Although the holiday decorations sparkle, the taste of the season is what many guests crave. From the Holiday Tribute Store to stops around the theme parks, the Universal Orlando chefs have a variety of treats that tempt guests.

Here are some tasty new selections from the 2022 Universal Orlando Holiday Menu.

Earl’s Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Acorn Bomb

As Universal Orlando fans know, Earl the Squirrel is a favorite holiday character. Those warm nuts are a tasty treat while watching the holiday parade.

This year, Earl inspired one of the holiday treats that has become a favorite at Universal Orlando, the hot chocolate bomb. As this acorn melts, it adds salted caramel and mini marshmallows into the Italian hot chocolate. That combination of sweet, salty, and creamy is holiday perfection.

Earl’s Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Acorn Bomb is available at TODAY Café and Battery Park.
