Walnettos were an old-time candy that had a revival due to the TV show Laugh In where the old pervert character Tyrone F. Horneigh, played by Artie Johnson, would bother crotchety Gladys Ormphby, played by Ruth Buzzy, on a park bench and proposition her with the line "Wan-na Walnetto? for which he would promptly get hit over the head with a purse for his trouble.

These can still be purchased on the web. Search for "nostalgic candies" and it should bring up a web site that carries them. I got some for my mom and dad a few years ago and they are actually pretty good. Kind of like taffy with bits of walnut mixed in.

I think these taste great, but they are difficult to find other than online and are usually expensive, so I seldom am able to enjoy them.
