K is for Klondike bars.
It has been unseasonably warm here. A Klondike bar is a square of fluffy, innocuous ice cream coated in a thin layer of waxy chocolate, wrapped in foil printed with a logo that has changed little since the 1920s. For more than you ever wanted to know about their history, see Klondikes, Chipped Ham & Skyscraper Cones: The Story of Isaly’s, by Brian Butko.

Yum, indeed, Sheila! So tasty that I’m going to make my own with good ice cream and dark chocolate :D
Oh, and now I’ll have to make some (non-working) ones in miniature!
YUM!!! Who doesn’t like a Klondike bar but today on this cold, damp, possibly sleeting day I think I’ll stick with a mug of tea or hot chocolate. It’s 31 degrees in CT if you are interested. :)
So sorry, Bennie, that sounds dreary. How about a Klondike on a nice plate with a mug of Yorkshire Gold?
I have the sliding doors open in my studio as well as the front door and windows, creating a pleasantly temperate cross breeze. The cats and I are very much enjoying it :)
Call me ungrateful, but I just need More from my ice cream treats. Like “M” is for Magnum Bars kind of More. :op
Make no mistake, I am in no way endorsing the consumption of Klondike bars as being any kind of very good :)
I’m living inside a Klondike right now, surrounded by lovely fluffy snow. It is okay, we have a new snowblower and a stock of food laid in.
Hi ShelleyB! I picture a hollowed-out snow cave dug into the side of a Klondike bar with tiny scale figures lounging around a picnic on the silver foil :)
Exactly! With a cozy fire, mitts, scarves, fuzzy hats and down filled coats! Oh, and we are modern so there is Wifi too.
