These matinee favorites seemed to disappear in the 1960s, but we found them again for you, now in a nostalgic Walnettos tin, made only for us, and designed from an old-time Walnettos candy box. Delicious, chewy caramels made with fresh cream and chopped California walnuts pack tons of taste in each bite-sized bit. 1.5 lb. tin. Refill the tin with our 24 oz. bag (#64766).

  • Caramel made with fresh cream
  • California walnuts, chopped fine, provide a fuller taste
  • The morsel you remember from the 1960s

Rated 5 out of 5 by There must be a hole in the tin! What's not to love about Walnettos? And how did I get to the bottom of the tin so fast? Anyone who was a kid in the 1950's remembers Walnettos (and other nostalgic candy), now found at the Vermont Country Store website! Hallelujah! And here we thought they were gone forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walnettos in a Tin: Does It Get Any Better Than This? I first enjoyed Walnettos when I was a kid at a scary religious camp... I consumed my small row of them judiciously as if they were long-acting coping pills. They were delicious then and they are even more delicious now---and the TIN, oh my gosh. I am quietly but deeply thrilled. April 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it. Had them when I was young, glad to have them again. April 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bring back the old days This was by far my favorite candy. I just hope you will have them in the futurte April 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by They're delicious but not entirely healthy Love caramels so therefore love Walnettos. They're delicious and walnuts are good for you--BUT they have one no-no ingredient for me that will remove them from my future orders--HYDROGENATED OIL. If the manufacturer can replace this unhealthy substance I would order them again. June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Addictive!!!!!!! Incredible candy the takes one back to their childhood. My Dad used to give me pieces of Walnettos and I have never forgotten the taste. They haven't changed and are just as addictive as they were back then! And I am 69 years old! March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by walnettos revisited My brother and I are both in our 80s. We loved and probably fought over Walnettos as kids. He recently recovered from hip re surgery and had a birthday and moved into a different neighborhood. I bought him a WHOLE box of Walnettos for a combination present. He says they're just as good as ever and threatened to go sit on a park bench, offer Walnettos to passing women and see if he gets hit with their purses Look that up in your Funk and Wagnell's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Memories I remember these candies from my youth. They are just as good as ever. March 4, 2014

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Walnettos Tin …

"Walnettos were a part of our extremely happy summers, to the extent that we reminisced about them for the past 50 years." - Helen Detorres, Valdosta, GA

"Dorothy sent us a Walnettos photo from 1941." - Dorothy Cain, Borrego Springs, CA

"I have always been very happy with everything I have purchased from you especially the Walnettos from my youth." - Mal Vineberg, Walnut Creek, CA

"My sister and I so enjoyed the candy. We went thru the 3 lbs. in two days. So many happy memories of the penny candies." - Stella Kruk, Wethersfield, CT

"For years I've been trying to find out whatever happened to Walnettos! When I used to buy them in the 1960's they were made by the PeterPaul Candy Co. SO HAPPY TO FIND THEM HERE! Can't wait to get a pound of them for Christmas treats! Remember the old "Laugh-In" show? Arte Johnson's 'dirty old man' character would always try to proposition Ruth Buzzy's 'angry old lady' character by suggestively asking her, "Wanna Walnetto?" And then she'd crack him over the head with her purse! Thanks for the memories, and for the opportunity to once again satisfy my sweet tooth craving for these chewy delights! Wanna Walnetto?" - Jennifer, Las Vegas, NV

"I hadn't tasted Walnettos for such a long time. It was a delight finding them again." - Donna Koop, Colorado Springs, CO


"I first had Walnettos when my brother brought home a bunch of MREs from training. They were left on the counter for a long time, since no one wanted to eat them. Then, having to satiate a sweet tooth, I tasted one. I have been looking for that wonderful taste ever since!" - Molly, Dever, CO

"Walnettos -- you say you remember from the '60s, well, I remember them from the '40s. Delicious! They were a pack for a nickel and enough to pass around to friends!" - Alice Avard, Encino, CA

"I have spoken about Walnettos since I had them way back when. They were my favorite candy and I have always wished they were back. Thank you!" - Linda Twidwell, Garland, TX

"My cousin and I used to go the Saturday matinees in the '30's. I LOVED Walnettos and am thrilled to find them after all this time." - JoAnne Taylor, Bloomfield, CT

"Ditto to what everybody else says! I too bought mine at the movies and the corner market (but in the 60's, not the 40's! I'm impressed!!) And, I needed a belated wedding gift for a far-off cousin and this was it! She says they've never tasted these before and are wowed by the taste! I'm surprised; I thought every kid in America has tried these at one time or another! (And, as an aside, they met a couple from Vermont on their honeymoon cruise and e-mail them frequently, so she's gonna see if that couple knows about The Vermont Country Store!) Another success story! I too thank you for the memories!!!" - Alana Tolstad, Lompoc, CA

"My grandfather used to buy these for my sister and me when we were little girls. I remember them in a 5 cent package. They look and taste exactly the same." - jackie galubenski, carrollton, TX
