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.

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.

    This was a gift for my mother and she was delighted. We look for these at shops and have trouble finding them, so she was pleased and surprised to receive them. They were a taste of nostalgia and obviously so delicious! I will have to get some for myself.

    These were just as I remembered them as a child... except fresher. Thanks for the memories... we called them snowballs. I will let some get stale for the real trip down memory lane... :-)

    Bought for a friend as a surprise for her birthday. Her father bought them for her and siblings as children and she had not seen them anywhere. She was pleasantly surprised and brought back a good memory.

    These are exactly the same as my dad's favorite candy. I first had them in the 1950's. I love them!

    creme filberts

    Posted by James on 29th Nov 2020

    They're wonderful. I'm 73. Used to buy them as a child in Lafayette, In at a store called McCord Candies on main street. Store still there but not like it was 60 years ago. Every now and then, about once every couple of years , I or my older sister look up a place to buy some creme filberts. Just a little trip down memory lane. I share a couple of pounds when I buy them.
