The world is full of unlikely pairings. Do they all work? No, not always. But let's take a moment to appreciate the people who are pioneering new foods, testing the limits of our taste buds, and asking that almighty question, "What if this was a thing?"

I'm looking at you, pickle pizza, and at you, Orange Vanilla Coca-Cola. And yes, even you, KFC Cheetos Chicken Sandwich. These are the foods that, on paper, don't exactly sound appetizing. But in real life, people can't get enough of them.

So, looking back on some of these more questionable food combinations or experiments that people genuinely seem to really enjoy, is taco-flavored coffee really that crazy?

Yeah, it is, but I think we should all at least give it a chance.

Tacos are pretty incredible on their own, and nothing beats a hot cup of coffee in the wee hours of the morning. So could it really be so terrible to see these two things be combined into one curious but potentially delicious new beverage?

Another admitted it's an acquired taste, while someone else said one brew had their entire house smelling like delicious ground beef sizzling in a pan with taco seasoning. Unsurprisingly, they gave it five stars.
