Vintage Sweets: Pearson's Salted Nut Roll

Available since the 1930's, Pearson's Salted Nut Roll remains one of the  tastiest, if somewhat elusive, treats on the market. Apparently prolific in the Mid-West (because Pearson's Candy Company is based in St. Paul, Minnesota), in New York City I had to go to a specialty shop, It's Sugar, to find one of these classic bars. It's such a simple, perfect combination. Light creamy nougat is enrobed in a thick layer of buttery caramel, and then rolled in full salted peanuts. If you can get your hands on one of these, it's well-worth revisiting.

  1. Oh yum!!! And there happens to be a It's Sugar store within a 7 minute walk in Emeryville. However, I am afraid to go in there because the aroma might cause me to become a diabetic.
