RAISINETS® are sun-ripened, plump juicy California raisins tucked in rich creamy Nestlé Classic Milk Chocolate, which is the reason movie-goers have always loved NESTLÉ RAISINETS. But this candy is not just for the movies anymore!. Introduced in 1927 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. Nestlé acquired the brand in 1984. "Taste the Sunshine."
