Disney has a new grilled cheese sandwich made with doughnuts, and fans aren't sure how to feel about it
- Disney World is now selling grilled cheese on doughnuts.
- The sandwich is sold at the Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew shop in Disney Springs.
- Fans and critics took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the new Disney sandwich.
Brooke McDonald of Simplemost tried the sandwich herself and said it's "more sweet than savory," "oozing" with cheese, and "rich" in flavor. McDonald also spoke with Mike Crave, the managing director of Everglazed, about how the sandwich came to be."We knew we wanted a couple of savory sandwiches to compliment the sweet donuts and what's better than a classic grilled cheese with a twist?" Crave said.
The team uses four slices of American cheese, which Crave said creates their ideal melty consistency. "Our chefs grill the sweet bun halves on the cut sides, flip them over and then pile on the cheese - and we mean pile it on," he added. "As the cheese begins to melt, the halves are put together and the sandwich is griddled until the cheese is ready to ooze."
Some Disney fans were horrified, while others loved the idea of a doughnut grilled cheeseDisney lovers took to Twitter to share their reactions to the over-the-top grilled cheese, and not everyone was thrilled with the concept.
