The dearly beloved chocolate-dipped, taco-shaped ice cream cone known as the Choco Taco is gone. Forever.
A Klondike product, the Choco Taco was originally distributed in the early 1980's, making it over 40 years old. Known for its unique taco shape, that allows for the perfect bite with every bite, the Choco Taco is considered a "cult favorite". Not widely available in stores, the Choco Taco could mostly be found on ice cream trucks (until those became a thing of the past). And for a short period of time, Taco Bell did offer the beloved chocolate covered taco. However, like most things post-pandemic, the Choco Taco has been experiencing low profits.
Klondike had this to say about the discontinuation:
"Over the past 2 years, we... have had to make very tough decisions... We know this may be very disappointing."
All is not completely lost (yet), as you can still possibly find Choco Tacos as retailers sell through their remaining inventory.
