This Classic Klondike Ice Cream Staple Has Been Discontinued

A Klondike Choco Taco

We hate to be the bearer of bad news for ice cream lovers, but unfortunately, there’s been a sad occurrence in the dessert world. A famed Klondike ice cream staple has been discontinued.

The Klondike Choco Taco is no more, and while sure, it’s the iconic Klondike bar, this ice cream truck staple is beloved by thousands.

People confirmed with the brand that the Choco Taco—which has been sold for 40 years—is officially off the menu. As for the reason why, the brand updated the Choco Taco’s product listing, explaining that Klondike has experienced an unprecedented demand for its other goods over the past two years. As such, the company has focused on those items and put the famous chocolate taco on the back burner.

Don’t worry. All hope isn’t lost. You can make your own Choco Taco. While they might not be exactly the same, there are plenty of recipes available on YouTube. This option from Ashlee Marie even has a chocolate shell for a little bit more chocolate flavor!

You'll need a waffle maker to craft your own Choco Taco.

While you might be sad to learn of the Choco Taco’s demise, there are plenty of other ice cream desserts out there. When you’re really craving the famous ice cream-filled chocolate taco, you can always make one yourself.
