Pastel pink pastries, s’mores dipping sauce, Dole Whip donuts — Disney has unleashed plenty of crazy sweets in recent months, but nothing compares to its newest creation. That’s because the latest churro flavor isn’t just a new twist on the classic — it’s practically two desserts in one.
Disneyland just debuted a carrot cake churro that’s better than the sum of its parts, and may very well be the greatest flavor concoction the theme park has ever devised. The sugary cinnamon snack is first rolled in carrot cake sugar, which tastes exactly like a fresh, sweet slice, but the kicker comes by way of its dipping sauce, a cream cheese icing with bits of raisins and carrot speckled throughout.
Dunk one in the other and you’ll be shocked it’s not the classic cake — or that this knockout combination didn’t arrive sooner.
Its debut comes in tandem with Pixar Fest, the summer-long event celebrating of the beloved characters with entertainment, fireworks and special seasonal treats from April 13 to September 3 at Disneyland, in Anaheim, California.
Churro fans can rejoice further, as this carrot cake creation isn’t the only one Disneyland has unleashed for Pixar Fest. Five festive treats honoring the celebrated animation studio will be sold in different locations across the two parks.
There is a cocoa churro with spiced Mexican chocolate dipping sauce paying homage to recent Oscar winner “Coco,” a rainbow fruit churro mimicking the design of “Up”’s colorful “snipe” bird Kevin, a strawberry churro in the likeness of Lotso from “Toy Story 3,” and a specialty churro covered with donut icing and cocoa cereal for “A Bug’s Life.”
With so many options, fans will need all summer to try them all.
