Friday Feast: Tower of Terror 10-Miler Post Race Snacks
|October 12, 2012||Posted by Running at Disney under Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler|
Are you sick of hearing about the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler yet?? No? Good!
After the finish line at runDisney races, runners enter an area full of food and drinks. Generally there is water, Powerade, bananas galore and a box of snacks. Each race seems to have something different. We had hummus in the post-race snacks at the Princess Half Marathon. Here’s what we got at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler:
This was an interesting and more robust box than the Princess I thought. Here we have:
- Dried fruit & nut mix
- Multi-Grain Crackers (love these!)
- White cheddar cheese spread (??)
- Snap Infusion tart candies
- Cliff Bar
- Almond Roca chocolate toffee
- Wet-nap (nice addition!)
There were a lot of sweet options in this box! Cliff Bars don’t sit well with me so I didn’t try this, but I can imagine that it was a sweet chocolate as most protein bars are. Then there was the Almond Roca, which is chocolate toffee covered in almonds…this was super good! I’m a big toffee fan, so a win for me. I guess the Snap Infusion tart candies weren’t actually sweet, but they are a “supercandy” as stated on their website. I don’t love tart candies, or any similar hard candy for that matter (strange I know!), so these didn’t do much for me.
The dried fruit & nut mix was the same brand from the Princess Half, which I didn’t love because I think the fruit is too sweet and the nuts too salty. But again, I picked out the almonds and was happy with that. Lastly, we have the crackers and cheese spread. I LOVE the multi-grain crackers and always wish the bag was bigger, but I was skeptical of the cheese. Unrefrigerated dairy products always skeeve me out a bit. B was brave enough to try it and wasn’t a fan, calling it a “low quality Laughing Cow cheese.” Hmmmm….
These boxes are great snacks, but after a long race I’m definitely looking for some more sustenance…like this:
Yes, I know we will never get this after a race, so I greatly appreciate the food that is provided. This is where the Disney difference comes in because snack boxes like this are not common in most local races. So even though I might not love everything, good effort!
What did you think of the post race snacks? What would you like to see in the boxes going forward?
