The Choco Taco, which officially came out of store freezers in July, it was a frozen treat that featured a taco shaped waffle cone filled with vanilla ice cream and partially covered in milk chocolate and topped with peanuts.
Late last month, a representative for Klondike, which is owned by parent company Unilever, announced that production of the Choco Taco would be discontinued. due to an increase in demand for other products in the last two years.
“Unfortunately, the Choco Taco has been discontinued in 1 and 4ct packages,” Klondike wrote on Twitter last month.

Klondike encouraged Choco Taco fans to try their other frozen treats.
“A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that sometimes we must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco. We know this can be very disappointingand we hope you will try our other delicious frozen treats!” the company wrote.
The Choco Taco was created by Alan Drazen in Philadelphia in 1983referring to it as the “most beloved and innovative novelty in all of American ice cream,” according to an article published in Eater in 2016.
