Hot Dog Alert #19

You know how much I like unique hot dogs, and I think it borders on art when dog designers go way over the top to give fans a dish to talk about. The Arizona Diamondbacks are the masters of this. Remember they introduce the colossal corndog that was bigger than a chihuahua. Then they introduced baseball's first dessert dog with the Churro Dog. Well, they ain't done. And what better way to offer fans something fantastic and new than to improve upon an already popular product. Introducing the Churro Dog 2.0.

Unlike the New Coke debacle, this upgrade is actually in improvement. It's like the Churro Dog 2.0 is the high end version of a car model. Instead of leather seats and moon roof, you get strawberry sauce and Oreo crumbs.

The Churro Dog. 2.0 starts the same as the original with a split long John donut as a bun. It lays in a churro instead of a meat frank, but this year the churro is rolled in Oreo crumbs. The churro is then topped with frozen yogurt, whipped cream, strawberry topping, chocolate sauce and another round of Oreo crumbs.

This dog is not for the light of heart. It is smallish, but I could not finish the original Churro Dog when I had it a few years ago. It is a ten megaton sugar bomb that is not for anyone that doesn't want to finish the game in tight pants. However, if you are willing to run a couple of marathons to work it off, then by all means wolf one down guilt free. One more slowly...brain freeze at the ballpark is not fun.
