Where can I find Godiva Ice Cream

It's been several years now since Godiva ice cream (Belgian Dark Chocolate) disappeared and still no substitute has been found. I have sent several emails to Godiva; at first they said the return of Godiva ice cream was pending, now they say its not going to return. I urge others to petition them as well. In the meantime, I won't buy any of their other products. Their chocolates are not up to the quality of their ice cream IMO.

Here in the south about all we can find at grocery stores are grits of the quick and instant variety and usually only white grits are available. Avoid the instant grits..nasty. The best grits are stone ground and can usually be found only at old fashioned grist mills, some of which sell their products on the internet. These take a lot longer to cook but have really good flavor. The thing to remember when cooking grits is to be sure to use enough salt. For some reason, most restaurants that serve grits rarely use enough and their grits just aren't very tasty.
