Choco Taco discontinues from Market after nearly 4 decades
According to Klondike, the Choco Taco ice cream delight has been discontinued after nearly 40 years of service to customers.
According to a Klondike official, the treat was discontinued in July due to an increase in demand for other Klondike products during the previous two years.
According to Klondike on Twitter, the Choco Taco has been discontinued in 1ct and 4ct boxes after a user requested confirmation of the news.
“Over the past 2 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,” the business stated.
In a response to a dissatisfied user, Klondike suggested that the consumer try one of their other confections.
“A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco. We know this may be very disappointing, and hope you’ll try our other delicious frozen treats!” According to the firm,
Klondike responded to a commenter on Twitter by writing, “We know Choco Taco is a huge fan favorite and a top seller for our out-of-home business, so this is particularly painful. We’re working hard to find a way to bring Choco Taco back to ice cream trucks in the coming years.”
Vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between two taco-shaped waffle cones, one of which is drizzled with milk chocolate and sprinkled with peanuts to make the Choco Taco.
Choco Taco was the brainchild of Alan Drazen, a 1983 employee of Jack and Jill Ice Cream, who came up with the concept. Prior to Unilever’s purchase of the company in 1993, the product was exclusively available on ice cream trucks. After that, it was renamed Klondike instead of Jack and Jill.
Taco Bell used to sell a dessert in the style of a taco; however, the item was removed off the menu in 2015. To honour Klondike’s 100th anniversary, Taco Bell and Klondike teamed up to bring back the Choco Taco to 20 of the fast food restaurant’s locations for a short period.
