Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) at Universal Orlando has become known for its amazing scares, themed drinks, and a few food items. The event is known for food such as twisted taters and pizza fries. These items are good, but this year HHN is filled with themed food stands / tents. One of them is the Tooth Fairy Revenge themed tent, Sweet Shop.


The house that inspired this tent is based on an original concept of a house built around the idea of ​​a child not giving his teeth to the tooth fairy. As you might expect, this tale doesn’t have a happy ending. If you are visiting HHN30 and want to treat yourself, the Candy Tent near Music Square can help.

One menu item that has received a wide range of reviews is the Bourbon Confit Pork Belly. It’s fair trade style food with a stick to hold the treat as you head to your next home. The menu says it’s a thick pork belly skewer coated in a bourbon glazed shell for $ 9.99.

A few things are noticeable about this treat. The candied coating is impressive. In fact, the negative reviews of this article are based on the strength of the coating surrounding the meat, not the taste. If you have sensitive teeth or fear the dentist more than the tooth fairy HHN, then this might not be the treat for you.

However, the coating is of good quality which compliments the meat. The sweet flavor of the fruit is suitable for this dish. When combined with the dried pork belly, the taste is remarkably good. The pork belly is not tough and some reviewers think this pork belly would taste great even without the candied coating.

This item can be difficult to eat. As mentioned, your dentist may not like this treatment for your teeth due to the hardness factor. Also, it can get a bit messy when drilling the siding. It’s designed with the stick for walking while dining, but you might want to sit down for this one. Some guests report that a large portion of the item falls to the ground as it is eaten.

A few of my Universal Orlando veteran friends say this treat is not to be missed. If you plan to take advantage of the HHN30, this should be taken into account for your culinary enjoyment.
