There might be light at the end of the Choco-Taco tunnel.

Following Klondike's July 25 announcement that the beloved Choco Taco would be discontinued, fans from all over expressed their devastation. But a representative at Klondike has confirmed to PEOPLE that there are plans to bring it back.

"We knew the Choco Taco was a fan favorite, and the decision to discontinue the product was a tough one to make," the ice cream brand said in a statement to PEOPLE. "The overwhelming support for Choco Taco has certainly made us reconsider our long-term plans."

The statement continues to explain that the timing for the return is still unclear: "The team is working on a plan to bring it back, though it may take some time. There are currently no definite timelines for bringing the Choco Taco back."
