A beloved summer treat may have seen its last days.

The Choco Taco, the taco-shaped ice cream snack made by Klondike, is on its way out after nearly 40 years as the company looks to make other products available.

“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,” the company said in a statement on its website. “A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco.”

As recently as last week, Klondike, a division of Good Humor-Breyers, itself owned by the food conglomerate Unilever, said single-count Choco Tacos would still be available at ice cream trucks and convenience stores nationwide.

It was not immediately clear what caused the company to reverse course. A spokesperson for Unilever did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
