Klondike: many flavors

the klondike bar - basically an ice cream bar w/out a stick - is quaint cuz its stick-lessness rejects mfrs' current tendency to make food "easier" via holders, containers etc (for ex, the little spouts they put on milk cartons now. spouts which are unnecessary and add another bit of plastic to the landfill. all so that it's easier for morons to open the frigging carton. but i digress) the klondike originated in PA & OH; Unilever (now good humor-breyers) bought 'em in '93 and has expanded the original vanilla+choc w/ a dozen+ flavors: caramel swirl, choc, cookies & cream, dark choc, heath bar, hershey w/ almond, krunch, neopolitan, oreo, reese's, york pepp patty, planters caramel & peanut, strawb chzcake, & "whitehouse cherry" which of course isn't avail in the dallas area becuz after all it sounds GOOD
no "fun" links today pls forgive but this tells where the name came from; this guy has a small piece on the early history of the klondike bar. here's a discussion about the klondike bar amongst a bunch of astronomy nerds

Hey...with the number of dogs and cats around my house, your best will be like a walk in the park for me.

But I do think you're a cute little puppy.

My gripe with the Klondike is that the ice cream is too soft.

Have been reading the blog this week, but just haven't felt had anything of interest to post. Do want to say that tg is great for keeping the blog going. Is't it coming up on a year now?

wow, a year??
I do love Klondike, haven't tried any of the flavors, how can you get better than that creamy vanilla ice cream with chocolate coating???
I agree with TG about those milk cartons, I couldn't believe when they came out.
