“Over the past two years, we’ve seen an unprecedented rise in demand across our portfolio and have had to make very difficult decisions to ensure that our entire portfolio is available nationwide,” a Klondike brand representative told CNN Business in an email. I know this may be very disappointing.”
The representative said you may still be able to find Choco Tacos around while the vendors go through their inventory.
During the epidemic, it has become common for businesses shrink their wallets To help meet the demand for the most popular items. But even the least popular products have it loyal fans who resented the decisions.
Choco Taco was born in the early 1980s, according to 2016 article in Eater. At first it was mostly available through ice cream trucks. Eventually, Unilever, which now owns the Klondike, began distributing the product on a larger scale.
Ice cream in a waffle cone with toppings isn’t exactly innovative. But the ice cream in a taco wrap—that was a game changer, according to inventor Alan Drazen.
“When you eat a sugar cone, you generally eat nuts, chocolate, and ice cream on top,” Drazen told Eater. “With Choco Taco, you get ice cream, cone, nuts, and chocolate with just about every bite.”
For many, Choco Taco evokes old memories of eating cold and sweet food on a hot summer day. Others may have more recent memories, especially because Taco Bell – which has been selling the product for years – Brought it back to some stores for a limited time earlier this year.
However, all hope is not lost. Some high-profile fans are already trying to figure out ways to bring Choco Taco to life.
“I want to buy the rights to your Choco Taco and keep it from melting away from the childhood of future generations,” Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian tweeted at Unilever, the parent company of Klondike. Patrick Shriver replied He will “get into this”.
