I have purchased two bags of maple but goodies from a dollar general store in Ashland Ky. These candies have been a favorite of mine fire years but when I got home and open bag the candy was so hard I couldn't buy or chew it. The candy also had sold taste like the nuts were old or something. So I opened the other bag and the same experience. Checked dates both were still good dates.

    My husband bought two bags of the Brach's Mable Nut Goodies from a Dollar General store with best by date of 11/25/2017. I know this brand of candy is very good because I've eaten them when I was a young girl growing up. When we opened the first bag, the candies was so hard in the middle that we couldn't hardly bite through them. We open the second and found that they were as hard as the ones in the first bag.

    Maple not good has been a favorite of mine for a long time. My grandsons brought me over a bag for my 71st birthday, yet when we got in them they were very hard. Don’t take away the recipes of something that has done you well for years please. Thank you respond to Richard showman and yahoo.com. Thank you

    Bought a bag of Maple Nut from Walmart size 14oz bag. They where hard and looked like they where in a place of heat. The outer coding was flat and no
    taste what so ever. When bitten into very hard and a stale taste. This is one of my most favorite candies for the last 60 years. So something happened in shipment from the factory to the warehouse or from the warehouse to the store. I have had this candy and it always has been fresh. So not happy but tossed it out. Product number if it helps. 4142005149 bar code and exp date 06/12/18. 7X12AA112.

    @C larence I believe I had the same complaint a year or two ago about the maple nut goodies. Thought they were just old because they were so hard! What’s the “freshness guarantee”?

    I am very disappointed. I bought a bag of maple goodies to share the Great Taste with my wife and children. Opened them up past them out and they about broke our teeth trying to eat them. I don't want a refund, just a fresh bag so they can try them and I can enjoy the same great taste that I enjoyed as a child. Product code on bag is 8A24BB182. Best by 10/24/2018.

    Please bring back the old Maple nut goodies! The ones I have bought within the last year have been so hard you cannot eat them. My sister and I have been eating these for years and we are on the verge of going into withdraw due to not having our Maple nut goodies. There are off brands of these out there, but they do not compare to the ones that Brach's used to sell. Please make two old ladies very happy before we die and bring back the great Maple nut goodies.

    What a shame, I have the same complaint as the others. Candy was so hard, I had to throw it out for fear of breaking my teeth. Best if use by date 10/10/2018. Brach must have change something, I never experience this problem. 8A10BB182.

    I bought a bag of Brach's maple nut goodies and it's like biting on a rock, this is the second time we have had this bad experience. I thought they might have been outdated but the best by date is 4/29/2019, code is 8G30BB182.

    What on earth happened to the maple nut goodies? This new version is revoltingly hard and is not at all enjoyable anymore. It now holds zero appeal and by the looks of it, I'm certainly not alone. Well that sucks! Another classic candy down the tubes because someone decided to update the recipe. Yuck!
