Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Maryland Cookie Creams
Posted: 14:28 Sat 16-08-2003. Location: Tesco Southampton. Sub-flavours: None noted - so far.
"ChoccieMan" reports: To quote the packet "Choc Chip Cookies Sandwiched with Chocolate Flavoured Cream". Sounds really good, but unfortunately doesn't taste much different from an ordinary Maryland cookie. The cream filling certainly doesn't seem to enhance the chocolateyness. If you're a chocaholic like me then stick two Maryland double choc cookies together with some icing :) Alternatively go the cheap option of eating two ordinary Maryland cookies at once. Has much the same taste really. Maybe if they bring out a double choc or hazelnut version they might be worth checking out.

...A special Saturday sighting today, one of several from the proprietor of the fact-tastic Chocolate Review. Today's The Grocer provides the additional snippet that 290g buckets of White Maltesers should start appearing in the UK in September (RRP 3.99), while site visitor "elmsyrup" internationally inquires: Can any Canadians tell me what Moritz Chocolate Icy Squares are like? I get the idea you see that they may be a bit like Lindt Pyrenees, which are the most delicious things I have ever eaten and which seem to have completely vanished - believe me I've searched. Always a good idea not to disappoint someone who eats mountain ranges for breakfast...

Comment: I'm a canadian living in the UK. Icy squares are filled with a truffle like filling. Usually available around xmas time in Canada. Also we consider these a cheap chocolate, I'd be offended if someone gave them to me.

Comment: Hello I am a Canadian from Winnipeg, in the heart of Canada. Icy Squares are gross. Its what chocolate margarine would be like if they made such a thing. Candy grease. Honestly, I don't know anyone who likes them. How does the company that makes them, Moritz, stay in business?

Comment: I received icy squares as a gift and I like them....I just sampled six of them..I like the "truffle like filling" that seems to melt in my mouth and don't find it "gross". I will buy some if I can find them and help Moritz stay in business.

Comment: I love icy squares, and I don't see how anyone could not like them! They melt in your mouth, and they taste like they're cold. I wonder how they make them taste like that...anyway they're really yummy!

Comment: I am Canadian living in the US - I love icy squares! Sure they're not the finest chocolate but I could eat them by the pound; and the childhood memories from Christmas morning make them even better!

Comment: I have a love of les pyrenees chocolate myself. After years of having French friends send it to me in the states, I have just found a site that will ship it for xmas. Here is the link: http://www.furansunocafe.com/liste_ produits.php3?base=gateaux&lang=en - 24k

Comment: Icy Squares are the best. They are not filled, but one solid piece of chocolate. You should be so lucky to have someone give them to you, I wouldn't give them to anyone!! They are my favourite, I can't wait for Christmas so I can buy them.

Comment: Icy squares are one of my favorite chocolates, it is so yummmmy; but technically, it is in fact "chocolate margarine" because it is made from hydrogenated oil, not very good for health.

Comment: I just found out that a single icy square is 23% of your daily recommended sat fat intake. They're killers, the icy squares.

Comment: the icy squares I remember from when I was a kid were smooth, creamy, melt-in-the-mouth goodness. the ones I tried recently were gritty, almost-like chocolate. these and the ones I remember are both brown and square. from there, the resemblence diverges...

Comment: I work at a store that sells icy squares...and here is a nice secret. we are selling the same batch that we had many...many years ago lol. funny story is that they still taste the same and we sell just as many. As it turns out they preserve very well. And after hearing about the icy squares and the daily fat intake...i think that someone should set up a society dedicated to sending 10 cent icy squares to malnourished people in foreign countries. Forget the whole idea to genetically modify plant seeds...get UNICEF to start sending kids home with icy square donation boxes at halloween instead of the school supply boxes so we could help fatten up the little starving people of Africa, and teach them to be english with a full belly... It can be our little gift to them. :)

Comment: Way back when, they were Moritz Icy Cups. Crinkly edged aluminium cups filled with chocolate miracles. No wrapper...those times are gone, eh? The squares are bigger, but the product isn't quite what it used to be. Still more than delectable enough in my opinion. Everyone I offer one to accepts with enthusiasm.

Comment: icy squares rock, they bring back childhood memories, they taste pretty decent too, yea the icyness of these choc's are neat too, for the price you can't go wrong also now these are made with COCONUT OIL so its not transfatty any longer :)

Comment: I live in Southern California (7 years now!) and used to live in B.C. and Alberta. Icy Squares are great! I think "Rockcandy" above is smoking something wacky if she thinks they are gross. I'm eating a few of them right now... by the way, they are available all year round in Canada and I'd like to be a U.S. distributer if someone can point me in that direction. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! Let's make 2008 the year of the ICY SQUARES!
