The Choco Taco To Return This SummerDad Bod Snacks

You probably remember where you were when you found out the Choco Taco was getting discontinued after 40 years. The news was just that devastating. Well, wipe your tears because a version of the beloved frozen treat will make its triumphant return in just a matter of months—and we have quite the unexpected duo to thank.

During Taco Bell's Live Más event in Las Vegas earlier this month, the fast food restaurant announced that it's partnering with the Portland-based ice cream company Salt & Straw to bring back the Choco Taco.

Now, this ain't your mama's Choco Taco. Salt & Straw's take on the dessert taco features a hand-pressed waffle cone that has been filled with cinnamon ancho chile ice cream, dipped in single-origin chocolate, and studded with toasted brown rice. And that's not all! The Choco Taco will also be served with three custom sauce packets (chocolate chili, cinnamon wild berry, and mango jalapeño) and a cheesecake dip.

And there's already a ton of anticipation surrounding the taco's release. Salt & Straw cofounder Tyler Malek has even dubbed it "the most delicious thing you will eat in your entire life."

Salt & Straw's version of the Choco Taco will be available this summer in all of their scoop shops. If traveling to one of their locations in California, Washington, Florida, or Nevada is a bit much, there is a much simpler option: order your tacos online! Salt & Straw will be providing nationwide shipping for their ice cream chocolate tacos.

Is anyone else already counting down the days until summer??
