Spaghetti tacos

In the world of food descriptions, there's not too much of a difference between "I ate this when I was drunk" and "I ate this when I was 7."

A new obsession with spaghetti tacos covers both of those zones.

The fascination went mainstream when a New York Times article detailed the trend. Unsurprisingly, it consists of spaghetti inside a taco shell.

Disgusted? Blame Nickelodeon's "iCarly," the TV show widely credited as the source of the spaghetti taco's creation.

Given the hype, some foodies expect the creation will exceed the culinary boundaries of little kids and drunk college students. We'll have to wait and see.
