Indulgent Churro-Dipped Milkshakes

Del Taco Has Added a Churro Dipper Shake to Its Menu

— May 25, 2018 — Lifestyle

This sugary beverage combines the goodness of a milkshake with a crispy, cinnamon churro, making for a uniquely topped treat that's sure to satisfy anyone's appetite. The milkshake features a vanilla base with a chocolate syrup swirl and according to the brand, the churro's "ridges are the perfect tool for collecting and savoring the leftover chocolate sauce and ice cream that the straw couldn’t quite get.”

This particular offering arrives as part of Del Taco's new Late Night Bites Menu but is sure to offer a sugar rush that'll wake anyone up.
