I have been enjoying Zero's for years...since I was a kid really....but I especially remember when I was 16 and had my first job at a Rexall pharmacy....I would have a zero from the candy isle everyday as a lunch/snack. I have been looking for them here at my new home in Seattle and am quite discouraged that I can't find a local store which still sells them. Help!

Hey Dave, I live on the West Coast also and have been looking for a Zero Bar too! Well this week I finally found them...at Target! Not all the isles at the check out had them but a few of them did. So delicious. I'm embarrassed at how happy I was. :) See if your target has them too. Good Luck

A family favorite! You can find these in dollarstores for 50 cents each I believe.

I still grab one of these from time to time. Definitely different than your standard candy bar.

One summer I worked at a mill and the management bought literally a truckload of these to emphasize safety and "Zero" on-the-job accidents. As it turns out, the union employees weren't real keen on them, and they probably wouldn't have taken a candy bar from "the man" even if it were their favorite. Consequently, us seasonal kids ate a lot of zero bars that summer.

I am looking for some Zero candy bars in the Renton/Seattle area for an object lesson. So far I have not found any at Target does anyone have another lead?

Wal-Mart sells these at their checkout counters. I once joked around with a junk-food obsessed (more so than me, if at all possible) friend, and asked him if he knew why they were named Zero. He said "um, no, Andria, why do they call them Zero?", and I said "Well, cause you ain't gettin' any, sucker!" I would also like to know the real reason why they are called Zero.

My Dad and I LOVE these! Hard to find, but worth looking for!

Andria, according to Hershey's website: http://www.hersheys.com/products/details/zero.asp , it is named zero because: "The name ZERO is believed to come from the bar being originally marketed as a cool, tasty treat; or as cool as Zero degrees. Some consumers still today enjoy ZERO candy bars frozen."

Thank you, Mr. Troy. I am glad to know how they (Zero bars) got their name. Also, my friend Leon (the dude I mentioned in my comment) will be glad to know.

My Mom's favorite! They are still easily found in Kentucky, thank goodness!

I'm from KY too and they are very common there to this day. I live on the east coast now and they aren't as easy to find but all the convenience stores in KY still have them. Cracker Barrel sells them as well and are a reliable source in the south.

White candy bar in a blue wrapper. Best served cold. My sister & I got these at the ballpark concession stand.

OMG! These were the best ever! And I tried to explain Zero bars to my husband and he never heard of them! Same age as me but I grew up in CA and he grew up in TX. If only I could find them now!!

I would always have a ZERO bar with a Pepsi after school...this was the 60's and I LOVED my ZERO. I wouldn't try it now even if I could find one...don't want to mess up my fond memories.

I still find Zero candy bars at 7-Eleven. Love them!

These bring me back to my childhood! I'd get these whenever I visited my grandparents at the little country store down the road from them; my grandfather would take all the grandkids to that store for penny candies and I'd always get a Zero bar & a grape Nehi. They're hard to find but still out there.

These were my ex-husband's favorite candy bars.

White candy bars are an abomination of nature. They fit perfectly into the category of 'other', and so should be prohibited by Kosher and Halal dietary code alike. I'm gonna call a rabbi and an imam and we're gonna wage a campaign against these, these... FREAK BARS!!!

I am 21 and had my first ever Zero bar in December 2011. I love these and just reading this page makes me want one! They are pretty hard to find. I got my first few at Rite Aid but they don't carry them anymore. More recently, I can buy them at Wal Mart and Speedway gas station.

WHAT EVEN IS THIS WEBSITE WHY AM I SEARCHING FOR ZERO BARS Well, you're thinking the same things, so welcome aboard I love Zero bars because of the memories they bring back of my dad and I, and I like to grab one for a midnight snack at a gas station. Really unique candy bar and would definitely recommend.
