Churros have been around since the dawn of days, and yet the mystery remains of where this sugary treat was first developed. Enjoyed by many, the traditional churro remains a favorite to Amusement Park guests, Costco shoppers, and to those who love the thrills at Fairs across the County.
A simple yet satisfying snack, it doesn’t take much to make a Churro. In fact, with the perfect dough shaped into the long straight cylinder, dipped and fried into hot oil, and then rolled in sugar and cinnamon is all it really takes to make a churro.
However, in recent years, there has been a few innovations to how churros are served, and establishments are getting creative and adding their own variations to serve and pair along with the traditional churros:
Ice Cream with Churros
Chocolate covered Churros
Churros covered with nuts, cereal, sprinkles, or color dyed sugar
But the new twist on traditional churros that’s becoming a favorite to many are the Filled Churros.

Lucero Bakery and their authentic Filled Churros

Delighting customers with their homemade churros filled with Cajeta (goat’s milk), Guava, or Chocolate, it’s no wonder that their filled churros are being bought by the dozen. And if you live in or near Los Angeles, then you’re in for a treat!
