Thanks for posting the picture of "Ice Cubes", now I know what you are talking about. Here in Canada we call them Icy Squares. I don't understand why things are named differently above and below the border. Odd isn't it?
Hi Alix,
You're taling to a Canadian gal, through and through

I know them as Icey Sqaures too, in the bright jewel toned foil wrapper (in both cups and sqaure...never could pick a favourite). I've never seen them in Europe though

Nutella is absolutely delicious!!! First time I ate it was over 14 years ago in Germany, just few years later nutella appeared in my homecountry. I must admitt that I was quite shocked when I came to Canada ( around 5 years ago) for the first time and except for Polish and German commuinity nobody seemed to know anything about Nutella. I am so glad that it is finally here :)

Looks like them too, being that the UK is closer this might be a good way to go, I've kept an eye open in Irish candy stores but have yet to see them. LOL, amazingly I've yet to find plain old red licorice (Twizzlers) either... Just have to keep hunting

Hey everyone!!!!

I first discovered nutella when I was still living in Colombia. I had a german boyfriend who would go crazy over it. When I moved to Europe 5 years ago, I started seeing it everywhere. I especially have this souvenir from Bologna in Italy. I went there with a friend from school and since we were students (which = poor) we would only eat in mc donald's. When we got to Bologna we replaced Mc with a Nutelleria!!! It is this shop, like a bakery, where you can sit down for some coffee and a piece of chocolate something. They sold crepes, croissants, bread, cookies, all you can imagine in a bakery topped with nutella. And for extra cost, they added fruit pieces. Guess where I spent all of my money when I was in Bologna. It's been 5 years and I remember bologna and get this craving for nutella.

My fiance (Belgian) is addicted to Nutella. Sometimes we buy some and he can easily eat 3 or 4 slices of bread with nutella in the morning. I, on the other hand, am more of a salty person in the morning. I like eggs and ham and bacon. But when it comes to nutella... You can guess what happens

Sorry, ate them all already. By the way, when were you going to tell me you had a whole bag of salt water taffy stashed away?
