Brach'smaple nut goodies

I bought some maple nut goodies at a pilot travel center her in R ayville, La. They are very hard and they look like they have a white coating on them. You can't even chew them. They just break like peanut brittle. It says on the packaging that the B B Date is 10 12 2018. I have never had a problem with them before. Do you need me to take a picture of how they look and send that to you? They have an odd flavor.

      I love Maple Nut Goodies. They should not look like that. So dissappointed.

    Brach'smaple nut goodies

    My husband and I have loved maple nut goodies for years! Until that past year or more, every bag we buy they taste terrible and are much too hard! At first we thought we got a bad batch but soon realized that it was all of them! Not sure if the recipe was changed or what but they are now disgusting! Please return our old Maple Nut goodies!! We miss enjoying them! Thank you!

      Brach'sbrach’s maple nut clusters

      Today When grocery shopping at Walmart I had a craving for some brach's maple nut...I got home and cracked open the container and they were rich hard when I put 2 in my mouth😳. I felt like I was gonna break my teeth. They usually are all chewy and I was truly disappointed. Would you please consider a replacement?

        Brach'smarshmallow chicks and rabbits

        I am incredibly disappointed with the decline in Brachs candy. I recently bought 3 bags of marshmallow chicks & rabbits for my grandsons... their dad loved them when he was a boy. I am so disgusted! All 3 bags were almost entirely orange, with 4-6 yellow or blue. The yellow and blue were moist & tasty; however, the orange candies were hard & tasteless. It was like the manufacturer knew the orange candies were stale and so they tossed in a few fresh ones to compensate. I expect that these bags will be replaced.

        Get back to your former quality, Brachs... you were once considered the best money could buy!

          Brach'sbeach's christmas nougats mix

          I'm writing in reference to Brachs Christmas Nougats Mix candy. I purchased 4 bags at Christmas, I only opened/used 2. However I can feel the candy thru the bag it's hard and inedible. The code date on the bags is 9/13/18.
          THE NUMBER ON the bags is 7X144J20205, I purchased at Walgreens.
          Thank you for your attention to this matter.

              Brach'sno hide and seek eggs for easter

              All my life- 50yrs- I look forward to seasonal candy- especially Easter for those fabulous hide and seek colorful candy coated marshmallow eggs! An Easter basket isn't complete without them! I searched all surrounding stores and only one had a case and I bought all I could- then there were none! I was so sad☹️😭. My birthday was March 24th and we tried to get some but couldn't find them!
              Did y'all not make any this year or what? Feeling devastated! Please bring them out again next year.

                I purchased a bag of Maple Nut Goodies on 03/27/18 from Rose's Department Store in Brookpark Ohio. The center candy is hard like a peanut brittle. I checked the expiration date to make sure it was not an expired bag. The lot & date are 7J11BB183 Best by 07/11/2018. I have eaten a lot of theses over the years and never had any like theses. I was afraid of breaking a tooth. This is the first time I have ever experienced this with this type of candy. The center has always been chewy never hard. I wanted your company to know this as this may have been a bad batch. I think the center candy may have been cooked to too high of a temperature making it harder then usual. I would like a refund & some compensation for the quality of the candy I purchased. I was extremely disappointed.

                      Appalled at the quality of Brach's 260 pc peppermints. Some not even wrapped. Some were "sticky"...like they had been in someones mouth and then bagged ? One even had pieces of another piece of candy "stuck" to it...even "inside" the wrapper. Think there is a "health issue" involved here ? Bar code...

                      I love Maple Nut Goodies, but the last batch I bought was hard in the middle, like the above comment posted by Daniel. Looking closer, I see that the bag says "crunchy toffee" but I was expecting the same kind as I've been eating for the last 40 years. I want to avoid crunchy candy to save my teeth and will request my money back.

                      Today, April 4th, 2018 purchased 2 bags of Brach's candies. One bag was "Bridge Mix", the other was Maple Nut Goodies, the Bridge Mix was fine. The Maple Numt Goodies was the worst tasting "stuff" in my 82 years of eating anything that I've tasted. Once the shell candy was gone, the rest was like gnawing on a board. NO flavor and hard as a rock The number above the Best By date is 7Jo2BB182 with date of July 2, 2018. These were purchased at Dollar General in

                      Brach'smaple nut goodies

                      Hello,

                      My favorite candy, since I have been a youngster, has been Maple Nut Goodies. Until the past year or so, I never had to worry about the freshness of the product when I bought them. That has really changed. More than a year ago, after buying a few bags and finding them so hard that I could hardly chew them, I just stopped buying them. About a month ago, while shopping in a Walgreens store in Reedsburg Wisconsin, I could not resist the temptation to buy a bag of my old time favorite candy, hoping I would be rewarded with the wonderful "fresh" treat that I so enjoyed for many years. I was very disappointed to find the maple nut goodies to be just as hard and unchewable as the last several bags I purchased more than a year ago. What has happened to this candy? I have heard similar complaints from a couple of my friends. This was a 7 oz. bag, with a "best by" date of 07/07/2018, and the code "7J05BB183". Above the bar code is your Freshness Guarantee...
                      I have most of the bag, minus the couple that I really tried to eat and enjoy. The bag has been in my truck glove box, and when I came across them this morning, I felt I had to write to you and let you know how disappointed I am with the current quality of your product. I really would like to know if this is a change you have purposely made, or what has happened.

                      Regards,

                        I bought a bag of your Maple Nuts Goodies on Easter Sunday April 1, 2018 at Dollar General at Shellman Bluff, Georgia. They were so hard, inside and out that they were not enjoyable to eat. Having a date of until July for freshness they should have not been this hard. I have always loved the Maple Nut Goodies but these were too, too hard. It had a freshness date until July 6, 2018. You are an old and established candy company that I have always liked. Please make them as good as they have always been. I just read many, many comments like mine. Stop trying to change your candy recipe because it sure will cause people not buying your product anymore. Come on give your customers a good product as before.

                            I love this candy but can not get it to break into pieces to chew. The flavor is still good. What has happened here? I checked my bag and there seems to be no holes. Thought maybe I had gotten an old bag. Checked expiration date.
