2 Optimistic eBay sellers have listed their ice creams for up to $795 on the auction site

If you've missed the summer staple so far, it's a waffle cone filled with fudge-swirled ice cream, and dipped in chocolate and peanuts,

It was initially only available through ice cream trucks, but eventually Unilever, which owns Klondike, began to distribute it more widely.

However, it today confirmed that the summer treat is being pulled from ice cream trucks, convenience stores and grocery shelves.

It wasn't long before fans with the treats in their freezers began listing them on eBay in the hope of making a quick buck.

For example, one eBay seller is asking for a hefty $795 for a treat shipped with dry ice.

Another more generous seller is offering a box of 22 items for $200.

A box of 24 has previously been available on Amazon for $69.99, but they're now listed as out of stock.

In comparison, Taco Bell was selling the treat for just $2.99 earlier this year.

The news of the discontinuation of both pack sizes also sent some Twitter users into a meltdown.

One user tweeted: "There are bad decisions, like getting a face tattoo or French kissing an alligator.

"Then there are horrifically bad inexcusable decisions like discontinuing the Choco Taco."

Multi-millionaire Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian also called out Unilever on Twitter.

"I'd like to buy the rights to your Choco Taco and keep it from melting away from future generations' childhoods," Mr Ohanian tweeted.

A note on the Klondike website reads: "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 necessary but unfortunate part of this process is that we sometimes must discontinue products, even a beloved item like Choco Taco.

"We know this may be very disappointing."

In a response to a Twitter user, it added that it's "working hard" to bring it back to ice cream trucks in the coming years.

In other Choco Taco news, a cooking fan has revealed the exact recipe to make one at home.

Plus, a chef has revealed his $10 gourmet dinner meal with only 10 items.
