The Pearson's Salted Nut Roll entered the candy market at the height of the Great Depression. Originally called the Choo Choo Bar, the salty and sweet combo brought a little bit of happiness to the country when it needed it most.
Fortunately for us, we can still buy Pearson's Salted Nut Rolls, and this is a Fun Size version that comes with approximately 30 pieces per pound. Each unit weighs 0.50 oz. and measures 3.5".
Never tried one? Here's the deal: salted Virginia peanuts cover a layer of golden caramel, all wrapped around a creamy nougat center. Sounds like heaven. That's the Pearson's Salted Nut Roll. Enjoy.
