P Whattles? P-Nuttles! I make fun of it, but it’s really a pretty cool name for a candy.

Sometimes I forget about the blessed simplicity of some classic candies.

imageP-Nuttles are one of those. Turning over the simple orange foil package I looked at the ingredients: peanuts, sugar, butter, salt. That’s it!

The uneven looking little morsels are simply panned peanuts coated with a crunchy toffee. Sweet with a solid salty hit, they’re dependably tasty. No worries if you come across a nut that’s lost its toffee coat, that means more crunchy shell at the bottom of the package.

These are great to put on ice cream or of course a good summertime sweet that won’t melt.

After my bad peanut experience yesterday, I was very happy with these. Not a bad nut in the bag, and considering how many that was, those are good odds. The only problem I have with them is that I have no idea where to buy them. I’m going to have to keep my eyes open for sightings in the wild, but at least I know I can get them online. I wouldn’t be surprised to find them at 99 Cent stores, as I’ve often found Cup-O-Gold there.

  4. The only place Ive ever found these is in various vending machines. Heh. I never thought of looking in the nut isle. Sounds like a good place to start though.

  6. I first learned of these in school, where we had to sell them to raise money for something or other.

    I haven’t seen them since.

  9. I find P-nuttles at Big Lots! I go every week now and buy peanuts, sunflower kernels and their amazing spicy mix!!! These are the best and totally addictive. Thank you P-nuttles.

  10. P Nuttles would be good if they weren’t loaded with salt! My 44 oz jar has some product that tastes like eating rock salt for a water softner.

  13. I bought a bag and since I have dentures I couldnt enjoy them but my 3yr old and husband only had about a handfull and both complained of stomach aches afterwards and at around the same time. Idk what that’s all about, but I started looking up recall info and found this blog. They are really tasty.. I just cant figure out why my baby and husband both feel ill after the only thing they both consumed was p nuttles butter toffee peanuts.
