Now Klondike has paired with Flix Candy to make these candy versions of the ice cream. Thing is, I usually only have the plain, original flavor, and the candies come in Mint Chocolate Chip and Caramel. Mint Chocolate Chip sounded more like ice cream to me than Caramel, so I went with that.
Opening up the wrapper, the chocolate smells suspiciously like York Peppermint Patties. Instead of being just one or two Klondike bar-shaped candies, there are four small squares, which further reinforces the peppermint patty comparison, even if they are squares instead of circles. I suppose it's also all similar to the ice cream truffles Godiva released a couple years ago.
The chocolate coating is fairly thin, and it is suspicious (or is humorous the word?) because it is called a "dark chocolate flavored coating." Why use dark chocolate when you can flavor an oily goo with dark chocolate flavoring instead? The minty inside looks like the peanut butter center of a Reese's cup: they both have a dry, crumbly sort of look to them. But whatever it is made out of, it's designed to melt in your mouth, evoking melting ice cream. It's a rather nice effect.
There is peppermint oil (really, artificial peppermint is pathetic), so there is a strong enough minty taste. It isn't wholly fresh, but I wasn't expecting it to be. Everything is all very sweet, as if this were an ice cream bar. I don't know if such a candy is worth the two dollars I got it for, but it's the concept that's fun. A Klondike bar that's a candy instead of an ice cream. Why not? At least it admits it's candy--and even admits that it doesn't have dark chocolate.
