Cream Filberts

aka Mothballs or Snowballs

1 Pound (453g)

New Shipment Received 2-7-20

 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 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.

    Cream filberts

    There is too much candy surrounding the nut. The candy I’m familiar with had much less candy coating. They need to be smaller .

    The shipping of my order was amazingly fast. The candy was what I remembered as a kid and the price was acceptable. I will definitely be ordering from this company again. Look here for the candies that you remembered as a child, I love it.

    These are just like I remember from my youth and been unable to find in stores. These are top notch and I have been unable to find a spoiled nut in any of them.

    I used to love these "moth balls" as a kid and I guess I still love them. Thanks.

    Old-time “Mothballs”

    Posted by Carol Rogers on 5th Jul 2020

    These wonderful cream filberts were my favorites as a child. I was thrilled to find them at Boyd’s! This is a re-order for me because the first one was wonderful. I am 76 years old, so I started eating these candies a long time ago - and these are perfect. They certainly match my memory.

    So fresh they literally melt in your mouth! Even better than I remember them being some 50+ years ago!

    My dad grew up on these. It’s a great way for me to provide a bast from his past.
