You DON'T Have to Go To Disneyland For a Good Churro!!! #chewyinfluencer

My Mommys go to Disneyland a lot. By a lot I mean more than twice a year. We live in NORCAL and THE LAND OF MOUSE is in SOCAL. So it takes a bit of doing to get there. Nonetheless, they manage to get there multiple times and for multiple days. It is, as my Mommy #2 put it, their HAPPY place.

One thing they always eat when at Disneyland is the CHURRO. It is well known that Disney Churros are among the best. My Mommys tell me this is because

  • They are crunchy with tender interiors
  • They are light but not too light
  • They are sweet but not cloyingly so (?)
  • They are always fresh (delivered frozen to the cart and warmed up onsite)

No one, THEY say, does it better. They even have CHOCOLATE ones now. Sounds good.

So when the Chewy.com newsletter came out and CHURROS were on the list, well Molly and I decided we HAD to try them.

Yaky Churros are really a clever take on YAK chews. Unlike Yak Chews, they are not as dense nor do they provide much chewing time. I can finish mine in less than 5 minutes (that's better than most chews which I finish before Mommy closes the bag). Molly took about 20 minutes but she doesn't have as much chewing power.

Despite the lack of chewing time, though, these are seriously GOOD EATIN' of the TREAT VARIETY.

 Here's some insight into what you are getting when you bite into a YAKY CHURRO -
  • Himalayan cheese flavor
  • No lactose, grains or gluten
  • Softer texture that’s easier dogs to chew . . . I'll say!
  • Natural enzymes that help remove plaque from your dog's teeth (I do wonder if they work whether or not the DOG IN QUESTION actually chews the treat?)
  • A unique shape that gets to those hard to reach places between teeth - it's GROOVY!

The ingredients are pretty self explanatory, I think
Potato Starch, Cheese (Pasteurized Processed Skimmed Milk, Salt, Lime Juice) Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Vegetable Glycerin.

A couple of things Mommy #2 really likes about the CHURROS is they are pliable enough for her to cut into two pieces for Molly and Me. They are also only 122 calories for each one so HALF of one is. . . uh. . . HALF the calories. It makes her happy to know these things as she is keeper of the svelte pug thing.

We shared a couple of Churros with our house guests, Pablo and Moose and guess what? Well, I'll let them tell you in their own words

                nous aimons beaucoup les collations
They speak French. . . I forgot to tell you. What they are saying is they LIKE the SNACKS very much,

We highly recommend the YAKY CHURRO for a tasty treat. And it comes in two other flavors, Vegetable and Fish. I am pretty sure FROM A PUG'S point of view these CHURROS can give Disneyland's Churros a run for their money. And in truth, at Chewy.com prices, Yaky Churros are A LOT cheaper.

**Chewy.com provided us with a bag of Yaky Churros free of charge and for the purpose of trying them and developing an opinion of them. They in no way paid us for the review or told us what to say. All opinions on A Bowl of Noodles is ours alone.
