Klondike Discontinues Choco Taco After Almost 40 Years

The Choco Taco was, we thought, a fan favorite.

Goodbye, Choco Taco, we hardly knew ye. Or we didn’t knew ye for nearly long enough, if you ask some fans of the ice cream invention that featured a cone for a shell and was covered with chocolate and peanuts.

Instead, Klondike is discounting the dessert after a nearly 40-year run. The company confirmed the decision to PEOPLE.

“According to a rep for Klondike, which is owned by Unilever, the Choco Taco was entirely discontinued in July due to an unprecedented spike in demand for different Klondike products over the past two years,” wrote PEOPLE’s Antonia DeBianchi.

Needless to say, this news has not gone over well with the sweet-toothed public.

“Ugh there are 37 different flavors of Klondike bars. Get rid of one of those and keep the choco taco,” wrote one Twitter user. “No one wants the chocolate mint flavored klondike.”

Even former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky weighed in. “WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS?” he demanded to know of Klondike’s decision.

But hey, there is hope. Taco Bell once sold Choco Tacos as part of a marketing scheme with Klondike. And Taco Bell recently buckled to a very public outcry over its decision to dump the Mexican Pizza.

It brought back the Mexican Pizza and maybe similar howling from consumers can do the same for the Choco Taco. If not, hey, there’s always that lousy chocolate mint thing offered by Klondike that no one likes.
