Twitter is Not Ready to Say Goodbye to the Klondike Choco Taco
Some Choco Tacos are already listing on eBay for $1,000 USD.
After almost 40 years in the market, Klondike‘s Choco Taco has been discontinued. The summertime ice cream treat was invented by an ice cream truck driver in 1983 and features a waffle cone shell with fudge ice cream, chocolate, and peanuts.
An official statement on Klondike’s page reads:
The Klondike Choco Taco has unfortunately been discontinued in both 1ct and 4ct pack sizes. 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 the availability of our full portfolio nationwide. A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco. We know this may be very disappointing. We hope you’ll try our other delicious frozen treats, including Klondike Cones, Shakes, Sandwiches, and of course, our signature Bar available nationwide.
40 years is a long time and with the decades comes several generations of fans who grew up with the Choco Taco. This has caused a number of stores to sell out with many stockpiling boxes of the taco-shaped ice cream treat. Some have even tried to take advantage of the situation by listing the discontinued Choco Taco for $1,000 USD.
There is hope for those troubled by the discontinuation of the Choco Taco, however, as Klondike has mentioned that the snack will make its way back into ice cream trucks in the coming years.
