REVIEW: Gingerbread Churro Balls are a Perfect Disney Springs Seasonal Snack

With all the holiday offerings at Disney Springs, it’s hard to find a treat that tickles the seasonal seeking tastebuds without also leaving you in sugar coma. Four Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck, parked near World of Disney, has found just the right balance with their warm and freshly fried Gingerbread Churro Balls and, upon the time of review, there wasn’t even a sign letting you know they were there!

Formed in quarter-size round nuggets, the gingerbread is rolled in sugar, sprinkled with a dash of powdered sugar, and served with a side of cream cheese frosting for your dipping pleasure. Though sweet, they never overpower on their own, leaving the cream cheese to add an extra buzz if the eater so desires. Crunchy on the outside yet soft in the middle, the balls are an excellent texture and just the right size for sharing or pairing with a cup of coffee.

Though one might think a chocolate or confectionary shop would host the best seasonal snack at Disney Springs, leave it up to this barbacoa food truck to ring in the holiday the right way. Just don’t forget to ask if you don’t see it on the menu!

Price: $6.38 (including tax)
