Months after Chipotle first announced plans to add dessert to its menu, the food chain has finally revealed what dessert they plan to release and when we can expect to get our hands on it.
According to Business Insider, Chipotle will begin serving buñuelos — a Mexican dessert that consists of fried tortillas tossed in sugar, cinnamon, and honey — alongside an apple caramel dipping sauce at select locations starting next month. Business Insider goes on to report that the dessert will be Chipotle’s first new menu item since the company began offering chorizo last October, and easily one of the company’s most drastic “changes” to its offerings over the past 20 years.
However, as Teen Vogue points out, Chipotle’s choice of dessert isn’t too surprising: In fact, the company’s CMO Mark Crumpacker gave a little hint at what was to come during a conference in January.
“It only adds one ingredient not already found in our restaurants, it’s easy to prepare, and it’s delicious,” he said.
Presumably, if Chipotle’s test goes well, they’ll begin rolling out buñuelos at restaurants nationwide soon after — so if your local store doesn’t have it next month, just sit tight.
