Your guide to the top 5 flavors at EPCOT you don't want to miss

There are three festivals that are held throughout the year at EPCOT and each comes with their own delicacies of flavor but these five are your best options when the festivals are not happening.

The Food and Wine Festival. The Flower and Garden Festival. The Art Festival. Each with their own unique cuisine and drinks. Each an event that most Disney park fans don't miss. In those days when the kiosks are closed, what are you going to delight your tongue with?

While the festival foods and drinks come and go, these treats are available most if not all of the year so whether you are visiting EPCOT for the first time or the first time when a festival of flavors wasn't surrounding World Showcase, you can find these amazing bites and drops!

Tokyo Sunrise and Violet Saki - We give you two for the price of one. These can be found in the kiosk across from the gift shop at the Japan Pavilion. One is made of imported Japanese Saki and the other is made of Schnapps and rum. Both are delicious. These two dishes have a big following and as we wrote about previously, have spurned a pretty big debate over the years. Try it out and see which one you love the most.

Caramel Popcorn - Don't confuse this popped corn with the almost equally tasty Maple Popcorn located in the U.K. Pavilion. This corn is popped fresh in Germany's Karamell-Kuche the Werther's Original caramel shop. Grab yourself a caramel apple as well while you are there and may as well hit the Grapefruit Bier "Schoefferhoffer" as well and make it a triple-treat!

Les Halles BouLangerie-Patisserie - It doesn't matter what you get here it's all spectacularly delightful. For me, it's always the ham and cheese on the small baguette or the apple and gruyere sandwich. There are pastries, cookies, and fresh-baked breads.

Located in the France Pavilion, go toward the Eiffel Tower and follow the path to the left past the ice cream shop with the really long line and then go into the gift shop and you will find it in the back left. Take out your wallet and have a field day. They will give you bags to take it out of the park and back to your hotel. I order enough to eat on my drive home! This is my 100% personal favorite bites in any of the parks.

Choza de Margarita - This Margarita stop is a must for lovers of the Mexican beverage. There are multiple flavors to choose from and some you never thought would go together but absolutely do! It will be on your left across from the counter service food building as you enter the Mexico Pavilion.

Fish and Chips - Yeah, you've had fish and chips before but these are amazing and my son's favorite eat at any of the Disney Parks. Head to the U.K. Pavilion and you can't miss it. It's just before you go up the hill towards the bridge. The steak style "chips" (fries) are nice and thick and yet soft inside and you get two big filets. Don't forget the tartar sauce and vinegar. May as well go to the Rose and Crown too and grab a Guiness draft!

Ice Cream Martini - yes, you heard that right. Back in France, remember that ice cream parlor I told you to walk by, the one with the long line? Well, that's because it is the best ice cream in the entire city of Orlando and one of their treats is an ice cream martini that simply can't be passed by. L'Artisan des Glaces is the place. Choose your ice cream flavors (you get two) and then enjoy the Grand Marnie, rum, and vodka that goes over it. It goes over so very well!
