When I was a kid growing up in Montreal, Sealtest, the local dairy company, used to make a frozen treat known as a Space Bar. This was basically orange sherbet on a stick, shaped like a fudgesicle, and dipped in chocolate. Pure heaven.
Sadly, Sealtest is long gone having been absorbed by one of the many huge dairy conglomerates, and Space Bars haven't been around for at least 25 years. I think in other parts of Canada they were called Brownie Bars.
Well, recently I was at a company picnic and they had a freezer full of frozen treats, and lo and behold there was the Space Bar - only under some different name like "orange sherbet and chocolate bar" or some such unimaginative title. It brought me back to the days of my youth.
Only one problem. Idiot me never thought to check the wrapper to see the brand and who made it.
I've since looked through the ice cream section of my local supermarket only to have no luck.
I've checked out the websites for Chapmans, the Popsicle folks and done searches for Canadian frozen treat companies. All without success.
You know what's next. Have any Chowhounders here seen these things here in Montreal?
