Klondike has released a statement on its website announcing that it is halting production of the Choco Taco, a taco-shaped ice cream snack that has been sold on ice-cream trucks for nearly 40 years, NBC News reports. "Over the past two 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," the company said in a statement. "A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco."

As Eater writes in its eulogy for the dessert, "For some people, the Choco Taco — a sugar cone shaped like a taco and stuffed with ice cream — was synonymous with summer nostalgia. It was arguably among the best options at any well-stocked ice cream truck, alongside firecracker popsicles and ice cream sandwiches."
