‘Donut’ mess with us, Lidl’s giant churros are finally back in stores and giving us a sweet treat to write home about. Yes, they look a bit like McCain oven fries, but believe me, Lidl’s giant churros are much better than crinkle chips.
For anyone who doesn’t know, the churro is similar to a donut. Usually made with choux, the fried-dough pastry is a favourite of Spain, Portugal, and local fairs around the United Kingdom. A ride on the waltzers just isn’t complete without munching on a churro.
Hoping to cash in on the UK’s recent run of good weather, the bargain high street supermarket is embracing Spanish Week with its very own trip to the Costa Del Sol — sangria not included.
Costing just £1.19 for a 500g bag, the pre-cooked churros are ready in just 15 minutes. Simply stick them in the microwave and enjoy the taste sensation before you know it.
These sugar-coated lovelies sadly don’t come with chocolate dipping sauce, but you can dunk them in whatever you want. Personally, I’m planning on slathering them with Biscoff spread.
