Celebrate tacos and Mexican cuisine by wrapping up in a tortilla blanket

If you’re as crazy about tacos as most Mexicans you can now take the craze a step further and wrap yourself up in a tortilla.

A microfiber blanket that is one and a half meters in diameter and looks exactly like a flour tortilla has proved popular on Amazon, where it sells for 1,293 pesos plus 400 pesos for shipping (US $88).

“Do you love Mexican food so much you want to reincarnate yourself as a giant burrito?” reads the product description. “With this giant tortilla blanket you can become a taco, quesadilla, tostada, enchilada, burrito, taquito or use your imagination.”
