Back in May, during our annual pilgrimage to Disneyland in honor of Mother's Day, my family and I were standing in a two hour line for the "Finding Nemo" ride (overrated. bring back the yellow submarine!) and having a discussion about the vast superiority of Brazilian churros over the americanized version they sell at amusement parks. Now, while it's hard to go wrong with fried dough covered in cinnamon sugar, Brazilian churros take the entire category up a few notches by taking the empty center hole and filling it with....wait for it...condensed milk custardy goodness. 

I think I just drooled on my keyboard. 

So while waiting in line we were talking about our new family business venture of gourmet varieties of churros. The American public would go CRAZY for these things. All different flavors! Sweet! Savory! Delivery! Churros at your doorstep!!! GENIUS!!!!! I even came up with the brilliant name for the family business. Are you ready? You might not be ready. It's pretty awesome. "Churronimo!" Say it out loud. I just blew your mind, huh?'s not like I've been working late on a business plan and I'm not necessarily accusing Disney of planting spies within their lines. Ok. Yes I am. That whole place is bugged, man. Seriously. I open my Daily Candy email this morning to find.....this: I'm not sure if I'm going to sue or not, but I might write a strongly worded letter to Disney. That letter may or may not be covered in cinnamon sugar, custard and chocolate icing.....drooooool.

You should try those churros, I went yesterday. The place looks GREAT

I brought home a 5 pack and waited anxiously all day to enjoy the goods with my hubby.

I bought triple chocolate, original, white chocolate coconut, macadamia and creme brule

They were that Fuckin' Good!

Their huge! They look so good you're not sure if you want to eat it, or keep it displayed somewhere. So many flavors! Though triple chocolate is my favorite there.

However, they're expensive!

I went there this weekend! They were okay, i would have liked them to be hot, but that would have melted all the chocolate off. I like the hot crispy/soft classic churro
