Zero, Zip, Zilch and Nada

Zero, Zip, Zilch and Nada

That's what I had for today's study of the letter Z over at Alphabe-Thursday

What could I post about?
the Zoo? no pics (yeah, I know -- can you believe it?!!)
Zippers? noooo, what would I talk about?
Zebras? no, that's right up there with zoo

So what, then?
and there it was....
the first word in my title

Zero !!!

The bestest of the best candy bars!!

I have a real love of Zeros, right up there with Baby Ruths and Peanut M&Ms (and let me tell you, don't EVER give me a whole bag of Peanut M&Ms -- I will eat the whole thing without pause). I have to be sneaky if I eat a Baby Ruth -- it tends to leave little chocolate "bread crumbs" about (so I dare not eat one in the car lest I be found out)!

But Zeros, well it was the white fudge outside that lured me in, 
and the almond nougat and peanuts that made me stay!

And put a Zero in the freezer for a bit --- sheer Heaven!!

I don't know when I discovered Zeros -- they've been around since the 1930s but, no I wasn't eating them then!! Probably found them in a vending machine somewhere when I was in high school.

These are cute wrappers I found -- all dates are approximate

 Wrapper pics from
The wrapper has changed over the years -- this one is from 1931
Note that it's only 1 cent!

1950s and 1960s
This is cute with the polar bear family

Another cute polar bear
This one is dated 2011

Today's wrapper isn't so clever
Just rather plain Jane
But that is a rather cool Z!

But it's what's inside that counts!!

So I'm glad I had Zero, Zip, Zilch and Nada for today, because it reminded me of Zeros!
(and I made my hubby go get me one..... for the photos, you know)

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

♥♥♥  I'm linking my yummy Zero over at Miss Jenny's for Alphabe-Thursday where we are studying the caboose letter, Z.

I've never tried one of these, but I'm picking one up on my next trip to the store! They do look tasty!

lissa said...

looks delicious! I like to try one but I fear I will get addict to it.

sweet Z post. have a lovely day.

Monica said...

Wow, I don't remember ever having eaten a Zero! Now I want to go try one!!

Cathy Kennedy said...

I love Zero bars and haven't had one in years! Maybe when I go the store next I can pick some up and when my DH asks what it for, I'm gonna say it's your fault. lol Thanks for visiting and sharing your fun post!

Rose said...

I have never had a Zero, but I'm intrigued now!

BeadedTail said...

I've never had a Zero and not sure I've even seen one but I'll be on the lookout for one now! And do you mean not to eat a big bag of M&Ms because the regular size bags are pretty easy to eat.

storybeader said...

I'll have to try a Zero. Don't think I've ever had one before. If you love M&M Peanuts (like me), I'll probably love the Zero! {:-D

Lmkazmierczak said...

Ordinary Words...I'll have to zero in on that candy♫♪

Kathleen said...

Ah oh - that candy bar looks awfully good! LOL - great "z"ero!

LimeRiot said...

Would you believe I've never tried one?? I always assumed they were minty. I'm going to see if I can track one down the next time I'm at the store.

Anonymous said...

Yum, that sounds so good!

Athena said...

This is my mom's absolute favorite candy bar, too, so this post was very nostalgic for me. :)

VBR said...

EEEK! How could I forget about the lovely yummy and wonderful ZERO candy bar. I loved them when I was a kid, but have not seen them in years! I prefer your zip/ZERO/zippo to my zero!

Sandra Tyler said...

never heard of a Zero. new to me! Fun post.

Interesting wrappers. I don't think I've ever seen a zero, but it sure looks good.

Linda Pruitt said...

You know, I have never tried a Zero bar. I guess I will have to, just for you!

Jenny said...

I've always loved Zero bars!

Whenever I see one (not too often) I be sure and buy one!

My husband doesn't care for them so that makes me happy! More for me!

Thanks for sharing zis cute post for the letter "Z".

I can't believe they still make Zero bars. My favorite growing up was the Marathon bar -- twisted caramel and chocolate that was in the shape of a pretzel like ruler. I don't think they make those anymore but I still love caramel and chocolate. :) Tammy
