Wow, not only do they weigh the same, but their packaging definitely shares a similar theme. Funny how orange means peanut butter. Since there's nothing really seperating these two, I'm going to have to give this round to Klondike for adding those funky sparkly metallic streaks to the mountain tops (notice the top of the packaging and how it's all different colors depending on the angle).
Round 2 : Appearance
Wow, they are almost the same size.
My favorite round! Now let me tease this part by saying the Klondike sandwich has a nice suprise in the middle of it - a big ol' squirt of fudge in the middle of the treat. Those brown circles you see are the tiny chocolate chips we heard about in the description (my apologies for the blurry picture). Time to try these treats (with water and pretzel breaks in between to cleanse the pallette)
I started with half of the skinny cow and was greeted by a chocolate treat with a surprisingly muted peanut butter flavor mixed in. I'm trying to think of where I had this before. It's kinda like a funky chocolate cakey cookie with peanut butter hunks mixed in (not literal hunks, but for flavor). I'm not loving in, but it's ok.
Time to try half the Klondike. Hmmm. Now I know why Marvo was unimpressed. It's ok but it's not really winning me over. I like the little chocolate chips, those are a nice touch, but overall it's just ho hum.
Ok, back to skinny cow again. It's, ummm, yeah, I'm starting to get that fish food vibe from the chocolate wafers. Sorry, but the smell mixed with the taste is really starting to annoy me. These might be better on a second scoop, but at the moment I've already lost my patience.
And then finish with the Klondike. I definitely like the Klondike more. The flavors may be mild, but at least they are more normal (traditional). Sorry skinny cow, you are down for the count.
Knock Out! Klondike is the Winner!
the Klondike may not be a great treat, and it's not even a filling treat, but at least I look forward to trying another. Sure, the skinny cow has less fat, but man, those wafers continue to bug me. I don't even know why I bother buying these things, my tastebuds just aren't wired in a way that I can enjoy them.
Klondike you got lucky on this one. I think alot of us will be tempted to buy at least one box of these, but I don't know if they warrant future purchasing. I'll definitely second scoop them in the near future and try to get a bit more in depth on my analysis.
On Second Scoop: I just had my lunch time dessert before my lunch and so I feel the need to quickly recap the Klondike bar here. The aroma on sample #2 was better (maybe #1 was a fluke). I definitely like the chocolate chips, they remind me of a chipwich, and I wish there were a few more of them. Wafers are decent if not a little dry, though this could seem worse due to the dry nature of peanut butter. Overall it is a decent treat, and I don't think you'll feel totally jipped giving them a try, I just don't see these making a return appearance in my freezer anytime soon.
On Second Scoop - Part 2 : To be fair, it's a few hours later and I just had another Skinny Cow. I'm sure some people will enjoy these, but I just can't place that odd taste that these things have. It is some artificial ingredient bugging me? I just don't know. The after taste is unpleasant, let's put it that way. I'm all done with these.
My daughter just did a double taste test and the winner is.... My daughter for tricking me into giving her two ice cream sandwiches! Good job sweetie, you have learned well.
