The Klondike bar was created by the Isaly Dairy Company of Mansfield, Ohio in the early 1920s and named after the Klondike River of Yukon, Canada. Rights to the name were eventually sold to Good Humor-Breyers, part of Unilever. It is known for its jingle slogan, "What would you do for a Klondike Bar?".
The first recorded advertisement for the Klondike was on February 5, 1922 in theYoungstown Vindicator. The bars are generally wrapped with a silver-colored wrapper, upon which the mascot for the brand, a polar bear, appears. Unlike many similar frozen treats, the Klondike bar does not possess a stick for a handle, as opposed to a traditional ice pop, a point often touted in advertising.
The Klondike Bar was also the first created ice cream bar with Good Humor taking the idea and adding a handle or stick to become the first ice cream bar on a stick.
