Original Vanilla Bar
Nothing beats the original – especially when the original is a giant block of creamy vanilla ice cream encased in a delicious, chocolatey shell.
An Original Klondike bar contains 250 calories and 14 grams of fat, which isn’t exactly healthy, but definitely better than a regular ice cream treat. Best of all, for those who want to eat lighter, they also sell 100 calorie bars (with just 5 grams of fat) and no added sugar bars with just 5 grams of sugar.
The Klondike Bar, subject of the best trademark lawsuit of the 20th century. Kraft’s attempt to rip off the Klondike bar turned out to be a major disgrace to the company, and not just because of the trademark lawsuit. In 1986, the company voluntarily withdrew the Polar B’ar from the market due to a Listeria outbreak.
Klondike bars don’t look particularly big, but they pack 23 grams of sugar, 28 carbs, 14 grams of fat (including an unacceptable 11 grams of saturated fat), and 250 calories. Somehow the square design is deceptive, as these desserts actually weigh 85 grams, making them one of the largest and unhealthiest options available.
Just bought some for the first time in years and was surprised. Your next 9News investigation. After 2008 everything got thinner!
Eskimo Pies vs.
While Eskimo Pies stuck to its tried-and-true chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream, Klondike offered a variety of ice cream flavors including grape, maple and cherry on bars in its first year of production.
The Klondike bar is a classic frozen treat known for its iconic square slice of vanilla ice cream covered in a chocolate shell.
The 13 flavors include Original, S’mores, Krunch, Cookie Dough Swirl, Caramel Pretzel, Oreo, Rocky Road, Neapolitan, Mint Choc Chip, Dark Chocolate, Heath, Reese’s and Double Chocolate . There’s a flavor profile for everyone to satisfy those ice cream and chocolate cravings.
The name “Klondike” evolved from the Hän word Tr’ondëk, meaning “Hammerstein water”. Early prospectors found the First Nations word difficult to pronounce, so “Klondike” was the closest approximation.
Properly stored, frozen ice cream bars and sandwiches will keep their best quality for about 3 months in the freezer, although they are usually safe to eat after that.

The original Klondike® bar was handmade by dipping square slices of homemade ice cream into pans of rich, delicious Swiss milk chocolate. In the 1940’s the Isaly family had several dairies supplying Klondike bars to more than 300 of their dairies.
The Klondike Bar was founded by the Isaly Dairy Company of Mansfield, Ohio in the early 1920s and was named after the Klondike River in Yukon, Canada. The naming rights were eventually sold to Good Humor-Breyers, a division of Unilever.
Our Klondike bars were all SIGNIFICANTLY smaller than the first batch we received.
And finally, the unhealthiest ice cream pint of them all: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup. This beer has the highest combination of total calories, saturates, and sugars of any brand on this list.
Klondike® bar becomes a national favorite
In 1993, Unilever acquired the Isaly Klondike Company and the Klondike® brand became part of Good Humors-Breyers™. This acquisition put Americans of all ages within reach of the most comprehensive line of cool treats in dessert history.
