These were around in the late '80s. I remember them well. They were like regular Nerds, but instead of being fruit-flavored, one side of the package held Hot (red, cinnamon-flavored) Nerds, and the other side of the box held Cold (light blue, wintergreen-flavored) Nerds. I used to LOVE these things! They tasted great when you put some of both flavors in your mouth at once. Sadly, they disappeared in the '90s.

These were my absolute favourite Nerds as a kid... I've been trying to find them ever since... Is it possible to order them from anywhere, does anyone know??

Yes! Hot and Cold nerds were great. But the best were Red apple / Blueberry nerds. I had them twice in 1985. Does anyone recall them??

I would love just a photo of the Hot & Cold Nerds box... so few people seem to remember this flavor. It would be great to have photographic evidence of it's existence. (aside from you few, who thankfully, support my insistence that this product did actually exist!)

I'm so glad to see others remember and loved these nerds. There was a "Playco" about a block from my house and I would go there a few times a week to get these. I remember thinking they were "perfect" and I quit buying the fruit-nerds pretty much altogether once these came out but for some reason they only stuck around for about a year. I hope one day Wonka brings these back!

The cold side were actually peppermint not wintergreen

Charlie - the cold side was indeed wintergreen. At least it was in the boxed that I got. Perhaps they changed it to peppermint a little down the line, but I don't remember, as I only bought the Hot/Cold mix two or three times.
