Could it have been a cold treat? There’s also a square thing with rounded corners in your grocer’s freezer section, the Klondike Bar. Immortalized in a commercial with the jingle “What would you do for a Klondike Bar?” and people would do stupid stunts for one. Which of course leads to the hipster t-shirt “What would Jesus do for a Klondike bar?” I kinda want one now. It’s just vanilla ice cream coated in chocolate. Another frozen thing I don’t know if you have over there is ice cream sandwiches, which come in foil wrappers - it’s crappy ice cream between two chocolate cookie things, rectangularly shaped. And now I want one.
Also in the freezer section are, crap, what do you call those things? Argh, you know, there’s lots of knockoffs, and basically it’s long little pouches filled with colored/flavored sugar water. You freeze them. I have the very precise tactile memory even as we speak of how the sharp edges feel in the corner of your mouth. I can’t for the life of me think of what they’re called. The name brand ones had cutesy little cartoon characters on each color. I liked the blue ones and the red ones and the green ones.
Also, I wonder if in faraway lands they have the “Nutty Buddy”? Another pre-formed ice cream treat, this one comes pre-made cone and all. You get a cone with the same crappy ice cream as seen in the Ice Cream Sandwich, and on top you get this flat piece of chocolate and peanuts. The whole thing comes in a wrapper. I don’t think I’ve seen them around for a while, though. Used to love the things as a child.
