Meet The Churro Dog

Churro-Dog-03042015-970x545

Weighing in at 1,117 calories (but who’s counting) meet The Churro Dog, the newest taste treat to be served at Chase Field home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Churro Dog starts out with a Long John chocolate-glazed donut sliced lengthwise. Nestled inside is a warm cinnamon sugar churro which is topped with frozen yogurt and then drizzled with both caramel and chocolate sauces.

This decadent desert only costs $8, a bargain compared to the Diamondback’s last foray into extreme concession stand food, the D-Bat Dog: an 18-inch corndog stuffed with jalapenos and cheese, wrapped in bacon, and served with a side of fries that clocked in at $25.
