Rick and Morty Season 6 Shouts Out the Choco Taco

Rick and Morty has been taking fans by surprise with each episode of Season 6 so far, and the newest episode definitely adds to that list with a surprising shout out to the now discontinued Choco Taco! It's been a wild season for the series so far as each episode have been exploring the Smith Family in different ways, and the newest episode of the series is no different as it was the series' first real foray into the world of Horror movies and tones. But there's still been time to tell some Easter Egg jokes despite everything going on. 

Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 4 is titled "Night Family" and it saw the Smith Family taken over by their night selves who wanted to live during the day like them. This goes just about as well as you would expect from many Horror movies where they end up losing to the Night Family when all is said and done, but then they lose so much more. As seen in the episode's final moments, each of them comes to from their extended absence during the Night Family's take over only to find the Choco Taco had been discontinued.

The taco shaped ice cream was first created back in 1984 and had become a staple of snack time everywhere, but it was announced by Klondike that the treat would be discontinued. With production no longer moving forward for the massively popular ice cream, it appears that even the team at Rick and Morty was surprised to find that out too. As the episode came to an end, each of the family was taken over by their Night versions and thus slept through many months while their Night versions lived their lives. 

But when they get to wake back up and discover how much time has passed, Rick finds out that they have missed the fact that the Choco Taco had been discontinued. It results in the rest of the family screaming at the notion of it, and it's pretty funny considering this was the real first time each of them had screamed in terror despite all of the Horror movie overtones that were throughout the episode as whole. 

As for the Choco Taco itself, there's yet to be any sign of it coming back. What did you think of Rick and Morty's shout out to the Choco Taco? Do you miss it too?
