I give you the Con-chamacos, which (please bear with me) is a wonderful play on words to show a delicious concha (a Mexican morning bun, per The New York Times) that comes with kids (i.e. chamacos.) Thus, the con (with) chamacos (kids) get it?
Plus, is only $12 pesitos!

I don’t know about you, but when I think of Disney, I think of a ton of things before thinking Mexican sweet bread. But the house of Mickey Mouse is proudly peddling the $30 Minnie Mouse Concha Ears, which can be found –where else?– inside the Mexico Pavillion at Plaza de los Amigos.
The Concha Ears are apparently very popular among little Mexicans, because of the whole be-proud-of-where-you-come-from-thing. Alas, on closer inspection, these so-called conchas have been assembled in China –as pretty much anything we consume these days.
Speaking of Mexico and the seriousness of COVID-19, a bakery in Iztapalapa, Mexico has come up with a coronavirus-like sweet bread, which they’re calling –what else?– the conchavirus. According to a very reliable source (i.e. a commenter on my Instagram feed) the genius behind this thing is Panificadora Juanito, a 30-year-old establishment which prides itself of using all natural ingredients.
Oh, did I mention the conchavirus is only $6.50 pesos? That’s… practically USD 25 cents.
