Squirrel Nut Zippers - 4.5 lb plastic tub
SKU: 36912
In Stock
Squirrel Nut Zippers are chewy peanut caramels with emphasis on the "chewy." Make sure those baby-boomer teeth are in good shape. Some of you will remember these as Squirrel Nut Chews. They are the same candy but with a different name. 

This plastic, reusable tub has about 223 pieces and measures over 7 inches high, 8 inches wide and 5 inches deep. The mouth is 4.5 inches in diameter.

Orders placed by midnight usually ship on the next business day.

Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid" story? Share it here.

As a kid there was little fishing pond up the street. People would pay the owner to fish there (he stocked the pond with trout). He kept a little shack near the pond where anyone could buy soda ("tonic" as it is called here) and penny candy. On Saturday I would get my 25 cent allowance and walk up the street to buy my share of penny candy. I would get a small brown paper bag filled with candy, but always splurged the most on Squirrels.

I remember fondly, fighting to get the paper all undone off the Squirrels and if the paper did not all come off, well then you ate a little paper too! They were lovely... all chewy and sweet with nuts. Every time I see and eat them now I can recall a simpler time of sunny days outdoors playing, sticky candy wrappers, good books, and all "the good stuff" that seems to missing from our world now. ~ Lynne from Mass.

Squirrel nut zippers
  I bought this for my husband for his B'day. He was very surprised as this is a favorite from his childhood. Couldn't be a better gift. The quick response from your candy company was wonderful. Thank You

Miss the original
  Each time we order them, they appear to have a different taste. They don't taste like the ones made years ago, but are ok.

Squirrel Nut Zippers
  I used to love Squirrel Nut candies as a kid. I bought a 240 count tub off of this site since I liked the candy so much. I was extremely disappointed to find that Necco has evidently changed the recipe. There are now two different products: Squirrel Nut Zippers (sold on this site) and Chocolate Squirrel Nut Zippers (original recipe) that I cant find for sale anywhere anymore. The candies sold here are NOT the original candies I remember! I hope they make the original again.

  It has been so many years since I've had these, I couldn't remember exactly how they tasted. I really enjoyed having them again and I will give them to class mates at our reunion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  You asked for a review.....her it is. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM. I am extremely disappointed with this item. The candy I received was stale and does not taste anything like the original. The wrappers stick to the candy.....who likes eating paper. I've found that when items are not fresh this will happen. WILL NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY AGAIN. There was also some "pack" of some kind and it states that this was refused by me. Not possible, since it wasn't offered.
