Simba Pretzel Tea Pairing

One of our favorite quick snacks in Animal Kingdom is the Simba Pretzel. This pretzel is big and soft and slightly chewy as a giant pretzel should be, and it is in the shape of Simba! 


We thought a natural pairing to go with the pretzel would be the African Celebration rooibos, which can be found at the Joffrey’s Kiosk in the park. We suggest getting this caffeine free rooibos blend ordered hot in Asia, and by the time you grab your Simba Pretzel in Africa, it will be cooled down enough to enjoy some sipping and food pairing.

This tea is honestly one of our faves, it has the unique flavor combination of mandarin, vanilla, almond and a hint of rose.


The flavors of the tea work really well with the elements of the pretzel. The doughiness seems to enhance all the flavors in the rooibos blend and the salt really brings out the creamy taste. This is definitely one of our go tos while in Animal Kingdom and we highly suggest you give them a try next time you are there!

Do you think the Simba pretzel tastes different from the Mickey pretzel? For us, it seemed a little sweeter, but mostly, it is more doughy since the shape has larger sections than the Mickey ones have.
