DeMet's Original Turtles got its name when an employee at the chocolate factory remarked that the new candy, with pecans protruding from its side, "looked like a turtle." Because of the candy's reptile looks, when Nestlé acquired Rowntree DeMet's Inc. in 1988 they later changed the name to NESTLÉ® TURTLES.

- DeMets Turtles are my favorite
- Review by Rocco , 9/18/12
I buy Demets Turtles all the time, they are my favorite and my Sister's as well. The last two boxes I have bought from Walmart and there were opened wrappers on the inside and the boxes were sealed before I opened them.
I bought a box on this website and they arrived in perfect condition and all the chocolate was fresh and there were no broken wrapper. Even the boxes were packed nicely and the company gave me a free ice pack.
Demets Turtles are the best and it is nice to be able to get them in good condition.
