Following backlash over its removal, Klondike executives announced Wednesday that they will attempt to bring back the highly beloved Choco Taco “in the coming years.”
The company tweeted, “We know this is disappointing — we’ve heard our fans, and we’re hoping to bring this favorite treat back to ice cream trucks in the coming years.”
We know this is disappointing – we’ve heard our fans, and we’re hoping to bring this favorite treat back to ice cream trucks in the coming years!

The statement was written directly to a disappointed customer who claimed she had searched extensively around her “area and surrounding cities” for the last of the Choco Tacos but had been unsuccessful.
“Absolutely heartbreaking,” she wrote.
Klondike, owned by the parent company Unilever, announced late last month that it would discontinue the desert option due to increased demand for other products.
“Unfortunately, the Choco Taco has been discontinued in both 1ct and 4ct packs,” Klondike wrote on Twitter last month.
“Over the past 2 years, we have experienced an unprecedented spike in demand across our portfolio and have had to make very tough decisions to ensure availability of our full portfolio nationwide.”
Klondike has urged fans of Choco Taco to try other frozen desserts on its social media.
“A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco. We know this may be very disappointing, and hope you’ll try our other delicious frozen treats!” the company wrote.
