Walnettos Walnut Caramels (24 oz. Bag)
Faulty memory? Bad batch?
I also had great memories of Walnettos (one if my two favorite candies of all time!) - finally broke down and bought a tin (actually 2 - sent one to my sister).
What an incredible disappointment! The "caramel" (more on the fudge side than caramel) was grainy (sugar crystals?).
There seemed to be a generous amount of nuts and yet the flavor was more on the chemical side - perhaps artificial walnut flavoring applied with a heavy hand?
The after taste was quite unpleasant - nothing like my memory of an incredibly unique caramel.
I'll save the tin as a remembrance of what used to be but is no more . . .

I always look forward to shipments of Walnettos because I know I can't get them anywhere else, and they're by far the best candy I know of. I try not to gobble them all up and try to savor each one. They're soft and chewy and rich, so one piece is very satisfying. Thank you for making these available!

I was so thrilled when I found Walnettos. My brother and I used to purchase these at a old fashioned country store on our way to school. One piece for a penny. Hard to believe where I live now and ask people my age if they remember Walnettos they say they never heard of them. They don't know what they are missing. I refilled my tin with my recent purchase and my husband and I are having a hard time eating just one!

The best caramel ever!
Many years ago, as a child (I am now 83), one of my favorite treats was Walnettos. Over the years, I guess I kind of forgot about them because I did not see them on the shelves. Then several years ago, I started getting the Vermont Country Store catalog, and there they were. I finally gave in to my craving recently and ordered myself an 83rd birthday treat by ordering the Walnettos caramels. I can only say that I remembered exactly just how delicious they are. I am rationing them out to myself every day or so, trying to make them last as long as possible, just as I did as a child. Thanks to the makers of Walnettoes! They are indeed the best caramel ever!!!

A Revelation to my Younger Friends
I grew up with Walnettos. Later, I couldn't find them, for a long time, but a few years ago, discovered them at Vermont Country Store. I buy them occasionally. I eat some, but enjoy just as much sharing them with younger friends who have never heard of them. I always tell them they can get them at Vermont Country Store.

Good with popcorn
I grew up in a small town in Iowa and that is where I met my husband. We would go to the movies on Friday and Saturday nights and eat popcorn and walnettos. What a great combination. I bought the walnettos a few years ago for him for Christmas and I think he almost ate them all before we finished opening our presents. It brings back great memories. We will be married 46 years in April. I think he deserves another bag of walnettos.

I was quite surprised to see that this item is still on the market. When I opened the bag and started eating them I could not put them down, I reordered them but this time put them in hiding to prevent me from being a pig of myself.Brings back many pleasent memories

Best Candy Memory Ever
In the 1950's, on many sweltering Oklahoma afternoons, my brother, sister, and I would enjoy the refrigerated air in the Ritz Theater in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
The afternoon was complete with a little package of Walnettos to share.
My siblings and the theater are no longer with us, but this candy brings back the best memories ever.
