A local ice cream shop is creating a special treat, but it will only be available this Thursday.

October 4 has been designated as National Taco Day. While many are wondering why there needs to be a special day to celebrate one of the greatest foods of all time, others are criticizing the missed opportunity of not planning the celebration on  "Taco Tuesday."

Regardless of your thoughts about National Taco Day, there's one reason you'll want to mark the date on your calendar. Cold Stone Creamery has announced that they are releasing a special treat that will only be available on the special holiday.

According to a post on their Facebook page, Waffle Tacos will be on sale at all Cold Stone Creamery locations this Thursday. And the ice cream concoction looks exactly like it sounds.

Picture a waffle cone shaped into the shape of a taco shell, and then filled with your choice of ice cream and toppings. That's exactly what Cold Stone Creamery will be whipping up for their customers on Thursday. Think of it as the Choco-Taco on steroids.

If you want to try this extremely limited-release dessert, you can only do it this Thursday. After that, the store will no longer be offering ice cream tacos.  You can visit either of the Hudson Valley's two Cold Stone Creamery locations on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie, across from the Galleria Mall or the store on Merritt Blvd in Fishkill.
