Heartbreaking news to share today- rumors are swirling that the beloved Choco Taco has been DISCONTINUED by Klondike! This news comes from Sno Kone Joe. Who is Sno Kone Joe? If you have to ask big fella, you can't afford it.
Takeout - Sno Kone Joe is the Facebook business page for an ice cream truck operator in Roslyn, New York, who does indeed go by Sno Kone Joe. As far as I can tell, he’s a real guy.
The headstone photo’s caption said:
The choco taco has been discontinued.
This is a shocker! The choco taco has been around since 1984, and was one of our most popular products.
Sno Kone Joe is up there with Dan Rather and Barbara Walters when it comes to the most trusted names in news. Mr. Kone Joe then followed up with Klondike:
Is it possible Sno Kone Joe is faking this? Sure. It's the internet. Everything on this thing is fake. But the guy from The Takeout did some digging and…
At first the call center agent had no idea what I was talking about, but when she inquired internally about the rumor, she confirmed it to be true.
“The Choco Taco has been discontinued,” she said. Holy crap. Straight from the source.
Unreal. Straight from Choco Taco HQ.
But yet, there is still hope:
Save us Alexis. Save our Choco Taco.
I will say this though- in all of school, from elementary through high school, the Choco Taco was SO EXPENSIVE. I remember vividly, it was $1.25 when all the other ice creams were 50 cents. I would get the Chocolate Eclair bar, I loved that thing. Hated the Strawberry Shortcake. It was very rare times I saved enough allowance money to get a Choco Taco. For the price, it just wasn't worth it. They are good, but not worth $1.25. Come high school I'm pretty sure it was like $3 for one. Give me a few Starcrunch and a Zebra Cake instead, man. Now that I'm extremely wealthy from founding Barstool Sports I can eat all the Choco Tacos I want, but as much as it pains me to say, .I understand the fundamental reason behind discontinuing them. I just hope they are saved, because they truly do hit the spot a few times a year.
