Rated 5 out of 5 by Creme Filbert's Back in the 60's, My brothers and I would tag a long on Mom's trip to the mall just to beg her to buy a few crème filbert's at the department store. When I saw that you offered them in your catalog, I knew I had to order them for my brothers. Fun surprise! January 16, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Childhood Candy Found My grandparents lived in Dayton OH with small grocery stores which had many candies. I loved the "moth balls" that I could get at their neighborhood store. I have been searching for this candy for years ... Recently I found your catalog and knew I had found THE candy of my childhood. Hesitantly, I open the package and WOW ! They were just as I had remembered. Thanks for renewing my memories so that I can share with others my favorite childhood candy. January 14, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by An unusual and delicious treat I had this yummy special treat when I was a little girl at Christmas time. I didn't know it was still around but it is still as wonderful as I remember it was. January 13, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by SO Glad you carry these!!!!! My Auntie always had these at Christmas when I was a little girl and haven't seen them in years. I was so excited to see that you carry them and they tasted exactly as they did when I was child. Will most certainly be ordering them again. January 13, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite candy from my childhood My Mother and her friends drove to Decatur, Illinois periodically to shop. One of the gifts she brought home for me each trip was a locally made candy called "moth balls". These creamed filberts as very good, certainly as close to those I remember from 67+ years ago. Thank you for including them in your inventory. January 12, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet Memories A dear friend of mine loved this candy as a child. It was special for her to receive it. Over the many years since her childhood, this special treat just disappeared I searched everywhere I could think of to find this product to no avail. Finally I tried Vermont Country Store and they had Moth Balls! I purchase a bag every year for my friend for her Birthday (the end of December). She stills loves them! January 11, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cream Filbert's are a delight! As a child my mother used to treat us to these delicious candies, that we called "sugar balls"! Such a yummy treat. After they faded out of the local candy counters and stores, they were sorely missed for many years. Imagine my delight when I saw that the Vermont Country Store had them! I ordered one bag for my Christmas candy tray and one for a dear friend who also loved them as a child. We were not disappointed......they were the same quality of inside creaminess wrapped around a Gilbert with a crunchy sugar outside. Thank you Vermont Country Store! January 11, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Christmas Present Hi, My Mother always looks at the Cream Filberts (Mothballs) in the catalog but won't buy them for herself. So this year I bought them for her as a Christmas present. Boy, was she tickled when she opened them. January 11, 2017

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Cream Filberts 1 lb. Bag …

"I can't tell you how tickled I was to find a letter accompanying your catalog informing me you have the Cream Fiberts I've been waiting for. It's been years since they were discontinued and I'd all but given up hope when the good news arrived. You really do care about your customers' requests." - Sheila Tufte, Mesick, MI

"When I was a child many years ago this was the candy I always treasured. They were a little expensive so they were always a wonderful special treat and these taste exactly the same!!!" - Margo, Temperance,

"I have enjoyed Cream Filberts since my childhood over 60 years ago. I am so happy to find them again." - John, Oakland,

"I have looked for these candies for years. As a child I would go to a quaint little homemade candy shop with my mother and we would enjoy eating these delicious candies." - Lavon, College Corner, OH

"My Dad has such a sweet tooth as do all his four daughters, myself included. We always loved these growing up. When I discovered these again through The Vermont Country Store, I told all of my sisters and my Dad got some for his 80th birthday. What a treat for all of us." - Connie, Neoga, IL

"My grandfather loves these candies. We always made a special point to check for them whenever we were in a shop that sold old fashioned candy. I myself have been scouring the internet for years. I was even able to place a few orders online, only to be told, "Sorry, those are discontinued." I can't tell you how elated I am to have found these again." - Amy Jaronowski, Kent, OH

"When I was a little girl, Granma and Grandpa would take my sister and me downtown on the rapid, we would have lunch at Kresgies dime store, and every time we would get these. We called them the snowball candies - yum. I am so glad I found them again. Thank you." - annmarie crowley, cleveland, OK

"As a kid growing up in Cleveland, OH, my aunt and I would shop at a store called May Company, and right next door was this wonderful candy and nut store. Before boarding the bus, we always stopped in to purchase at least 1 pound of their cream filberts and savor them until we got downtown again. I look forward to my kids getting them for me at Christmas, and now I plan to supplement my supply myself, put them in the freezer and eat them 2 at a time until I run out. Thanks for keeping them on your shelves." - Beverlly Janelle, Claremontn, NH

"Years ago these candies were my favorite, then I couldn't find them anywhere. Everytime I was in an old fashioned type store I would look and they were not there. I was thrilled when I saw them in your catalog, and ordered them right away. They are still one of my favorites, and yours are just as good as ever. Thank you." - dee obrien, elizabethton, TN

