A few weeks ago, Klondike announced that the Choco Taco was no more, but after people publicly expressed how much they would miss the treat, the company was reconsidering.
Klondike told CNN They are developing an action plan.
The overwhelming support for Choco Taco has certainly forced us to rethink our long-term plans,” Klondike said in a statement emailed to CNN Business on Friday. “The team is working on a plan to bring it back, although it may take some time,” Klondike said.
Adding: “There is currently no fixed time frame for bringing back the Choco Taco,” Klondike said.

Prices listed on Facebook’s Los Angeles area Market Place show ice cream for sale ranging from $25 to $500.
The site also reports that some bars are selling online for $1,000.
Whether this is a joke or not is unclear, but it seems that users are flagging the price tag for this rare treat.
Klondike also emphasized that the initial announcement was not a publicity stunt.
“The closure was the result of complex production challenges and not a stunt,”
