Don’t Call Me a Churro

The popular Xooro (pronounced “sure-oh”) Premium Spanish Fritters takes regular dessert to an entirely different level with a variety of fillings, coatings, and toppings. When biting into one of their special creations, you’ll experience many dimensions of textures and tastes. Even though it’s similarities to the Spanish doughnut, churros, there is much more to these treats.

One of the great things about this shop is that you can watch the assembly process. Each Xooro dessert starts with a traditional “churro” base. Then special metal injectors fill the base with flavors such as caramel and chocolate. The fritters are then coated, usually with white, milk, or dark chocolate. Finally a topping is added, like sprinkles or chocolate sauce. You’ll be able to sample taste at each step of the process.

A favorite is the new “Pistachio,” filled with a green pistachio filling with a milk chocolate coating, and then topped with nuts. It was a perfect combination of crunchy outside and gooey inside. Also, “Jordan’s Favorite” is a chocoholic’s dream, dark chocolate filling, then coated with white chocolate, and more chocolate for the topping.

Because of their shape, these dessert are perfect for eating on the go.  But since they can get pretty sweet you may want to have a drink with it.  Churros are traditionally served with hot chocolate, so similarly Xooro has a Chocolate Bar of drinks, including the Super Mexican with cinnamon (also in a frozen version), and Nutty Fudgy made of chocolate and nuts. There is also have a Coffee Bar.

Price: Special creations are about $3.50 each
