Candies & Desserts

Walnetto - Candy favorite of Tyrone, a dirty old man (Arte Johnson) with overcoat and cane which he offered to Gladys Ormphby (Ruth Buzzi), a frumpy old woman with a hair net seen on segments of the comedy variety show ROWAN AND MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN/NBC/1968-73.

Wanna Walnetto?

Sitting on a park bench, Tyrone asked in a gruff, gravelly voice "Want a Walnetto?" His reward?: being smacked over the head with a purse. Tyrone and Gladys also appeared on the Saturday morning animated cartoon THE NITWITS in 1977.

TRIVIA NOTE: The Walnetto is a delicious chocolate covered chewy caramel filled with California walnuts popular since 1920 and sold 5 pieces to the bar in the 1950s and 1960s You can still buy them today from The Vermont Country Store.
