RE: Zero Bars
You can find Zero bars here in Chicagoland. I love 'em to pieces! I even recall the very first one I had: found them in a vending machine at the hotel we were staying in on a family vacation. I must have been about 13 or so.
My brothers thought I was just being the "oddball" again- why couldn't I just eat plain ol' milk chocolate candy bars like everyone else? Well, I never was "like everyone else," so I was content to eat my Zero bars, and soon, I ended up turning the rest of my family and friends on to them.
They certainly are different!
