That totally shocks me. Considering I eat about one million of those three million. I can't believe others are ONLY eating a mere TWO million.

Just kidding. But I do eat my fair share :)

A visit to DL is not complete until you have had a churro. :yay:
But after discovering Dole Whips, I now feel the same way about those too. Sorry, didn't mean to change food subject. It's all eatmypixiedust's fault. :rolleyes1

So Albort, how many of that three million have you sold personally?;) I am not surprised they have sold that many, they are the best! WDW probably only sells about half that amount and half of the ones sold are thrown out since they are yucky!

I miss the holiday churros you could get during Christmas a while back (5+ years?). Instead of the churros being rolled in cinnamon and sugar, they were rolled in some other sugary concoction, one of which was red. They were pretty tasty that way and definitely increased my consumption of them.

I agree with that. We bought some churros at WDW expecting the same as DL...no comparison.

WDW Churros were awful! :sick:

That's only counting the churros they eat while visiting Disneyland. Who knows how many they eat elsewhere. Oink Oink. Oink.

I did not contribute even one churro to that count. Time to plan another trip to Disneyland!!!

Ok, we didn't get them our last visit. :( I was sad!!! So I got one at the ballpark instead (we go to A's games regularly) and it was the WORST churro I've ever had....it was terrible. I took two bites and couldn't finish it. I gave the rest to the kids, they didn't like it much either but they ate it! I can't wait to get back to DL soon so I can have a churro!!!

My son ate another 1 million, just by himself. so the rest of you guys are slackin'! LOL

You know what doesn't taste good at DL, though? The soft pretzels. It's cool that it's shaped like Mickey Mouse, but the taste factor is *bleh*. I bought one for each of the kids as a snack to tide us over until a late dinner. they each took one bite and wouldn't touch the rest. We are spoiled by Auntie Anne's pretzels at the mall. It's too bad DL's pretzels aren't like that. I'm positive they could be shaped like Mickey Mouse, too.

I guess my real question is...are they made with, in any way, animal fat (other than dairy fat)? Comparing to donuts is interesting, as some donuts (the BEST ones) are made with vegetable oil, while others (greasy nasty funky-smelling) are fried in lard-type fats. IMO.

Here's on of our contributions ... mmmmmm churro ......

churros are (or should be) soft and chewy on the inside, a little crispy on the outside and are covered with cin/sugar ...

the beignets are our favorite. :banana: we head straight to the jazz kitchen place as soon a we arrive and get the mickey ones in the park every day we are there, sometimes twice. they are amazing. not a big fan of the churros though. not sure why, it is still a fried hunk of dough rolled in a sugar, not much different than a beignet or doughnut. maybe it is the powdered sugar that makes the difference

what is amazing is how many people have never heard of a churro. . . and costco has these double sized ones that are twisted and O M G fresh and chewy and O M G to die for, so for me the dl's aren't as fresh. .. not that it stops my kids from having a few. now the popcorn. . . just the right amount of salt and yummy!

I am always sad that DL's popcorn always smells soooooooo much better then it tastes :sad2: I think its the butter flavor they use. I try not to succumb to the smell.

I personally am the biggest fan of the Fritters though they aren't as wonderful as they use to be :(
