ESPN: Diamondbacks Offering Churro Dog

For the foodies:

The Arizona Diamondbacks will try to top the success of last year’s 18-inch bacon-and-cheese-stuffed corn dog by offering a dessert. Team president and CEO Derrick Hall told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the team’s star concession item this year will be a Churro Dog.

The Churro Dog is a warm cinnamon churro sitting inside a Long John chocolate-glazed donut, which is then topped with frozen yogurt, caramel and chocolate sauces. Its estimated calorie count is 1,117.

“We’ve found that desserts work really well in the heat we have here,” Hall said. So team chef Michael Snoke got together a focus group of eaters and tested out his Churro Dog idea, and it was immediately loved.

The item, which will be available at two stands on the main concourse at Chase Field, will cost $8.50.
.  .  .
Last year’s specialty, the D-Bat Dog, a huge corn dog that came with a side of fries, cost $25. Despite the price, the team sold 9,517 of them last year. The team will offer the item again this year, Hall said.

Did we get a Primate review on the D-Bat Dog?
