The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen in CityWalk

This year, The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen is joining in the Halloween fun with their all-new milkshake – Black Magic Milkshake. This treat is composed of pumpkin dulce de leche ice cream, hazelnut and tombstone sprinkled rim, and a cauldron filled with gummy “body parts” over whipped flames.

Voodoo Doughnut in CityWalk

If you haven’t satisfied your sweet tooth after enjoying Halloween Horror Nights, there is one last place for you to do so on your way out – Voodoo Doughnut in CityWalk. This season, the doughnut masters have crafted a special confection called “Chucky” to celebrate this event. This doughnut includes a yeast shell filled with pumpkin spice Bavarian and is dipped with vanilla frosting with the Chucky logo.

Our Favorite Halloween Horror Nights Food

It appears that Halloween Horror Nights 2022 is shaping up to be one of the tastiest years yet! The offerings this year are innovative and include a wide variety that strays away from what one may deem traditional park fare.

Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the increased amount of plant-based options at each booth. This certainly gives more variety and opportunities for guests, plus, these snacks were some of our personal favorites. 

Speaking of variety, Universal Orlando Resort was inspired by dishes at Universal Beijing Resort and brought some ingredients to Florida. As you will see, some of these inspired foods are placed at the top of our list due to the appetizing blend of flavors we haven’t seen before at Halloween Horror Nights.

Honorable Mention: No “Chance” in Hell PB&J

This delicious dish is a twist on a favorite childhood snack. It receives an honorable mention spot as it has been offered in the past but still deserves a shoutout for both its scrumptious taste and the fact that it is now vegan due to the hot honey ingredient being switched to maple syrup.

6. Chili Lee Ray (Chucky – Springfield, USA)

It is officially soup season, and this vegan chili has warmed our hearts. This chili makes for a hearty meal with quinoa, hominy, and vegan cheese. Whether you are vegan or enjoy the occasional vegan dish, you can’t go wrong with this item. The vegan cheese’s quality and texture were so similar to its dairy alternative that we could hardly tell the difference. The heightened quality of vegan options this year has advanced from years past and, as you’ll see, become must-have meals for HHN 2022

You’ll also notice on our list that many of our favorites this year have a spicy kick to them, including this one. If you don’t usually gravitate towards dishes that have a bit of a heat index, fear not, as there are still plenty of options on the cooler side.

5. Maggot Covered Cheese Dog (Bridge Food – Springfield, USA)

Bugs have arrived at Halloween Horror Nights 2022 in a dedicated haunted house and insect-inspired dishes! As previously mentioned, some of the food this year was inspired by offerings at Universal Beijing Resort – the Maggot Covered Cheese Dog being one of them! This Korean-style corn dog is rolled in puffed rice and black sesame seeds that add a crunch when taking a bite. You’ll again notice a kick with the gochujang drizzle. If you enjoy just a hint of spice, this cheese dog would be a great option to feed your hunger as the fire is turned down a notch from the previously mentioned Chili Lee Ray. 

4. Fried Zombie Brains (Meetz Meats – San Francisco)

We did find the irony in one of our favorite food options being a plant-based dish at a butcher-inspired stand. Going along with the trend of excellent vegan options at HHN 2022, we were enamored with these fried cauliflower florets tossed in gochujang sauce and topped off with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and scallions for a gorgeous garnish. The sauce provided a kick that hasn’t been commonly found in theme park food. We loved it so much that even its meat-alternative counterpart is also high-ranking.

3. Spicy Fried Chicken “Offals” (Meetz Meats – San Francisco)

Similar to the Fried Zombie Brains, these chicken thighs were a beautiful blend of spicy and savory in this meal that was also inspired by Universal Beijing Resort. The chicken was cooked to perfection and tossed in a gochujang sauce that added a delicious heat. The peanuts, crunchy chili, and sesame seed toppers contributed some additional crunch to this dish, as well as an extra layer of intricate flavor.

2. Spicy Turkey & Squash Bun (Gramercy Park)

Continuing with the trend of turning up the heat, this spicy turkey and squash bun mixture compacted together in a bao bun solidified our thoughts on this being the spiciest Halloween Horror Nights yet! Don’t worry though – this bun won’t have you turning red or grabbing the nearest glass of milk. This bao bun has just enough heat to it with the spicy turkey and is cooled off with the flavors of squash. 

This handheld bun will be a must-have on cooler nights later in the season to keep you warm and your stomach satisfied.

1. Tombstone Red Velvet Cake Pop (Gramercy Park)

Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? This dessert takes the cake as our top food item at 2022’s Halloween Horror Nights. Paying homage to the spirit of the season, this cake pop had the best presentation of the season by far with its white chocolate bones and a tombstone shape, making for a classic Halloween display. Looks aside, the red velvet was rich and blended nicely with the exterior frosting. It leaves our taste buds wanting to return to Gramercy Park night after night to get a chance to enjoy this again.
