“Dear step-planDisney (Step)Moms: Can you use a churro as a straw?” – Universal Orlando Resort


Hi Universal Orlando Resort, thanks for asking.

We’ve actually tested this in our totally unique, and certainly not copied, Uncle Walt’s Insider Food Blog. And yes, yes you can. 


Uh, Walt, we kept telling you, that wasn’t a churro.



That explains the lack of cinnamon-sugar flavored fried dough.


Hello Mr. Resort. It’s not often we have a theme park writing us! (Well, other than those Cease & Desist letters from Disney. We have tons of those!)

In answer to your question, it may be theoretically possible, but as a practical matter, it’s too tempting to bite into the churro instead of sucking up whatever beverage you’re enjoying. Stick to eating regular straws.


You could, but should you? I have an Aussie friend, and she says the most Australian thing you can do is called a “Tim Tam Slam”, where you take a Tim Tam (which is a sort of chocolate cookie), bite the corners off, and then drink a beverage through it. Not milk.

Tim Tams are actually really good.

But, if you’ve got a really good cookie, why would you want to ruin it with the taste of whatever beverage? Now, if it was milk I could understand, because who doesn’t love cookies and milk? But other beverages? No thanks. I’ll just eat my cookies.

What beverage could you possibly drink through a churro that would complement its delicious cinnamon sugar flavor? Maybe rumchata? Or caramel sauce? Maybe. But I still say just eat the churro on its own, and use an actual straw for beverages. (Not paper straws. Those things are the worst.)  


For what it’s worth, paper straws are more edible than the plastic ones. They just suck at, you know, being straws.


Just don’t go to Universal Studios Orlando. There are too many people there without you.


Hi there, Uni. Can I call you Uni? You may not remember me, but I feel we were once close enough that I can call you that comfortably.

So the answer to your question, it depends on the drink. I suggest rum.
