News – “What Is A “Tacro”? The Taco-Croissant Mash-Up Is Blowing Up Instagram Feeds In San Francisco” Food mash-ups are the trend that won’t die. While some are highly questionable (I’m looking at you, flagels), others are pure genius. I’m talking about the latest and greatest taco-croissant mash-up that recently made its debut, affectionately known as the tacro, according to Cosmopolitan. The tacro comes to us from a San Francisco bakery called Vive La Tarte. They introduced the mash-up at the opening of their second location this month. Per BuzzFeed, tacros are $12 a pop. Pricey for a croissant with taco fillings? Maybe. But wait until you see these bad boys. They’re stuffed to the brim with taco-y goodness, not to mention they’re incredibly photogenic. I’m not trying to be superficial, but let’s be honest: that’s the only reason most people would buy a tacro in the first place. In this case, it’s perfectly acceptable to judge a taco by its cover.

Cosmopolitan reports you can currently choose from three different kinds (or just buy all of them, which would be my plan): pulled pork, chile chicken with avocado, and barbecued jackfruit for our meat-free friends. A spokesperson told BuzzFeed a breakfast tacro may even happen in the future. In the meantime, you have these three choices, which are topped with sliced radishes and pickled onions, and come with green avocado salsa and red salsa.

Without further ado, the tacro. Here’s a breathtaking capture from San Francisco-based food blogger @anctheory.

My first thought when I saw this was to become outraged and yell out “I DONT LIKE CHANGE!!” 

but then I soon realized how much I love a good croissant and I can eat tacos literally every single day sooooo, yea I would give this a try

    I am conflicted by this. I love the flavors of tacos and croissants but that buttery goodness getting lost amongst the cumin and chili powder? I just don’t know.

      I had that same feeling but ….there’s still a small chance that it’s fucking delicious and I think that small chance might be worth the risk haha
