Photos of Menu Items from Día de Los Muertos at Halloween Horror Nights 31
*NEW* Chicharrones de Harina con Azucar y Canela – $4.29
Deep fried flour crisps seasoned with cinnamon and sugar
These tasted like Taco Bell cinnamon twists, only crunchier, almost to the point of being stale.
Frankly, they weren’t worth it to us.
*NEW* Tamales de los Muertos – $9.49
Pork and cheese tamales, topped with a red mole sauce and Cotija cheese
These tamales were the bomb!
Besides the popcorn (as seen below), the tamales were our favorite.
They’re packed with tons of flavor and they taste very fresh. These are definitely worth a try!
*NEW* Día de Los Muertos Popcorn – $24.99
Guadalajara hot sauce flavored popcorn
The popcorn comes in a glowing calavera bucket. The popcorn has a delicious spicy seasoning on it, but it does pack a really powerful punch.
It’s so spicy, you’ll likely be looking for a drink, but we couldn’t stop eating it. Even our reporter who isn’t a popcorn fan loved this! It proved to be an amazing snack that brings the heat.
*NEW* Roasted Sweet Potato & Mushroom Street Taco – $8.29
Roasted sweet potato and mushroom street tacos, topped with onions, vegan crumbled cheese, cilantro and served with birria consommé

These street tacos were a knockout!
The consommé sauce was thick, rich and spicy.
The mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and onions are piled high and generously portioned.
This is an awesome vegan option that everyone will enjoy.
*NEW* Mangonada Popsicle – $5.49
Mango popsicle with Tajin®, chamoy, garnished with a slice of lime
The popsicle was sweet, fruity, and really refreshing and fruity.
It comes with Tajin and lime, which accent the flavor of the popsicle well.
*NEW* Burning Skull – $15.49
Tequila-based drink with gran gala liquer, lime juice, simple syrup, mango nectar, pineapple juice, jalapeno and basil concentrate mixed with smoked chipotle pepper bitters and served in a skull-shaped souvenir cup
This was really good, and comes with a Mangonada popsicle of its own. Of the two specialty cocktails, we preferred this one.
*NEW* Michelada – $15.49
Even though it comes in a cool glowing skull cup, this proved not to be our kind of drink.
This had a very strong beer taste that turned us off. We wouldn’t recommend it.
