  1. I see it once in a while. Have you tried Dollarama, Jean Coutu, Zellers or Rossy?

    1. In almost every Dollarama.

        They (Zero bars) used to be good.... are they still good? Is it a good chocolate anymore/still?

        1. re: rikk

          It's the same as it always was. To be quite frank, it was never good. It's chocolate icing in bar/square form. I'm not saying I don't enjoy it, but it's not good chocolate and it never was.

          I'm pretty sure Biscuiterie Oscar has them, too.

      2. I thought there was a rule about not selling Zero bars in the summer, as they melt? Something some depanneur told me once. Will look out for them.

          I have heard this too. Some dépanneurs carry them through the summer, but you have to check the refrigerators. Costco also usually sells both the milk and dark chocolate varieties by the box-full. This may be seasonal too, however.

        2. Wait, I'm confused. The Zero bars I'm thinking of are the ones back in the US covered with white chocolate. Is this a Canadian variation?

            Probably, because the Zero bars I remember are not from white chocolate, but milk chocolate. They also have a dark chocolate one, as Andria mentioned (packaging is gold compared to grey-silver for the milk chocolate).

              Canadian Zero bars are not the Hershey Zero bars covered in white chocolate. Who knew? ;-)
