These are one of those nostalgic candies. I remember eating them with my parents and now our son is eating them with us. They were always something I looked forward to getting in my stocking on Christmas, my Easter basket, or while out trick or treating. They have a sweet and sour flavor. You can either suck on them or I love to just chew them right up. Each color has a distinctive flavor and I can't pick just one as a favorite. I find They are hard to come across these days in stores, so I'd recommend ordering online.

These are so nostalgic. I prefer the smaller boxes that you receive during Halloween time because these bigger boxes are just too much candy for me. I don't eat these as often but they are really good. I would recommend these to everyone who likes this type of candy

These beautiful little beauties came out in the 1980’s and honestly have a place in peoples hearts young and old. There are so many flavors and products with nerds (no seriously google it) it’s hard not to know what they are, but let me break it down for you. Let’s start with the core (because it’s on the inside that counts) they start with whole sugar crystals, which get tumbled around in corn syrup over and over until you get this delicious sour, sweet, itty bitty piece of candy. Growing up I would crunch and munch on these babies until my tongue was multi colored and I could spit rainbows. Now I love to put a small handful in my mouth and just let the candy coating melt until I reach the sugary treasure beneath. I dare you to only have one handful.  Rainbow Nerds

Why are these so much better than the normal dual flavor boxes?? These are so sour and tangy and delicious. Love the white ones mixed in. This box is huge and is way more than anyone could eat in one sitting I don’t think I’ve ever finished one of these huge boxes!! Good for sharing :)

I am such a huge Nerd lover. Since I was younger I just always remember loving nerds so much, and as I have always said my excuse for eating them and loving them is because of the fact that a nerd needs their Nerds.

I can’t say enough good things about Nerds! My teeth probably haven’t loved Nerds, as they’re hard little bit sized pieces of sugar, but they’re absolutely delicious and super addicting! I literally can’t put the box down once I open one it’s a problem! :)

Another great candy from this company and if you get the theater box, usually around $1, and so affordable. Our grandsons are always wanting these and love to eat them with all the different colors. Great product and price

Nerds happen to be my favorite candy in the whole world. I could eat them all day long and not take a break. I eat them every chance that I get with still trying to not lose my adult teeth in the meantime.

I think that this is the best candy from the Wonka line. This is an affordable candy and they’re so much fun to eat. The flavors are good and the packaging is cute. I would recommend these to other people!
