About klondike


At Klondike, ending all forms of racism is one of the few things we take completely seriously. That’s why Klondike, along with other Unilever brands, have collectively contributed $350,000 to Stop AAPI Hate, as well as more than $8,000,000 to Black Lives Matter and other organizations and activists working towards a more equitable world for BIPOC. And we’re always listening and looking into new ways that we can help put change into motion! For more information on Unilever’s commitments and ways we’re dedicated to change, click here.

Making Squares Cool since 1922

Like many classic American brands, Klondike® began with humble roots and flourished through hard work, passion and a commitment to quality more powerful than a wave of brain freeze.


William Isaly founded the Islay Dairy Company in Ohio during the early 1900s.


The Isaly family had several dairy plants that supplied more than 300 Isaly Dairy stores.


Until the 1970s, Klondike® ice cream was sold only in Pennsylvania and Ohio.


In 1978, distribution expanded into Florida, followed by New York and New England.


A nationwide advertising and publicity campaign was launched with the tag “What would you do for a Klondike Bar?” Soon Klondike bars were available across the country.


Invented in Philly, the beloved choco taco is born.
