A beloved summer treat may have seen its last days.
The Choco Taco, the taco-shaped ice cream snack made by Klondike, is on the decline after nearly 40 years as the company strives to make other products available.
“Over the past two years, we have experienced an unprecedented spike in demand across our portfolio and have had to make very difficult decisions to ensure the availability of our entire portfolio nationwide,” the company said in a statement on its website. . “A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes have to discontinue products, even a much-loved item like Choco Taco.”
Just last week, Klondike, a division of Good Humor-Breyers, which is itself owned by food conglomerate Unilever, said that single-count Choco Tacos would still be available at ice cream trucks and convenience stores nationwide.
It was not immediately clear why the company changed course. A Unilever spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
