The Best Choco Tacos on Instagram

This nostalgic treat is making a homemade comeback

In honor of the Olympics, this month we're bringing you gold medal coverage of The Best of the Best.

Back in the 80s, someone had the brilliant idea to fill a taco-shaped waffle with ice cream, creating arguably the best example of fusion cuisine out there. Call it a stretch, but when you think about it, a Choco Taco is a distant cousin of mole, only frozen. Thirty years later, bloggers and restaurants around the country are showing their love for the old-school ice cream truck staple.

Cue taco emoji: Here are the choco tacos that are taking over Instagram, from shells filled with horchata ice cream then dunked into Mexican chocolate to a vegan version of the summertime favorite.
