It’s a sad day for people who enjoy eating ice cream in taco form.
Klondike has discounted the iconic Choco Taco – a waffle cone shaped like a tortilla, filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with various chocolates and nuts.
The ice cream giant has responded to a frustrated Twitter user who heard rumors on social media that the item would be set aside.
“Unfortunately, Choco Taco has been discontinued in 1-carat and 4-carat packages,” Klondike confirmed Monday.
“The necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that sometimes we have to discontinue products, even beloved items like Choco Taco,” they told another unhappy fan in a separate tweet.
“We know this can be very disappointing, and we hope you’ll try our other delicious frozen desserts,” she offered a link to the Klondike website.
Another fan begged to know “what…just what are you thinking of stopping chokotaku”.
“Over the past two years, we have seen an unprecedented rise in demand across our portfolio and have had to make very difficult decisions to ensure that our entire portfolio is available nationwide,” Klondike replied.
But don’t lose hope yet. The brand continued to respond to the bad news on Twitter, saying Choco Taco may be back in the future.
“We know Choco Taco is a fan favorite and a bestseller for our out-of-home business, so this is especially painful.” Wrote. “We’re working hard to find a way to bring Choco Taco back into ice cream trucks in the coming years.”
Twitter is still having a hard time losing the loved one.
A fan “DearUnilever – I’d like to buy the rights to your Choco Taco and keep it from melting away from the childhood of posterity” He said.
“Why, Choco Taco was perfect,” Else begged. “This is just another step for the company that has nothing to do with the operation.”
