This is brilliant. No more taco neck.

That's ... that's actually a really good idea.

I remember an interesting documentary a long time ago following the process of developing a new snack food product where something very much like this was one of the early prototypes. They tested it and everyone found it amazingly messy to eat, with almost no way to avoid food ending up on you. After several more design iterations they ended up with Combos.

That last bite at the end would be a greasy ball of meat juice, grease, and more grease. Close but no cigar with this idea.

I think the actual outcome would be worse than that: grease/juice would, rather than staying in the bottom of the cone, leak out of it.

Smart filling would solve this. More lettuce at the bottom. Also - ground turkey is far far less greasy and pretty awesome as taco filling.

Moot point. If the cone is anything like a regular taco shell it will split right down the middle when you take the first bite.

This is the best idea EVAR.

It probably won't be long until we see this item on the Taco Bell menu.

Street vendors here in Austin have already beaten this guy to the punch.

I give you the Mighty Cone.

When you realize your diet is largely crap, but could be made crappier if you could only find a way to wrap more useless calories, devoid of any nutritional value, around a product already lacking nutritional value, to make it easier to haul up to the end of your neck and cram into your chew hole, America Happens.

Incidentally, What the hell is up with Fark's recent fixation on tacos. I mean, I always knew in terms of culture we were going down to brown town, but it does seem way more frequent of late.

/farking Mayans.

Looks like we DDoS'd them.

Is this a new product in one of the few fields of innovation the US still excels in - new and improved ways of getting pies into pie holes?

I dunnno. ground turkey is fairly healthy, just replace the Iceberg lettuce with Romaine or baby spinach and I'm all in

Good point. There are some fairly healthy and tasty taco recipes out there. Rarely at most eat out joints thought. And honestly, I'd rather be moderate and eat one or two regular old lardies from the hole in the wall taqueria, than a healthied up one, or from any fast food joint.

Oh yeah...Jeez, I bet you'd like yours with toasted back bacon too, eh?

Interestingly, you could call it "The Taco Bell". As opposed to "The Stuffed Uterus".

Yep, just remove those pesky intestinal parasites and you have yourself a tacone.

Since its not made out of dorito, this takes a back seat to other recent taco advances.

Eh. Just powder the inside of the cone with corn starch (or more likely, some sort of cheap polymer substitute) to trap & solidify the liquids as they settle. Taco gravy!
