The universally beloved Choco Taco is no longer.
Klondike, the maker of the ice cream treat, shared the devastating news earlier this week. According to a company representative, the Choco Taco was discontinued this month due to a demand for other Klondike products over the past two years.
“Over the past 2 years, we have experienced an unprecedented spike in demand across our portfolio and have had to make very tough decisions to ensure availability of our full portfolio nationwide,” the company stated.
For those that have never been awarded the opportunity to eat a Choco Taco, it’s a frozen treat in the shape of a taco. The shell is an ice cream cone, it’s filled with vanilla ice cream, and topped with chocolate and peanuts.
To be fair, as much as I liked Choco Tacos as a kid I’ve never once bought them at a grocery store. They’re more of a treat you’d buy from an ice cream truck or maybe something you’d buy while at the beach or the pool.
Nevertheless, fans of the Choco Taco are heartbroken that the ice cream treat has been discontinued.

I am very upset about this Choco Taco thing. I haven't had a Choco Taco in at least a decade, but it was nice knowing it was there if I needed it.
