I want to start out by stating my sister, my mother and I can’t get enough Turtles. They are by far, HANDS DOWN the best tasting chocolate candy and have been for so long. My mother buys these religiously for us. They are not cheap but she manages to keep us in good supply.
- DeMets Turtles are my favorite

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.
