White Sox: Ranking the churro flavors at Guaranteed Rate Field

The Chicago White Sox has a great on-field product right now. After a decade or more of being a bad baseball team, they are finally good with a very bright future ahead as well. However, one thing that has always remained awesome is the food at Guaranteed Rate Field. Going to the ballpark to watch this team is fun on its own so adding the delicious food makes it even better.

One of the great parts of the stadium’s food selection is the churros. There are stands scattered throughout every level that sells these fried pastries and they are delicious. There are five flavors to choose from and they are all mind-numbingly good.

Each churro flavor has its own time and place. There are certain ones that fill a void if the team is losing and some taste better when they are winning. However, at the end of the day, they are all great.

With that in mind, it is fair to rank the five flavors offered at Guaranteed Rate Field so that people know which ones are the best. This is my personal power rankings of the flavors after a taste test conducted during the final week of the regular season and the two playoff games:

1. Caramel

2. Vanilla

3. Chocolate

4. Strawberry

5. Plain

Selecting the right churro is extremely important at a Chicago White Sox game.

You never want to send a bad message by choosing the wrong churro flavor at the wrong time. Certain flavors run out as the game goes on as well so you need to be strategic with your selections depending on the time of the game.

As you can see, the flavored churros are all superior to the plain churro. There is nothing wrong with some plain action every now and again (it is also usually the last one to sell out) but having some variety is always nice in life.

Going in, as a minor caramel fan, it was expected that the caramel churro would be near the bottom. That is why we play the games, though, folks. The caramel one ended up being the tastiest as the warm filling went so well with the cinnamon and sugar on the outside. It is one of the three best dessert offerings at the stadium.

I was also worried that the strawberry filling wouldn’t go too well with a churro but it certainly did. I would have never thought I’d rather that over a plain but here we are. With Vanilla and Chocolate as slightly superior fillings, it is a nice/safe selection of churros at the best ballpark in the land.

There is a lockout across Major League Baseball right now but few things could keep me from being excited about the next time I get to eat at Guaranteed Rate Field. Hopefully, baseball is back on time so that everybody can get a good look at these delicious churros and challenge my rankings of them.
