Let’s be real here, the School Bread from Kringla Bakeri og Kafe is overrated.
Yeah, I know all the other food blogs overhype this treat, but come on, is it really that good?
Is it really that incredible?
I don’t think so. Actually I truly dislike it. Scratch that, I hate it. (Yeah I said it, fight me!)
Sure it looks delicious.
But once you take a bite, it’s pretty darn dry.
The cream on top and inside is pretty good, but it’s not life changing. You won’t cry tears of pure satisfaction for every bite you take.
It’s just not THAT great.
That’s why I suggest you try some other Epcot desserts. Desserts that I believe are really tasty and unique. Desserts so good that you will be just sitting in you home just craving to have grace your tastebuds once again.
So with that being said, here are a few of my favorite Epcot desserts that I think are 5x better than the school bread, most of which can be found at the World Showcase.
Flaky layers filled with thick cream topped with sweet icing.
Get it from Les Halles Boulangerie (France).
2. Tarte Aux Fraises
Hands down the best sweet cream and tarte combination you’ll ever eat in your life. And oh yeah, the fresh sweetened strawberries are a nice touch!
Get it from Les Halles Boulangerie (France)
3. Butter and Sugar Crêpe
A warm, chewy, and buttery crepe that’s so simple yet very flavorful.
Get it from Crêpes À Emporter at La Crêperie de Paris (France).
4. Caramel Pecan Bar
For the best Epcot dessert it’s a tie between this and #2. All I can say is that that thick layer of caramel on top and that shortbread-like soft cookie on the bottom make this one of the best things to eat in all of Disney.
If you hate it, I give you permission to meet me at Epcot and punch me in the face.
Get it at Karamell Kuche (Germany).
5. Maple Popcorn
A subtly sweet popcorn with a nice maple flavor. This snack reminds of of caramel popcorn but with a lot of maple flavoring.
Get this from the The Popcorn in Canada Cart (Canada Pavilion).
6. Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwich
Just imagine 2 chewy Strawberry macaroons filled with strawberries and creme ice cream. Mmmm.
Get this from L’Artisan de Glaces (France).
7. Liege Waffle
Warm, soft, and caramelized Brioche waffle filled with sugar pearls and topped with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and a chocolate drizzle.
Get it from Connections Eatery (World Celebration)

Completely agree with you. Had the SchoolBread yesterday in the middle of the July heat and rain, and was disappointed big time. Tried it due to all the talk about it, when in fact, it’s just a whole wheat bun stuffed with custard and topped with coconut. The bun was dry, too.
Had the croissant donut on our way out, and it was one of the best things I had all day, and worth the almost $6US for it!
Thanks for the tip!
I completely agree. I had to try the school bread after hearing so many rave reviews, then I got it, and we couldn’t even finish it in a family of 4.
The last time I had the croissant donut a couple years ago it wasn’t good it all, it was dry and disappointing, maybe they have gotten better, or I just got a bad one. Also, the last time we got the churros from La Cantina, it was hard and dry, so maybe that was an off day too.
They changed the school bread years ago— it used to be delicious, more moist and less sweet. The texture of the bun was more soft and not wheat-like and dry at all. It used to be incredibly delicious— my guess is that’s why it had been raved about so much.

The cream inside and out was a lot different as well, it’s been almost a decade since I tried it, and wish I could have the old version again!

Agree with you. My daughter and I love it. I even make it at home for us.
Disagree! What you list are definitely sweeter, but not better. After all, better is just a matter of perspective. Had school bread yesterday and it was one of my favorite sweet, but not too sweet, snacks this week.
This is funny because the school bread was my husbands favorite treat we tried, the napoleon was soggy and flavourless, so was the strawberry tart thing and the maple popcorn was inedible! We just went this Christmas and now I am looking for schoolbread copy cat recipes…I guess it’s all about the day you go and who’s in the kitchen!
