For today’s Cinnamon Hot Week entry I’m going to do something a little different and discuss a product I’ve yet to find much information on and one that remains a delicious and elusive mystery; Nerds Hot N’ Cold!
According to those that remember them, Nerds Hot N’ Cold were a hot cinnamon / cool peppermint edition of Willy Wonka’s Nerds candy released for a short time during the late 1980’s.
Typically here on CollectingCandy.com I approach a topic only after I’ve been able to dig up at least a few solid facts or images of a piece, but today I have none of that to share. Instead, the only information I have on Nerds Hot N’ Cold are the anecdotal comments left on various websites by those that remember them fondly.
So in order to craft today’s post, I created a mock-up in Photoshop of what a Nerds Hot N’ Cold box might have looked like, using an existing 1980’s Nerds box from my collection. Here it is:
While there is no hard information and not a single actual packaging image to share today on Nerds Hot N’ Cold, I’m hoping that by including them in our Cinnamon Hot Week coverage, it might bring something new to the surface. Perhaps today’s post will scare up additional reminiscences or a packaging photo or maybe even an actual example of a Nerds Hot N’ Cold box? That’s my hope, anyway.
If anyone out there can help shine some light on the Nerds Hot N’ Cold mystery, please drop us a line, or leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
For today, the search for Nerds Hot N’ Cold is just beginning.
And that’s everything for today’s post. See you next time!
