Philadelphia, PA - Many companies trimmed their portfolios during the pandemic, but even the newest products can have a loyal following. After nearly four decades, Klondike has discontinued the popular Choco Taco. This taco-shaped frozen treat was made with light vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone shaped like a taco, partially covered in milk chocolate, and topped with peanuts. The company confirmed the news through a tweet.
Klondike Has Discontinued the Choco Taco
The Choco Taco was invented in 1983 by Alan Drazen. It was distributed to ice cream trucks until 1993 when Unilever acquired Jack and Jill Ice Cream. The brand was rebranded to Klondike. Until 2015, Choco Tacos were sold at Taco Bell, but the tacos were discontinued from the menu earlier this year. This announcement was met with mixed reviews from fans.
After discovering the dismal fate of Choco Taco, many fans are hoping the dessert will return to Taco Bell menus. The brand even teamed up with the company behind the popular chocolate ice cream. While we wait for a reintroduction of the Choco Taco, fans are stocking up. They are even making their own versions, hoping that the chocolaty taco will soon come back.
