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.

This is my absolute childhood favorite. I have unsuccessfully looked for them for years. I’m 77 years old. Yours does not disappoint. Thank you.
I bought the cream filberts for my sister’s 76th birthday, as we had this candy often when children. Thanks for the memories!
I love these, reminds me of many wonderful Christmas trips shopping with my mom. We had a store that carried them and she always told me stories of when she was a little girl. Plus Boyd’s has a huge selection, fast service and always sends a personal Thank You with the order. Great store!
They do a fantastic job creating this confection. I don't eat lots sugar usually but I have no problem splurging for these delectable treats.
The best place online to get your old time candy! Great service, fast shipping, smooth transaction.
I love this candy, and can't find it anywhere else! Melts in your mouth smooth!!!
My daughter fell in love with "mothballs" several years ago. She was devastated when she no longer could find them. I found them on Boyd's Candy and can not wait to give them to her at Christmas. Boyd's sent me a small baggie of them marked as "Extra". I had to try them! They were just like I remembered them. Also, they were packed securely ad there was no breakage! Thank you!!!
I dearly love my childhood snowball filbert candy. My mom used to take me to Lazarus as a kid and go to the candy dept and always get the snowballs. Love that I found them at Boyd’s — very awesome customer service- being in my 70’s I appreciate so much good quality and good professionalism. Thanks so much and God Bless you guys!!! Hope you had fun on you holiday
Just the way I remember them when I was a child.
