Cream Filberts

aka Mothballs or Snowballs

1 Pound (453g)

New Shipment Received 5-21-19

 Hot Weather Warning: If you are more than a two day ship from OH, I do not recommend you purchasing this item when temperatures exceed 71 degrees.  Be certain you have someone available for your delivery so the candy does not sit in the hot sun.  Melted candy can not be guaranteed.  We do our best to protect your candy, but can not control what happens in heat in excess of 70 degrees.

 The filberts (hazelnuts) are panned in copper kettles until the whole nut is encased in crystallized sugar, a time-consuming process that takes days, but one we're sure you'll find well worth the effort. Whether you prefer to let these sweet treats slowly melt in your mouth until you get to the filbert nut or simply bite right into them, you won't be able to resist them. 1lb. bag contains approx. 38 candies.

Filbert nuts are patiently panned in copper kettles

Filberts are encased in crystallized sugar

Ingredients: Fondant Sugar, Filberts, Water, Sugar.

Manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts.

This candy arrives in our store in bulk quantities and is packed for your order when we receive the order.  We package small quantities of this candy in cellophane bags that are heat-sealed. We then seal and bag again for product safety and include an ingredients label. Products are then boxed and shipped.  Larger quantities are double bagged for safety and an ingredients label is included. It is then boxed and sealed for shipment. If you want candies bagged in one pound bags, you will have to tell us that as when we receive an order or five pounds, we ship it as such.
Our cream filberts are soft and fresh.  If you want old hard crunchy candy, you'll have to set it out and let it age:-)

 It costs the same to ship 1 pound as it does to ship 2 pounds, so order 2 pounds and share with a friend.

    Super sugary holiday confection with a filbert inside that brings back memories of when our kids were young 30+ years ago. A candy to be savored and eaten slowly. Yum.

    Memories from childhood - Delicious ones!!

    Posted by on 16th Dec 2016

    When I was a little girl, each Christmas my paternal grandmother would send a big box of her home made cookies along with a bag of "mothballs".
    My grandparents lived in New York and we could not find the candy on the west coast. When I found Boyd's and they had the candy, I was ecstatic. I ordered a few pounds and thrilled my brother when I told him of my find and that I would send him some.

    Memories of my past

    The creamed filberts are so good. I have searched for them each time I go to a candy counter. I grew up on a farm and it was a real treat to have this candy on special occasions as a child. I was so happy to find them again...thank you Boyd's

    Reliviing childhood sweet memories

    Posted by Alaska Lainie on 3rd Feb 2016

    Going back to childhood days, one of many special treats saved for holiday celebrations was the Cream Filberts, better known as moth balls or snowballs depending on time of year. It has been years since I had this wonderful candy but that doesn't mean it was forgotten. I often wondered what happened to this sweet treat. Curiosity got the best of me. I searched online and discovered Boyd's Retro Candy. I was delighted to find this marvelous little white ball in the nostalgic category and immediately placed an order for 2 pounds. When the next holiday nears, I'll be placing an order for Cream Filberts to be shipped to my son. No doubt he will soon have a memory of his own about moth balls and snowballs.
