Ireland is back again at the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival and we’re always happy to see what’s cooking over there. The Cheddar Cheese Stour Dip is back, along with Roasted Sausages and Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake! Let’s see if we have the luck of the Irish in trying everything in my Ireland Review for the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival.
I feel like I’m in the green hills of Ireland right now with that thatched roof! Of course green colors accent the booth!
The food items are the same from last year with only the price on the Warm Chocolate Pudding going up 0.25 cents. They did however get rid of the Twinings Pumpkin Chai Tea and Carmel Shake which was really delicious last year!
- Roasted Irish Sausage with Colcannon Potatoes and Onion Gravy ($5.50)
- Warm Irish Cheddar Cheese and Stout Dip with Irish Brown Bread (V) ($4.75)

Roasted Irish Sausage with Colcannon Potatoes ($5.50):
Sausage and potatoes is about what I imagine when I think of Irish food, and this version was actually really good! One thing I loved was that when you bite into the sausage it has a nice snap to it and the flavor just bursts out! The potatoes though not the color of normal mashed potatoes, we really tasty too, and had a distinct flavor of Guinness in them. Even my friend Jill who doesn’t like Guinness couldn’t resist these things as they were mouthwateringly good! And the gravy with the caramelized onions takes it to another level! Excellent dish and we’ll be back for more soon!
Warm Irish Cheddar Cheese and Stout Dip ($4.75):
Man do I remember how good this was from last year, so I was really looking forward to it again. It did not disappoint! Sure, a hot dip in late Aug/early Sept isn’t the best idea in the world, but this was so good we didn’t even care. I t got guzzled down in about 10 seconds and we were looking for more! It has a sharp cheddar cheese flavor, very rich and creamy. It’s up there with the Cheddar Cheese Soup over in Canada, with a little less “kick” to it, which neither good nor bad. The bread was also really good, very chewy and fresh tasting. Again would have liked another piece but it didn’t hinder our finishing of the dip! Can I please get a gallon of this stuff and just sip on it all day with a straw? Do we still have those here in Disney World??
Warm Chocolate Pudding with Irish Cream Liqueur Custard ($4.25):
This was one that we were also pleasantly surprised with and really enjoyed. I’m not a huge chocolate fan, but even I couldn’t resist this Warm Chocolate Pudding! It was very soft and had a very rich, dark chocolatey flavor to it. The inside had a liquid chocolate core and just oozed out everywhere. And don’t get me started on the Irish Cream Liqueur Custard on top. It was sweet and tasted almost like Baileys poured all over everything. It was a nice balanced to the rich chocolate. The best part is that it’s served warm which gives you a nice cozy feeling inside your belly!! The portion size was just right as this is a very rich dessert, and one you definitely need to try.
Booth Summary and Grade:
The Ireland marketplace was a huge success in our eyes. We liked everything we tried and it’s really hard choosing one item over the others. We’d for sure come back for the Roasted Irish Sausage and the Warm Chocolate Pudding keeps us up at night dreaming about it! If I have to pick though, I’m going with that super cheesy Cheddar Cheese Stout Dip, which you absolutely can’t skip!
If you have to get just one thing: Warm Irish Cheddar Cheese Stout Dip
Overall Grade - 9/10
