Take the function of a taco shape, mix it with the elegance of vanilla and chocolate ice cream and you have the Choco Taco.

Klondike has been making these ice cream delights since 1984 but the run is over. Klondike dropped a devastating Tweet and statement on July 25th saying:

"We’re always updating our product portfolio to create new, exciting innovations that reflect consumer preferences and trends. A necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes discontinue products in order to ensure we can offer the best variety nationwide." 

Personally, I'm a Nutty Buddy man but the Choco had it's place in my world. There were days where I didn't want to get "nutty", days when I was feeling a more multi-cultural ice cream flare, and on those days, I put some choco in my taco.

Talking about things like the Choco Taco makes for great first-date fodder. I was phenomenal at bringing inconsequential, popular culture topics like the Choco Taco into awkward social situations, and coming out a winner because of it. So, if you have a first-date planned for this weekend, bring up the death of the Choco-Taco. I'm pretty sure if you do, you'll end up married to that person.

P.S. The Danbury ice cream man needs to take a few days off this summer. They are killing my wallet, popping up from out of the bushes, everywhere I go with my kids.

Some of Danbury + Brookfield's Best Churro Spots

A churro is a fried dough dessert found in Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. When covered in cinnamon and dipped in Dulce De Leche, it's one of my favorites. The question with anything worth having is, how far do I have to go to get it? If you live in Danbury or Brookfield, you are not going far at all. And, I'd put our churros in Danbury + Brookfield's up against any churro you can get anywhere. These are some of Danbury + Brookfield's Best Churro Spots.

100 Diverse Danbury Eateries to Keep Your Taste Buds Busy
