Review: Pop Eats has great comfort food but do the items really pop?

If you are looking for some great comfort food that reminds you of home, head to Pop Eats at EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts. While some items have returned, one item is brand new!

EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts is here now through February 20, 2023. From dozens of food and beverage items to fun photos and a special light show on Spaceship Earth, this festival provides so much fun and entertainment.

Be sure to check out everything NEW for this year’s festival in this post HERE. You can also find all of the menus for the many food locations HERE. One of the best parts of EPCOT’s festivals is trying all of the different food from various food booths around World Showcase.

Pop Eats can be found near the Port of Entry, just as you enter from Future World. This booth is inspired by Pop Art of the Twentieth Century. Pop Art is an art movement that became popular in the 1950s, but really took off in the 1960s. Artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein took everyday objects and turned them into art!

Andy Warhol is well known for his artworks of Campbell’s soup cans, but he also created pieces starring who other than Mickey Mouse!

Our Experience

This food studio returned again this year. You can read Jamie’s review from 2022 HERE. While it has a few of the same items as before, one item is new. We tried the Tomato Soup with Pimento Cheese, Bacon and Fried Green Tomato Grilled Cheese.

The Tomato Soup was served hot, was full of flavor, and very creamy.

It was really great to have on an unusually cold day in Florida.

While the Grilled Cheese also had a ton of mixed flavors and was okay, it seemed to have an odd texture that made the dish just not quite as enjoyable to myself (Maggie). I did not really taste too much bacon, and the fried green tomatoes were hard to really pick out.

Unfortunately, like Jamie said in her review from before, the Almond Frangipane Cake was just not good. It seemed dry and while I can appreciate the design, a dessert from another one of the many studios would have been much better. Overall, if I were to visit the studio again, I would just stick to the plain Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese.
