This churro is shockingly cute. We've seen some pretty amazing churros before—churro ice cream bowls, hot dog-style churros—but none of them have been quite this adorable. Whether you're an avid player of Pokémon Go who's caught all 142 Pokémon or Pikachu's familiar face just brings you back to your childhood, these Pikachu churros, dubbed the Pikachurro, are sure to give you all the good feels.

The Pikachurro is the creation of The Loop, a shop specializing in handcrafted churros located in Westminster, California, about 45 minutes outside of Los Angeles. Comprised of a loop of churro for the outline of the head, red sprinkle stars arranged to create Pikachu's little red cheek dots, and stumps of churro blackened with cookie crumbs to show Pikachu's ear/antenna things, the Pikachurro is pretty instantly recognized as Ash's favorite companion. Served in a cup of ice cream, this churro creation is about as rich as Niantic, Inc. is getting off of Pokémon Go.

Of course, even before they turned their churro loops into this adorable electric mouse, Loop Churros were already pretty incredible. They served their fried bits of deliciousness topped with caramel popcorn, dipped in tiramisu, and glazed with matcha frosting and sprinkled with Fruity Pebbles.


The Loop opened less than two months ago. You can be sure they've got more clever deliciousness in store for us in the future. To keep up with their churro creations, you can follow The Loop on Instagram.
