50 Centavos. or about 6 cents USA. I believe they are deep fried. They are full of manjar. It is a cream made from sweetened condensed milk. They cook the milk over a warm fire until it turns into carmel. The cream is about the same color as the Churros or a little more brown. Manjar is in everything. One traveller wrote: Everywhere I go I ask what different pasteries are, then I say "What's in it?" The common answer is "Manjar". Now I just assume everything has manjar in it and that's fine if you like the taste of carmel.
