Looking for the Pearson's Salted Caramel Nut Goodie...

So I tried one of these a few months ago, and found them to be far tastier than the original. Now that I'd like to give them as gifts in MN care packages, I'm not able to track them down, even in St. Paul, where they are made. Any one seen them for sale recently in the Twin Cities?

Thanks so much...

      This is from the website:
      Budget Mart
      Cub Foods
      Econo Foods
      Festival Foods
      Fleet Farm
      Happy Dan's
      Holiday Station Stores
      Oasis Markets
      Rainbow Foods
      Sam's Club

    2. I think it would be best for you to contact them directly - straight to the source, so to speak. They could help you with a special order or point you out to a local retailer. My uncle was a salesman for Pearson's around 60 years ago, not much help now though...:(

      Good luck! A sea salt version sounds delicious.

      Please report back if you get some good info.

      1. It's been a while since I lived in Minneapolis, but I wonder if Lund's/Byerly's might be able to help you. My Byerly's store regularly carried the original flavor one. My other thought is the same as already suggested, to contact Pearson's directly. Good luck!

          Byerly's has both original and caramel by the case.

        2. If you click on the Purchase link on the Pearson's website, it takes you to a 3rd Party retailer and they are the second option on the page:

          1. I did call the factory and spoke to a friendly and helpful employee. Kyra1 was right in that Lunds/Byerly's is the most likely store to have it. Otherwise, there's the Love from MN gift shop at MOA and Roseville and maybe even Holiday or SuperAmerica gas stations.

            Part of the thrill and the frustration of Pearson's candy is that you never really know where and when you'll find them. In any case, the sea salt nut goodie is a like a giant peanut turtle and should take a place a pride among our state's food stuffs!

            Thanks for all your suggestions...
