Are you ready for the tacro?

It’s been a while since we’ve had a strange and wonderful food hybrid.

After the mass mania caused by the cronut, others have tried to smush croissants into other formats with the conut, the cruffin, and, of course, the sushi croissant. But none have really taken off.

The tacro might be the next big star of the pastry hybrid game.

As you may have guessed from the portmanteau, a tacro is a taco made with a croissant taco shell.

The creation of Vive Le Tarte bakery in San Francisco, the tacro is made up of a flaky croissant shell with a hint of crunch, filled with your choice of chile chicken with avocado, pulled pork, or barbecued jackfruit, and then topped with sliced radishes, pickled onions, avocado salsa, and red salsa.

Vive Le Tarte plans to launch breakfast-y fillings soon, so you can enjoy a tacro first thing in the morning without feeling weird about it.

As with all hybrid food things, it’s clearly meant for Instagram.

But we do have concerns over just how messy the tacro would be to eat.

A taco is hard enough. Fillings spill out, your hands get covered in salsa, and you have to try to shove the whole thing in your mouth to prevent a total collapse.

Croissants, meanwhile, are impossible to eat with any grace. Think of all the flakes that end up on your jeans when you try to eat a croissant on the tube. Think of how much gets in your hair.

To combine the two sounds like an eating disaster. We don’t care how cute a photo holding the tacro aloft next to a colourful wall may be – we wouldn’t recommend having this hybrid as a meal you can eat on the move.

No, no. Put on a bib. Grab a plate. Sit down, and accept that you are not going to look great while eating this thing.

Clearly the mess hasn’t put people off though.

The tacros are available in a limited supply each day, and already Vive Le Tarte reports selling out within two hours.

If you fancy giving them a go, you’ll need to head over to San Francisco.

Or you have your own makeshift version by rolling a croissant so it’s a flat shell and filling it with meat. Sounds like a great way to spend your weekend.
