Lemonade Mead is made by B. Nektar in Ferndale, Michigan.

Lemonade Mead Honey Beestro
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great combo of sweet honey and sour lemon. Light and refreshing.
Heather: Light and refreshing mead with hints of citrus. But – be warned, it is on the sweet side.
Felicia: Another super sweet drink that isn’t great. Just a slight lemonade flavor but if you don’t like mead, probably won’t like this.
Allyson: This isn’t overly sweet, but still is just ok. Not my favorite.

Florida Orange Groves Winery Orange Blossom Honey Wine

Honey Wine Honey Beestro
  • Price: $6.50 (glass) / $28.00 (bottle)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light but maybe too light on flavors.
Heather: Very sweet….but would be good as a dessert wine.
Felicia: Another medicine thing. Almost made me feel ill. All the feelings of having to take liquid medicine as a child. Would give negative 1 million if I could.
Allyson: Way too sweet and kind of tastes like medicine.

Honey-Peach Freeze with Blueberry Vodka

A honey-peach freeze with blueberry vodka.

Honey Peach Cobbler Freeze With Blueberry Vodka Honey Beestro
  • Price: $12.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 1.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Whew. Heavy on the vodka. Overpowering. The non-alcoholic option is way better.
Heather: Doesn’t taste anything like the non “Spiked” version. I don’t usually say this – but it has TOO much vodka.
Felicia: Tastes like medicine. So sweet and awful flavor. Would give it a 0 if I could.
Allyson: Uh… talk about straight alcohol. WOW. It is potent. Not for me.
