Your Beloved Choco Tacos Decided to Shut Down Permanently After Nearly 40 years: reports

The beloved Klondike product,  ice cream wrapped in a taco-shaped cone, has been discontinued. “Over the past 2 years, we have experienced an unprecedented increase in demand in our portfolio and have had to make some very difficult decisions to ensure the availability of our full portfolio. nationwide," a Klondike Brand representative told CNN Business in an email, adding "we know this can be very disappointing." 

You can still find Choco Tacos as vendors scour their inventory, the representative said.  During the pandemic, it has become common for businesses to shrink their portfolios to meet the demand for the most popular items. But even the less popular products have dedicated fans who are annoyed with the decision. One Twitter user said: “Choco Taco has dropped in price. "They always take the best from us," said another. Others punished Klondike for this act. Choco Taco has its roots in the early 1980s, according to a 2016 article in Eater magazine. At first, it was mainly offered through ice cream carts. Finally, Unilever, which now owns Klondike, has begun to distribute the product more widely.  Ice cream in a waffle with toppings is not so creative. But the ice cream in the taco shell - it's a game changer, according to inventor Alan Drazen. Drazen told Eater: “When you eat a sugar cone, you usually eat the nuts, chocolate, and cream on top. "With  Choco Taco, you get ice cream, cones, nuts, and chocolate with  every bite." 

For many people, Choco Taco brings back memories of a long time ago when enjoying a cold sweet treat on a hot summer day. Others may have more recent memories, especially since Taco Bell - which sold the product years ago - brought it back to select stores for a limited time earlier this year. . However, all hope was not lost. Some notable fans have been trying to find a way to revive the Choco Taco. "I want to buy your Choco Taco copyright and prevent it from disappearing from the childhoods of future generations," Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian at Unilever, Klondike's parent company, tweeted. Patrick Shriver replied that he would be "participating in it".
