The site also reports that some bars are selling online for $1,000.
Whether or not this is a joke is unclear, but users appear to be marking up the price tag for this rare treat.
Klondike Announces Discontinuance of Choco Taco
In an online post, Klondike wrote on Twitter and announced the ice cream would no longer be available in stores.
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,” a Klondike representative said in an email. “A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco.
