In other combo food news, Made by Marcus has taken the idea of a taco and turned it into a dessert. The ice cream shop recently debuted its Helado Tacos, which are ice cream tacos that are only available on Tuesdays. The ice cream taco flavour changes monthly, but last month’s (March) featured banana soft serve, caramel dip and chocolate coated pretzel toffee in a waffle cone shell.
