Today’s Tasty Tuesday is all about Jumbo Turkey Legs! These pre-historic, Fred Flintstone, cartoon pieces of meat that visitors to Walt Disney World either love or hate! We love ’em!
Now, I’ll be honest here, these photos of hubs gnawing down on a turkey leg is actually when we visited Islands of Adventure last year – we’ve actually yet to eat one from a Disney park! But I’m sure they’re the same ;)
We shared the behemoth ‘snack’ between two of us – actually, hubs ended up eating most of it…but it was smoky, salty, juicy, meaty and delicious! I have read online that people don’t think they’re cooked properly because they’re a little pink inside, however, my observations tells me that this is probably due to the smoking process of them. On the downside, they are a bit sinewy, but we somehow managed to get around that. They’re also a whopping 1000 calories (or so I’ve read) so some serious walking around after you’ve eaten one of these bad boys!!
A jumbo turkey leg is exactly what it is – a jumbo turkey leg! They are priced at around $10, just under I believe, and can be bought from a few different places around the World. I took this photo below of the Fife & Drum Tavern in the American Adventure at Epcot World Showcase
I believe you can buy them in Frontierland at Magic Kingdom and in Dinoland USA at Animal Kingdom. I’ll make it my mission to find out all the places you can buy them and let you know!!
Have you ever eaten a Turkey Leg at Walt Disney World?!
