Why Choco taco discontinued
In August 2022, the brand announced that it would no longer produce choco tacos. It has been reported that there was a sharp increase in the demand that the manufacturers could not keep up with. This is why they decided to withdraw the production of choco tacos. The ice cream wasn’t discontinued, it just under shortage.
The public was furious over the decision made by Klondike the discontinuation of their favorite ice cream. A lot of petitions were signed, which have helped in getting the attention of the company. For a few months, there has been a rumor that Klondike might bring choco taco back to the market. Reddit’s co-founder Alexis Ohanian even offered to buy the rights to the ice cream to restart its production.
They even had a meeting, but no news or decision was told to the public. The clone has finally responded to all these assumptions and said that they are thinking of bringing the ice cream back to the market due to so much love and customer re-insistence. An official from the team has said they are currently working on a new plan to bring the ice cream back to the market.
This has elated all the ice cream eaters who had been impatiently waiting for choco taco to come back in the market. The original flavor of choco tacos is irreplaceable, and nobody can copy it. But as a choco taco lover, you must be patient because the company has yet to announce any definite date for the re-launch of the ice cream.
You might have to wait for an extended period than what you expect.
Controversy with discontinuation

This reversal of decision has caused a lot of controversy in the market.
Many people have accused them of creating a fake hive by releasing this false news in the market. This helps them in gaining a lot of marketing and advertisement, all for free. Klondike has refuted all these claims by saying that the decision was honest and wasn’t a publicity stunt.
They had been facing many issues in the supply chain and manufacturing, so the brand decided to discontinue the production of this ice cream. There was no reason they would subject them to inevitable search humiliation by making a particular decision and then going back to what it was before making the decision. The brand has said that the only reason why they have decided to come back to the market is because of the love that people have shown for their brand and not for any fake marketing purposes.
When Choco tacos coming back
Despite all the controversy and trolling, the news of the choco taco coming back to the market has made many people happy. This was the staple ice cream of so many children, young and older adults. By discontinuation of this ice cream, the brand took away their happiness.
