Review: Mint Chocolate Chip Klondike Bars

A few days ago, I was at our local Wal-mart Super Center picking up a few things I needed and happened to walk past their grocery freezer section. As I was passing one of the freezers, I noticed something different; Mint Chocolate Chip Klondike Ice Cream Bars.

As I have said in the past, I’m not really a huge ice cream fan. But, I do like Klondike bars and love mint chocolate chip ice cream. I immediately wanted to try these as a result but, because I had a pretty strict spending limit, I couldn’t buy them. However, I told my wife that I was going to buy them the second I got paid.

Payday was yesterday and, true to my word, I bought these ice cream bars. And, I do not regret this purchase.

One thing I’ve noticed about other ice cream products is they will often promise me something different but, when I actually eat one, I find it doesn’t really taste any different than their normal varieties. Because of this, I did temper my expectations a bit before trying these; just in case the only difference between these and regular Klondike bars was the green color.

However, that was not the case with this brand. There was no mistaking this for something different because, when I bit into that first one, I was almost overwhelmed with the mint flavor. I jokingly told my wife it was like eating toothpaste with a chocolate coating. This, of course, was a bit of an exaggeration. But, it was still much stronger than expected and it took me a few bites to get used to it. And, I have to admit, the mint flavor combined with the chocolate coating (the one thing I love about Klondike bars) was very pleasant; much better than any other ice cream treat I have ever tried.

My only real complaint about this product was the fact there really weren’t that many chocolate chips in it. There were a few. But, I honestly was expecting more. However, I have had other products that didn’t even offer that much so I still would consider it an improvement over most other ice cream treats.

In fact (and I don’t say this about a lot of products), this is an ice cream treat I would love to buy again and intend on doing so in the future. If you haven’t had a chance to try these, I recommend picking up some.
