“Klondike" is a historical mini-series by the Discovery Channel, the premier episode of which aired last night. The show, which is the network’s first-ever scripted miniseries, centers around the late 19th-century Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon Territory.
Klondike is also the name of an iconic, square-shaped, chocolate-coated ice cream treat created around 1920.
In other words, it didn’t exist at the time of the Klondike Gold Rush. BUT WHAT IF IT HAD?
It’s important that Klondike is strapped tightly for safekeeping.
