Churros, the fried dough street food treat enjoyed across Latin America, are traditionally coated in cinnamon sugar. They often come with a chocolate or caramel dipping sauce.
Churros are growing in popularity not just as a simple dessert or snack, but also as a flavor, the classic sweet cinnamon taste being added to everything from ice cream and coffee to tequila and savory snacks.
The flavor, whether in its traditional or non-traditional form, is extremely popular among consumers, with 76% of those who’ve tried it saying they love or like it, according to market research firm Datassential’s FLAVOR report.
