Voi ei, jäätelö on loppu taas. Isn't that correct, as well?

It is correct. It's about what you want to emphasize. I would say all the following are acceptable:

  • taas jäätelö on loppu
  • jäätelö on taas loppu
  • jäätelö on loppu taas.

Jäätelö taas on loppu would imply contrast to something else that hasn't run out, e.g. Kahvia on vielä, jäätelö taas on loppu.
