Thank you, Salted Nut Roll


The Pearson's brand Salted Nut Roll. What a delicious snack. I've always been a fan of nut rolls. Many years ago, I remember my mom buying a couple nut rolls at Pac N Save (she was a big fan herself) as a reward for a productive shopping trip. The legion of Salted Nut Roll fans is what I would consider a fairly small niche group in the candy bar world. You don't see too many magazine advertisements, TV commercials, or catchy advertising campaigns for the Salted Nut Roll.

Anyways, a kind soul in SSG Johnson's life has been sending nut rolls over here in care packages for awhile now, and SSG Johnson has been kind enough to share a nut roll or two with myself and a couple other lucky souls in our S-1 shop. I have come to admire the Salted Nut Roll even more so recently, due to it's sudden re-emergence in my life. Not only has SSG Johson been receiving Salted Nut Rolls, but king-size Salted Nut Rolls. Until now, I didn't even realize that a king-size version (two full-size nut rolls in one wonderful package of goodness) existed. Now I do, and I am thankful. So today, I offer this blog post as a way to say thanks to the Pearson candy company, who has been producing this delectable snack since 1933. Your Salted Nut Rolls are a highlight, a bright spot in my dreary Iraq existence and for that I say thank-you. Thank you Salted Nut Roll, for everything you do.

I second the greatness of the Salty Nut Roll, and B-Rad's kindness for sharing with the group. You can eat one for breakfast, lunch, supper, and anywhere in between. Nicely done Hammer.

Nice post, but I check your page out at least 3 times a day, looking for another interesting story to read, and the first thing I see is a picture of a Salty Nut Roll. It's time for a new post.
