Choco Taco Discontinued After 40 Years Leaves Twitter Fans Devastated

People on Twitter have revealed their devastation that the ice cream ‘Choco Taco’ has been discontinued after 40 years.

People confirmed the desert giant is planning to discontinue the sweet treat after first hitting the shelves almost four decades after demand declined.

The taco-shaped desert is made up of vanilla ice cream encased in a waffle cone, partially covered with milk chocolate and topped with peanuts, and according to NPR, was first coined by Alan Drazen in 1983.

The company even once partnered with Taco Bell, for a limited time, in February this year to celebrate Klondike’s 100th anniversary.

But, according to Klondike, over the last couple of years, other products have become more popular than the Chaco Taco.

The company told CNN: ‘Over the past two years, we have experienced an unprecedented spike in demand across our portfolio and have had to make very tough decisions to ensure availability of our full portfolio nationwide, we know this may be very disappointing.’

However, for people still wanting to get hold of them, fear not, the representative added it may be still possible to get on as ‘sellers run through their inventory’.

Fans devastated Choco Taco Discontinued

Since the news broke that the frozen dessert would no longer be hitting the shelves in the future fans have taken to Twitter to share their disappointment.

Many users said they are ‘devastated’ hearing the news, saying the ice cream is a ‘classic’ and some even called it a ‘tragedy’ it’ll be discontinued.

Others were honest they hadn’t actually had one of the treats in a while but were devastated nonetheless.

Another Twitter user even offered to buy the rights to the ice cream in order to ‘keep it from melting away from future generations’ childhoods’.
