Alix, you have to stop posting Canadian only foods here. It gives your countrymen an unfair advantage. And it makes us crazy!

They used to be even better! That creamy, chocolatey centre mmmm...

They seem to be made by Moritz these days. I'm sure they were made by the company that makes Zero before.

taxlady, I am married to a man who should have been in Quality Control for a chocolate company. He can tell you exactly when the Icy Squares changed and how.

Andy, not decorating stuff. Its something "iconic".
