I agree with the other reviewers, Necco has totally ruined a childhood favorite. Squirrel Nut Zippers are now no more than run-of-the-mill caramels. Also the 240 count are sticking to the wax paper. I wasn't going to mention that since I need the fiber but I thought you might want to know. BRING BACK THE NUTS.

I well remember these Squirrel Nut Zippers in their original form from my childhood. Thought I would try them again since I still have a few of my own teeth remaining. The bits of nuts made a great difference between this candy in the 60's and this castrated recipe today. But it is a light, sweet and chewy caramel even if it has been altered, but it would be more descript to name them Eunuch Caramel Chews and let the customer know.

And...who names a band Squirrel Nut Zippers? ? You're screwing up Google searches for my fav treat.

After years of thinking these weren't made anymore my wife saw a program on TV that mentioned Squirrel Nut Zippers. Well, needless to say, I immediately went to our friends Amazon and did a search and found these delights once more. Made sure that I order two tubs of 240 pieces each (can never have enough backup of a favorite). They're good but seem to have less nut pieces than I remember. That's why a four rating rather than a five.

Not as hearty as the original squirrel nuts I was hoping for. As other reviewers mentioned, it does not contain the same number of nuts which gave it a chewy, nougatty kind of crunch that I loved. However, it still brings back the nostalgia and the pieces are fresh. Probably will not reorder.

I have no recollection of Squirrel Nut Zippers as anything but a decent swing revival band from the nineties, but I understand that the confectionery of the same name is over a century old, and is bound to have some established fans. I had heard anecdotes that it was a very hard candy, somewhere between toffee and brittle, but these are soft as Kraft caramel. The initial mouth feel struck me as a little waxy, and I wasn't too crazy for it, but it broke down quickly with a few chews. I'd describe the texture as smooth, with the graininess of coarse ground peanuts, and a very sweet flavor, like a peanut caramel with a slight vanilla finish. It also separated easily from its wax paper wrapper just fine for me. The tub came with a very clear freshness date sticker affixed to its lid, leading me to believe that prior complaints about the wrapper not separating or the candy's hard texture are probably related to batches which had gone stale.
I can't compare this to the original candy, but the peanut was definitely there, and it put me in mind of a softer, slightly less rich Bit-O-Honey, which is one of my old favorites.
For me, part of the charm is the name of the candy, which is why it's kind of a shame that the red printing on the yellow wrappers is as hard to read as it is.
In short: pretty good as caramel treats go, look elsewhere if part of your fondness for this treat is the way it would weld itself to your teeth, as it now has a clean finish, and plan on sharing them with a big group of friends. 240 little Zippers add up to a whole lot of candy.

Couldn't wait to get my second order! I've had them all my life but never had them stick to the wrapper like these. Or be this hard. By it's nature, this candy is gooey but this is ridiculous! It was obviously overheated at some point. They are also harder than I have experienced in the past. The upside is that I don't eat as many because I have to peel the sticky torn wrapper away from the candy. I give it a 3 because I love the candy and will probably buy it again. But from someone else. It will likely be tough and stuck to the wrapper again, but somehow I will probably enjoy it more, maybe because I have to work so hard for it.

If you think these are the Squirrel Nut Zippers that were sold in the 60s and 70s you will be disappointed. These are made primarily out of artificial ingredients and taste nasty. On top of that, they don't have pieces of nuts in them either. Save your money.

Family favorite. Been around for decades. Not to mention it has peanuts listed first... unusual for a candy as almost always sugar is listed as the majority of the candy. More peanuts than sugar means it's a healthier alternative. Small pieces means u can satisfy your sweet tooth with about 2 pieces which ia a lot less sugar than a can of pop!
