Spaghetti Tacos Sweep The Nation

Spaghetti Tacos Sweep The Nation


What started off as a quick joke in an episode of iCarly has turned into the food of choice for many pre-teens.

“It was just a little joke I came up with for one episode. Then it turned into a running joke. And now it’s this thing people actually do,” said Dan Schneider, the creator of iCarly.

Moms of picky eaters don’t mind the trend all that much, as it gets their kids excited about eating. However, many nutritionists warn that the trend is not so great, as spaghetti tacos have almost no nutritional value.

The iCarly writers should create an episode where the characters eat whole-wheat spaghetti tacos with spinach and avocado on top!
