Ice Cubes Sat, 11/4/06 4:53 AM (permalink)
Does anyone remember these? About an inch square wrapped in a gold kinda foil. OHHHHH they would just melt in your mouth. I had a neighbor that would buy a whole box of these and I always got to have one. I wonder, does anyone know if they still make these?

    yes. they're available from Vermont Country store, and I assume other places as well.

      I used to love those!!!I occassionally see them at convenience stores,but they are not available as much as they used to be.I bet if you google them you will find an online candy site that sells them.Thats how I found my favorite Charms Pops.

        I love those too! They seem to be much creamier and less sweeter than your average chocolate..more like European style..

          Yes. They always seemed a little more "mushy" than other chocolates.
          I'm trying to remembe the colors of the foil wrapper...

            Ice Cubes are one of my favorite childhood candies but I haven't seen them in quite some time. I am now a Nutella addict (I like to dip animal crackers in it) and realized when I saw this thread that the two share a common ingredient: hazelnuts. Does anyone else know of any foods using hazelnuts?

              I've often been curious about why hazelnuts are so popular in Europe but not in US. Hazelnuss is very common in lots of things in Germany. Maybe they don't grow in US?

                Aren't filberts and hazelnuts the same nut?

                  Filberts are a type of hazelnut. Hazelnuts grow pretty much all over the U.S. I've gathered them many times, but they don't seem to be used much commercially in the U.S.

                    I still see Ice Cubes sold at just about every gas station in my town. Their a quarter piece now though. Still as good as I remembered them in my youth.

                        YES.. they are awesome!!!! but you have to eat them slowly or suck on them (i know that sounds strange but that's the best way to eat them..) they still sell them at our corner gas station-- every now and then i get one.. they bring me back to childhood!!

                        they are good...
                        :)

                                My dad used to occasionally bring home Ice Cubes for us as a treat when we were kids. We loved them. What a nice memory!

                                  I remember them! My dad would get me one when I went to the pharmacy with him. I still see them around.
                                  They are still sooooo good.

                                    They still sell them around New Jersey. I don't think I've ever eaten them. I just liked the wrapper color.
