Earlier in the season, we broke down the new menu items that they were rolling out in Chase Field. You can find that here. Now through the end of the season, or whenever I run out of things to eat, I’m going to be doing some reports on these new delicacies, and we start with the Churro Dog 2.0
Let’s refresh our memories on what the 2.0 is, shall we?
White iced long john donut, churro rolled in Oreo crumbs, frozen yogurt, whipped cream and topped with strawberry topping, chocolate sauce and Oreo cookie crumbs
Location: Designated Dessert portables
Sounds good right? I mean, I enjoyed the original Churro Dog, so this sounds like it makes an already great thing even better! Well...
It just really doesn’t. Now, don’t get me wrong, the original was hardly a Michelin star dish. It is basically the embodiment of diabetes. But oddly enough, the original was a little more balanced. With the Oreo crumbs and strawberry sauce, it ends up just blurring together and not tasting like anything. With the original, you could actually taste the chocolate and the caramel.
I mean, don’t get me wrong. I ate the whole bloody thing. But this time around, I don’t think I’ll be wanting to get another one any time soon, unlike the first one.
A couple things that might improve it. Instead of just covering the churro and the top of the frozen yogurt with Oreo crumbs, a chocolate flavored churro would probably help the flavors actually stand out. And you know, maybe using... real strawberries instead of just a syrup would be an improvement, but that probably would never happen. When it’s all said and done. 2 out of 5 diamonds
