Chipotle reveals new dessert
Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. has finally revealed one of the desserts it has been developing in recent months in a bid to reinvigorate sales: Buñuelos.
Speaking during the company’s earnings call on Tuesday, CEO Steve Ells said Chipotle is working on two desserts and plans to start testing them later this month.
One of the desserts is Buñuelos, a traditional Mexican sweet of fried tortilla strips with honey, cinnamon and sugar, served with an apple caramel butter dipping sauce.
“Buñuelos are simple to make using our existing equipment and require us to add just a few additional ingredients,” Ells said.
