Well, once Jack and I spied this bag of mini churros at Trader Joe's yesterday, I knew we had to try them. They're in the freezer section.
[note: It's not easy to take a picture and pour cinnamon sugar evenly. ;)]
An 8-ounce bag costs $3.99.
A mom's (my) take: The exterior of these were crispy and golden...with a perfect sprinkling on cinnamon-sugar (included). The interior, though, was doughy. I'm not sure if this is how churros are supposed to be, but I was expecting them to be lighter. These were the consistency of mashed potatoes. Hmmm. The churros are a convenient little dessert to pop in the oven, however, I'm not sure I would purchase these again.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: These little guys are dangerous! At first bite, all you can really taste is the sugary goodness all over the outside--which is not at all a bad thing! However, it soon yields to the buttery, semi-flaky dough on the inside, which I can't personally get enough of. It's reminiscent of a funnel cake. I could have quite a few of these in one sitting, and I'm thinking I'll try them with some Nutella next time...
