    Exclamation Our experience with the worst churro of all time:

    So my girlfriend turns to me and says, "You know what? Every year I say I want a churro, and every year I end up not getting one!"

    Now we all know the joy and euphoria a churro can bring, so you can understand how we were excited for her decision to indulge in, and share with me, one of life's many great pleasures.

    So she skips merrily off to Mr. Churro Cart Man with her $4 and comes back with a funny look on her face and what seemed to be some kind of hard, brittle, sandstone-like shaft covered in cinnamon/sugar. "Well I paid $4 for it" she says as she takes the first bite.

    CRUNNNNNNNNNNCH!!!!!!!!!

    Now you may be thinking, "what, a crunch not unlike those cinnamon twists at Taco Bell?" No sir. I'm talking somewhere between overcooked bacon and old chalk mixed with the distinct grit one would associate with chewing sand.

    Like a trooper, she managed to survive, teeth intact, ingesting this entire culinary disaster which was slightly less disappointing than wasting the $4 that could have been spent on 2/3 of a slice of Spicy Pie.

    That said, I've always been impressed with the above-average quality of the festival food at Coachella, but this churro mishap was a complete disaster. We'll likely be sticking to Spicy Pie and Gyros from here on out thank you very much.

    Nah, now I have to buy another churro next year, to find out if all the Coachella churros are that gross (I certainly hope they're not...)

    indie, what day did you get yours? Ours was purchased Sunday, perhaps they just kept the same ones in the sun all three days.

    i felt bad for people buying churros because I used to work for that company that was selling the churros and I knew they were not good. plus everyone they hired to work at their stands looked really sketchy/dirty/unkept imo.

    Not bad luck, just bad churros. I decided to try one this year too and was greatly dissapointed. Thought maybe I just got a bad one so tried another on a different day. Same result. Verdict? 2010 churros=fail!

    So it wasn't just us, that's even more lame. I feel as if we've all been shafted. With churros.

    The churro I had from the stand by the main stage had the texture of a sun dried turd.

    i figured it out a while ago after many coachellas and many trips to disneyland. churros are only good when they are fresh.

    now i know churros arent fully prepared at the cart thing and im not sure what magical procedure a churro salesperson uses to prepare said churro, but somewhere in that process (re-heating them maybe?) a countdown begins. as the churro continues to sit in the churro cart it will begin its exponential decay towards extra crunchy/chewy suckyness


    bottom line, if you walk up to a churro cart and there are a ton of churros sitting in there its usually best to just walk away

    I also got a bad Churro on Saturday. Fucking depressing.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    I also had a tasty pretzel that I slathered in mustard... while my friend Harrisment and his wife chose the churro. They were not pleased, I was.

    I rocked a chicken Gyro burrito at that truck just outside the entrance on day 3. The guys taking my money were cool and I asked them their honest opinion of what they were about to sell me (they liked it). Took that sucker back to my hotel room, cracked a bottle of cold vino, and turned on some por... err Sportscenter! Really delish and recommended.

    I purchased one on Saturday that had a texture and taste actually less desirable than the mushrooms I was eating it with.

    Looked at the churros and passed. I'll go to Costco for a good one to make up for it though. Half the price, 4 times the size, and infinitely better than what everyone I talked to said about their Churrochella experiences.

    Yes, the churros were awful. They were rubbery. My sister bought me one on Friday night and I couldn't believe that I finished it. I bought another one Saturday hopeing and crossing my fingers that a different vendor had better tasting ones and ended up being disappointed AGAIN. Never again.

    YES. I bought one, took a bite, returned that motherfucker and got my $4 back. The people at the stand looked embarrassed as i told them the churro was bad. The people in line for the churros were hesitant about buying them after that.

    I've talked about giving a friendly gesture-like churro to captncrzy all year long around here if I were to see her at the fest,, and had I seen her and done that, I wouldn't have blamed her for knocking me over the head with it! That's saying something. One all weekend. That's not normal for me.

    Now, the pretzels? We had to wait for them to restock their supply, but it was worth it.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
