Disney’s New Elote Dog Gets Mixed Reviews But What Exactly Is It
Disney Land is no stranger when it comes to offering Latino-inspired foods. From actual elote to tres leches, paletas with chamoy, flan, and margaritas – Disney has definitely been after the Latino market.
Sometimes their creations hit the mark and sometimes they’re total duds but this ‘elote dog’ looks to have a lot of potential.
Disney fans are all about the food when visiting the park, and this new addition is sure to be another crowd pleaser. I mean, look at this thing!
Pretty much every buzzy food item that I’ve come across at Disney Land I’ve become obsessed with. From the Cheshire Cat Tails and Dole Whip Floats to Birthday Cake Milkshakes and Cinderella Castle Cupcakes, nothing has ever disappointed.
And if you’re like me, you probably have several Disney snacks archived in your Instagram folder at all times. So when I discovered the existence of this massive elote dog, I had to look into it.
I mean there’s esquites (ufff!) slathered on a hot dog. What’s not to love?!
But I haven’t tried it yet so we have to go with what the gente are saying. And reviews have ranged from omg que rico…
One user on Instagram said: “We’ve read several less than thrilling reviews about this specialty item, but we actually enjoyed it! ???? Everyone has different tastes, so don’t be discouraged if this looks good to you. Just make sure you have a fork and knife on hand and LOTS of napkins!”
To a not so flattering…meh.
Another not so positive review said: “Well, we’re sad to say…it was bad ???? It was so salty we couldn’t even finish it. We‘re super bummed about it and we’re hoping maybe we just got a bad one??? We got it right before the park closed so maybe it was just off it’s game.”
Even though there are mix reviews, I am definitely going to give this thing a try.
I mean the giant elote dog is covered in esquites, mayo, cotija, chili, and limon.
Judging by the looks of it, this thing requires lots of preparation (i.e., plenty of napkins and utensils) and potentially another human to help you finish it.
Though I have to admit, I’m surprised it took Disneyland this long to add something like this to their menu.
I mean it’s pretty obvious that many park residents have long been a fan of elote. It was only a matter of time until they took to esquites on a hot dog.
This isn’t the first Latino inspired things that Disney Land has offered.
Just a few months ago the park was selling Micky Mouse conchas. Not everyone was happy about it, including many of the parks Latino vendors.
After the release of “Coco,” the park started selling the most adorable tres leches parfait!
If this parfait is as good as the movie was, I better be in actual tears.
The park even sells fresa-flavored churros!
Churros are already legit amazing and a theme park stape but Disney Land takes it to the next level with this strawberry flavored churro. Yas!
So what do you think, will you be giving this new ‘elote dog’ a try?
