Looking for ice "cube" trays

I want to find an ice cube tray that makes real ice cubes, not wedges like most ice trays do. I want to have ice cubes that look like the ones pictured in magazines (the ones for alcohols, where they just show the drink on ice, with these perfect ice cubes).

Sorry if that sounds really stupid but I know I've seen them in places I just can't find them. Any ideas? Thanks.

Keep in mind that alot of the photographers for the magazines are using fake ice cubes so the drink does get all watered down from the hot studio lights.

So true!

And, real ice doesn't photograph well - it's too transparent. There was a show on about food photography ... they use plastic cubes that are tinted according to the color of the drink they are used in.
