Combining two food elements is becoming increasingly popular, and the donut hybrid even more so. The latest is a taco donut mashup. The unusual mix of sweet and savory elements was made possible using a 3D printer.
The donuts are made using biscuit dough and filled with beef. They are then sealed and deep fried, as you would with other donuts. Instead of covering them with frosting, however, you top the donut hybrid with sour cream, hot sauce, guacamole and cilantro. Of course, you could also change things up by adding your own favorite taco ingredients.
This particular taco donut was made by Redditor barryabrams, who created a blueprint of the food item 13 years ago.
