Cream Filberts

aka Mothballs or Snowballs

1 Pound (453g)

New Shipment Received 8-23-23

 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

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.

    Wonderful is all I can say. Brings me back to childhood when my dad would buy them at Christmas time.

    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.

    Just as I remembered

    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!!!

    Snow balls

    Posted by Phyllis Jean Casteele on 8th Nov 2021

    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
