ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- These days, juggling household duties, work demands, the kids' schoolwork, and the constant buzzing of our phones has made it tough to carve out space to be alone with our thoughts and, naturally, our ice cream. That's why, today, Klondike has launched the Klondike Cone Zone – an ice cream cone shaped chair designed as a cozy private retreat for any home. This breakthrough in ice cream-inspired furniture gives fans who would do just about anything for a Klondike an immersive way to savor the new Klondike Cones – free from distraction.
"These days, many of us could do with a little less multitasking at home and a little more ice cream," says Russel Lilly, Vice President of U.S. Ice Cream at Unilever. "Eating a delicious Klondike Cone deserves its own moment of bliss, which is why we engineered the Klondike Cone Zone, so fans can literally escape, take a break and enjoy their sweet treat in the most satisfying way possible."
The Klondike Cone Zone is a premium hanging chair that draws playful design inspiration from the new Klondike Cones, allowing its user to be enveloped by a crispy wafer outer shell, while lounging on the plush seated tuft of a creamy chocolatey core. A zip enclosure offers complete immersion so fans can finally stop all the multitasking and simply focus their attention on the delicious Klondike Cone at hand.

The original Klondike® bar was handmade in the early 1900s by dipping square slices of ice cream into pans of rich, delicious milk chocolate. Until the 1970s, the Klondike® bar was sold only in Pennsylvania and Ohio. In 1978, distribution expanded into Florida, followed by New York and New England. Today, millions of Americans have come to love the Klondike® bar's delicious variety of frozen novelty products with the distinctive silver wrapper, square shape and famous chocolaty coating.
The "What would you do for a Klondike® bar?" advertising slogan has become an American icon and commonly referenced in pop culture. Klondike® bars remain top selling novelties in the ice cream category. There are currently 10 unique stickless bar varieties, including: The Original, HEATH®, Krunch™, REESE'S®, Dark Chocolate, Mint Chocolate Chip, OREO®, Double Chocolate, Brownie Fudge Swirl and Neapolitan. Three Minis varieties, the same classic bars now half the size for half the guilt, are available in The Original, REESE'S®, and Mint Chocolate.
The brand also offers two No-Sugar-Added stickless bar varieties in Vanilla and Krunch flavors. Klondike® also offers three ice cream sandwich varieties, including: Mrs. Fields®, OREO® and Classic Vanilla, as well as The Original Choco Taco. Klondike combines two favorite desserts with the Donuts varieties, including Frosted Strawberry, Boston Cream and Triple Chocolate.
