Hawai’i Marketplace at Food and Wine

One of the more popular booths at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is the 2020 Hawai’i Marketplace. Hawai’i is where you can pick up a pork slider or SPAM hash.

Both of the menu items are returning this year. At this point, I haven’t had the opportunity to do an updated review, but I can tell you that this is one of the busiest booths you’ll encounter at the festival.

However, If you decide to visit yourself this year, I recommend that you try the food items here over the drink items.

Here’s a preview of the menu at the 2020 Hawai’i Food and Wine Festival booth. Prices for the food items are pretty reasonable here.

But the drink items, especially the Aulani Sunrise, are relatively extreme. Since I opted only to do a limited amount of drink reviews this year, this is what I ended up choosing from the Hawai’i marketplace.

And here’s a look at that Aulani Sunrise.

It was fine, like fruit punch, as far as taste goes. The drink was pleasant but nothing worth writing about on this blog.

The real disappointment was the souvenir cup that might have made up for the very basic drink. Unfortunately, this cup wouldn’t last one cycle through the dishwasher. It’s some of the thinnest plastic I have ever encountered. Literally, it would crack if you squeezed it too hard.

So definitely try a slider or maybe even SPAM if that strikes your fancy. But stay away from the plastic cup. The only authentic souvenir you’ll come away with is the memory of how much you spent on the drink.
