Product Description

Cream Filberts

aka Mothballs or Snowballs

1 Lb

 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.

While satisfying a most deserved sweet tooth with your selection of Cream Filberts, you can rest assured that you are enjoying the freshest product that was prepared and shipped with kindness.
 Each item is packed for your order and customized which means freshness!We are open to the public which allows our products to be turned over frequently.

When necessary (most of the candy arrives in our store in bulk quantities), we package our 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.  This ensures that the product arrives on your doorstep ready to enjoy!

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. If you want ice and cool shield ($1.00 per 2 pounds candy), we can reduce the quantity of product to accommodate them and pay for them.

  Here at Boyd's we want you to have the best of both worlds...to visit our store here in Toledo, Ohio and experience the excellent customer service and family atmosphere, or to browse this website with ease and to receive attentive response to any questions you may have via our Customer Service email.  We believe you should feel at home whether you are here or cozy in your bed ordering treats and gifts for others or yourself.

Shipping:  USPS Priority Mail which is a 2 to 3 day delivery option.

At Boyd's, since the selections are predominantly made in pounds, we base our shipping in the same manner.  As always, we have your best interest in mind, and have set the Flat Rate system for shipping so that the cost doesn't leave a sour taste...that is the job for our Sour Patch Kids candy! Our shipping calculator allows around 3 lbs for a padded flat rate envelope.  Some products allow us to ship only two pounds and others allow us to ship 3 pounds at this lower rate.  It just depends on the bulkiness of the product.  For USPS there are now regional boxes which allow us to sometimes ship five pounds for just a little more, but we don't know the cost on a regional box until we know how far from our location the product is traveling, so we set the calculator such that purchases just under 3 pounds up to just under ten pounds receive a medium flat rate box rate.  When we can ship for less than calculated, we add extra candy or refund shipping dollars.  I hope this information helps you understand why sometimes shipping is more than the cost of a product as shipping is related to weight not to cost.  If you would like us to adjust your shipping, please email or call for a shipping quote once you have made your purchases but before you have paid.  Thank you so much for looking at our offerings.


We are licensed and inspected by the Lucas County Health Department and the Ohio Department of Agriculture and use a licensed exterminator, so you can rest assured your product is prepared and stored in a sanitary, and well maintained facility.

  1. Creamy memories

    Posted by Julianne Nielsen on 29th Nov 2013

    I love cream filberts, or as I called them, mothballs. They are just as I remembered. Crystal sugar over creamy goodness with a filbert (hazelnut) inside. Thanks for having them in stock.

  2. Great Creme filberts!

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Nov 2013

    I ordered the crème filberts because they were a family favorite. We were so happy to find them again and now they are a favorite for a new generation.

  3. These Are Delicious (And Addictive)

    Posted by Joanie Moody on 31st Oct 2013

    These are the wonderful cream filberts you remember from childhood. You will find yourself ordering them again and again.

  4. Hard to find candy at a good price

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Feb 2013

    This is my 81 year old grandmother's favorite childhood candy, and she can't find them anywhere anymore. I bought these for her for her birthday, and she is very happy to have them. Best price I could find online and very fast shipping. Thanks!

    I have eaten cream filberts since I was 5 years old; over 60 years ago. I started with some I bought at a Sears candy counter in Indiana. During the interim I have had many different versions of this candy. Boyd's are the best I've had since moving to Tennessee more than a decade ago!