"Oh, what joy when I spotted these confections in your catalog! I have been searching for this memory from my childhood for such a long time! Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, my Grandmother and her sisters, who always brought home the most delectible confections they could find, treated my sister and I to what we so lovingly called "mothballs"! This was a sweet we always looked forward to having at our house! Thank you, thank you for bringing this treat back and for helping us to relive such happy times!" - Donna Locastro, Valley Stream, NY

"As a child, our Aunt Peggy who lived in Manhattan brought these treats when she came to visit. To us, they were special, elegant and totally reminiscent of Christmas. We christened them "moth balls" and are delighted we were not alone!" - Kathy Lindgren, the hills, TX

"Over 45 years ago, when I was a young child, our baby sitter would give my two brothers and me one cream filbert each if we would go to bed on time. I loved them! About 12 years ago I found them sold in a candy store in Virginia Beach, only during the winter season. I bought them every chance I got. The store changed owners and no longer ordered in the cream filberts, known as snowballs. I did a search for them on the web and found that they were sold by Vermont Country Store. I have ordered them every now and then when I get feeling nostalgic. It is funny how the sense of taste can take you back in time! And these do taste the same as I remembered! Thanks a lot for carrying memories!" - LINDA DA SILVA, BUCKHANNON, WV

"When I was a kid, the "old man" in the neighborhood would sit on his front porch and watch all of the neighborhood children play. We'd beg him for a treat and he'd disappear into the house and reappear with a large metal-topped, clear glass cookie jar filled with these wonderful little treats (he called them mothballs). "Only one," he'd say, "we don't want to spoil your dinner." What a fabulous memory! We'd line up, single file, to get our mothball and laugh and cheer as we resumed our time of play. That was nearly 40 years ago, and I still love these little things. Thanks, Mr. Hacker, and thank you for the memories!" - Lori Cox, Broomfield, CO

"Thank you so much for carrying the old favorite Snowballs. I have remembered these since I was 7 years old but could never find them anywhere. My siblings hadn't a clue as to the type of candy I was talking about. Now I can purchase some for Christmas to remind them of the candy and the candy counter where we would get to shop once a week when we came into town from our farm. You have completed a wonderful memory for me. Thank you so much." - Peggy Ewing, Peoria Heights, IL

"My husband used to tell me about these delightful treats called 'mothballs' that he remembered from childhood. I looked for years and all I got were "Wish I could help you," or "I haven't heard of them in years.". Even the local confectioners said that if I could find a source they wanted to know, because they kept getting requests. Finally I found them here and promptly bought two bags. Then a few weeks later I had to do it again :-) Hubby can't stop raving about how they are just as he remembered. I admit I was skeptical.... until I tried my first....and second.... Fair warning - they should come with a warning sign: Caution - highly addictive :-)" - Sylvia, Shandaken, NY

"This candy was a special treat we received at Christmas when I was growing up. It was only available at one store and only during the Christmas shopping season. I bought some last year and when they arrived and I popped one into my mouth, the childhood Christmas memories came rushing back. It's hard to feel that kind of wonder when you've been around for more than 50 Christmas seasons!" - Tricia Cottrell, Council Bluffs, IA

"I have loved cream filberts since I was a child in the 1950s and '60s. I haven't been able to find them in stores until I saw them on your website. Which, by the way, was the only site that had them. My friends and I knew better than to eat a mothball, but that's what we called these. It was like breaking the rules to eat a cream filbert that looked like a mothball. We thought we were getting away with something really bad. Thanks for bringing them back." - Sharon, Fulton, MO

"Just like with other customers, this is a favored treat from my childhood. I am thrilled that The Vermont Country Store has brought them back!!" - Christine, McKinney, TX

"I love these and haven't had them for years. Thank you for bringing them back." - Joan Fornwalt, Prattville, AL

"Thank you so much for finding these wonderful and nostalgic candies. My family grew up with these. St. Nick always brought "mothballs" to us every year. When I bought them (the first time), I shared them with my sister, who was so surprised I had found them. She loves them as much as I do, but she is able to restrain herself and eat only one a day. I haven't mastered that yet! Thank you again!" - Sandy Enke, Maplewood, MN

"I just found your catalog in a bunch a friend was going to throw away, and lo and behold you have cream filberts!!! I thought I had been imagining that they ever existed. I had my last one when I was probably 18 and stumbled onto some at the KS State Fair. I haven't seen them anywhere since; it's been almost 40 years since I have had one. I can hardly wait to order them and get them on their way....Thank you for bringing back all the lovely memories associated with this treat from my childhood."-Malia Rich, Garden City, KS

"When I was a child growing up in California, these two wonderful people that i loved would take me to a nice department store and stop by the candy shop and would buy me these wonderful snowballs. I always remembered them but could never find them again. I'm so happy I found them. Now I can share them with my grown daughters." - Ann Lujan, Chicago, IL
