REVIEW: Rocky Road Klondike Bars


After introducing Klondike Bars to the blog with some of their Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups variety, the bright red lettering advertising a new flavor caught my attention. This latest Rocky Road release features a chocolate and marshmallow flavored light ice cream and milk chocolate flavored coating with almonds. Even though these bars tend to be average at best, they’re still nice to have around for a quick ice cream fix, so I thought I’d give these new ones a more detailed analysis. Just like the others flavors, this purple box is filled with six individually wrapped ice cream bars; each clocking in at 230 calories.


Once the aluminum looking packaging is peeled off, the differences between this and their standard Klondike Bars are immediately evident. Unlike the usual smooth chocolate exterior, these Rocky Road editions have bits of almond incorporated directly into the outer coating. This light, crackly chocolate breaks at the slightest bit of pressure to uncover the two types of light ice cream hiding inside. The almonds are a nice touch to the outside and add a bit more taste and texture on top of the standard chocolate usually utilized.


With the bar split in half, the chocolate and marshmallow ice creams are easily distinguishable. Although the two flavors feel low in fat and melt at an above average rate, they combine to provide a pretty decent Rocky Road flavor when coupled with the thin outer coating. Even though this is just a slight twist on their standard ice cream bars, these are worth a try if you’re a fan of their regular fare. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going out of your way to snag a box though; especially if you're partial to super-premium ice cream like me.


Where I Found It: Super Walmart
