Choco Taco, iconic ice cream truck treat, permanently discontinued

The Choco Taco, a favorite of the ice cream truck, is gone for good. 

Klondike confirmed on Twitter that the iconic treat was discontinued this month because of overwhelming demand for different Klondike products, CNN Business first reported.

The beloved taco-shaped dessert wrapped vanilla ice cream and chocolate fudge in a waffle cone taco shell, topped with milk chocolate and peanuts, turning the classic ice cream cone into a delicious portable package. 

Twitter expressed dismay that the Choco Taco was gone. Others ripped the brand for the decision — some expressed doubt that this is what consumers really could have wanted.

"A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco," Klondike wrote in another reply.

Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, even offered to step in to make sure the Choco Taco lives on.

"Dear @Unilever — I'd like to buy the rights to your Choco Taco and keep it from melting away from future generations' childhoods," Ohanian wrote.
