These are round orange balls called butternuts.
I would say they are a boiling with a hard shell and a soft chewy centre.
They have a buttery taste and no nuts are inside at all.
A lovely sweet made in Scotland. So a true Scottish Classic.
Great as a wedding favour or ideal in sweet buffets. Mainly due to the amazing colours.

Such a pleasant surprise as so hard to get butternuts & they tasted just as they did over 40 years ago

It's been decades since I've been able to find these - I used to buy them with my pocket money back in the 1960's when I visited my Granny in Leven.
We would journey from the Midlands during the summer and Granny always greeted us with a glass of Irn Bru and I'd walk to the wee shop over the road for my annual treat - a wee paper 'poke of butternuts.
My happiest memory ever. Thank you for reminding me - my English children love them too as do they adore Irn Bru!

Over 70 discerning people tried these as part of a launch of a product that had an orange identity,hence many kilos of these orange sweets. I couldn't suck for more than a few seconds, others ate them by the handful. Think it's a regional thing! I found them soapy, I was expecting tart sharp orange sweets. However service, packaging and helpfulness 10/10

as a Scottish exile, living in the wilds of England, it was wonderful to find a taste of 'hame' Thanks from a grateful Scots lass
