THE CHURREO & CHURRO ICE CREAM SANDWICH @ DOWNTOWN DISNEY - ANAHEIM







 THERE'S AN OVEN IN THERE! INSIDE THOSE SILVER DRAWERS ARE CHURROS FRESHLY BAKING



 THIS OREO CHURRO A.K.A. THE CHURREO IS TOTALLY WORTH IT! I LOVED IT! 



THE CALIFORNIA CHURRO CART HAS A VARIETY OF STRANGE BUT YUMMY FLAVORS. There's already pumpkin spice, strawberry & cream, cinnamon sugar, apple cinnamon, salted caramel, and pina colada at this little cart. But the newest collaboration with the Oreo company is the talk of the town here and very well deserves to be.

THE OREO CHURRO, or what I like to call the "Churreo" is black and twisted (punny....?!) with a surprisingly chocolate-y Oreo taste! It was so chocolate-y in the bestest of ways and reminded me of my beloved but discontinued (only sold in Korea now) Oreo O's Cereal. It doesn't taste very creamy though like the actual oreo cookie with the cream in the middle until you drip it with the oreo cream that it comes with. The cream itself here tastes a lot like frosting. The kind of frosting you could buy from the grocery store like the Pilsbury brand is similar to this taste. Overly sweet. I didn't dip too much because I didn't want it to be too sweet. The two do go well together though so when you buy it don't be too lazy to dip that churreo! Oh, and by the way, the Churro Oreo is actually half the size of the other churros the cart sells. Wish they sold longer versions...

THE CHURRO CART ALSO BAKES FRESH CHURRO ICE CREAM SANDWICHES. I tried my first one from Snow Monster at its Huntington Beach location. I'm glad there's another place to get this crazy concoction in Orange County now right next to the Happiest Place on Earth. I  had a lot of expectations but this was pretty much a bust. Yes, the churros were made fresh. Yes, the application of the sandwich making was fresh. And yes, it looked absolutely delicious ... until you tried to eat it. This was quite a disappointment but I learned that sometimes "churro" and "ice cream sandwich" together is just too good to be true. The freshly baked churro made the ice cream melt into a pool of vanilla. Because of that, Kev and I couldn't even eat it as a sandwich. We tried to but it was easier to just eat the churro and ice cream turned milkshake separately. It was also wayyyy to sweet. Probably never ordering that beauty of a mess ever again.

THE OTHER CHURRO FLAVORS ARE GOOD TOO. I've already tried the Salted Caramel, Pumpkin Spice, and Apple Cinnamon and they're all great flavors. Salted Caramel and Apple Cinnamon are my faves outta those three! Of course, the Cinnamon Sugar is a great classic too!

WHERE TO FIND THE CALIFORNIA CHURRO CART: There are actually two of these carts at Downtown Disney! Since it's at Downtown Disney, you can get your hands on these yummy churros without entering Disneyland! YES! ANYONE CAN GET THESE! Anyways, There's one churro cart that sells both the Oreo Churro and Churro Ice cream Sandwich and that is the one near the entrance to Downtown Disney kind of near the AMC Theatre, Earls Sandwich, etc. There's another California Churro cart deeper down the Downtown Disney Road and that one is near the Disney Store / Starbucks area. This second cart does not sell the Churro Ice Cream Sandwich but does sell the Oreo Churro. However, it's less popular than the other cart and probably doesn't stock up on those Oreo Churros as much. So when in doubt, go to that first California Churro Cart because they have it all!

BOTTOM LINE: 

  • GET THE CHURRO OREO! 
  • THE CHURRO ICE CREAM SANDWICH (VANILLA ICE CREAM) IS NOT WORTH IT.
