Not your ordinary taco, amigo.

Klondike ice cream treat

Klondike ChocoTacos, come here, baby. Or as they call it on the box, ChocoTaco, as if there’s just one inside. Or as if they’re foreigners, forgetting the difference between single and plural? In any case, there are 4 chocolate tacos inside, each one wrapped separately.


I don’t like real life  tacos, as I can’t stand the smell of cooked corn, and don’t like bold spices, but these ice cream treats…are a favorite of mine!

These are medium to large sized rolled chocolate cones with ice cream filling and a tasty topping,  not so big that you can’t finish it, but it fills that gnawing in your stomach nicely. The chocolate sugar “taco”  waffle crust or wrapping, is firm, but tender, not crunchy, which I really like. (Sometimes the cones for ice cream cones aren’t very good, as if it doesn’t matter, and I’m looking at you, Drumsticks.) Good amount of chocolate thread mixed with the vanilla in the ice cream itself, nice texture. It’s overshadowed with the milk chocolate topping, but you won’t mind. There are small bits of peanuts in the coating, but it’s more of a texture than a taste. Good.

Try them, you’ll like them.

Gigi Reviews gives them a thumbs down. She likes them (the waffle crust) harder, I guess. On Second Scoop agrees with her! Good thing I never listen to other people. 😉

Sidenote: Hmm, ChocoTacos have their own Wiki page.  Was that necessary? I don’t trust Wikipedia at all anymore since they pulled that silly stunt shutting down SOPA, or copyright law.

Here is where I stop talking about chocolate, and rant about Wiki and copyright

And wow, Wiki is actually obeying Copyright Law by including a disclaimer now for this image of ChocoTaco, and I assume for other images.  About time.  So they hate copyright enforcers, like movie studios, news outlets, and cartoonists like me that have lost all their work to internet thieves, but now Wikipedia actually supports the law on their page. Because it’s the law. Not really, it’s so they won’t be sued. Wiki claims:

Though this image is subject to copyright, its use is covered by the U.S. fair use laws because:

  1. It illustrates an educational article about the Choco Taco, the product that the logo represents.
  2. The image is used as the primary means of visual identification of the article topic.
  3. It is a low resolution image, and thus not suitable for production of counterfeit goods.
  4. The logo is not used in such a way that a reader would be confused into believing that the article is written or authorized by the owner of the logo.
  5. It is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted image of comparable educational value.

Yeah, that goes for my use of the image, too. Plus I’m actually REVIEWING the ice cream, which is the whole point of Fair Use, dummies at Wiki!
