REVIEW: Coffee-and-Donut Churro Joins Halloween Offerings at Disney California Adventure

A new fall Coffee and Donut Churro has roared into Disney California Adventure as restaurants and stands around the park are introducing new Halloween and autumn-oriented treats.

If you’re a fan of coffee-flavored desserts or coffee, in general, you’re going to love this churro. The coffee flavor is prevalent and is definitely the start of the dish, with the chocolate flavor being largely relegated to the sauce and blending with the coffee sugar-coated churros to create an almost mocha sensation.

While we loved the heavy coffee flavor, we have to admit that this churro won’t be for everyone. If you generally avoid coffee or don’t like coffee-flavored items, this treat won’t check any boxes for you.

The quality of the churros themselves also left a bit to be desired. They were a tad stale (perhaps due to the heat) and quite soggy due to the abundance of whipped topping placed along the top.

It’s a fun, simple dish that would’ve been a bigger win for us on a cooler day with less whipped topping, but if coffee isn’t your thing, it’s probably best to avoid this one.

Halloween offerings at Disneyland will be available through November 9.
