Seeking CREME FILBERTS a.k.a MOTH BALLS

I'm looking for a source (online/mail order) for a candy called creme filberts, a.k.a., moth balls. It's a whole filbert coated in fondant and panned to a dull white exterior. I recall them as being pretty hard.
I haven't seen these for years and would dearly love to find them again. I've googled, to no result. I've also looked on the retro-candy websites.
Anybody seen these? Anybody even remember them??
I used to sell those when I worked in a candy store back in the 70's.
If anyone has them I bet the Vermont Country Store does.
There is a candy store in Kittery Maine called Yummys that has all kinds of old fashined candy that you will not find elsewhere. I am sure they have a website or you can get their phone # through information. If they do not have these, I doubt you will find them anywhere. There ads say more than 10,000 candies on display. It is an amazing place.
