Pearson's Salted Nut Roll is a candy made by the Pearson's Candy Company of Saint Paul, Minnesota and is available in the Midwestern United States. It has a nougat center that is surrounded in a layer of caramel and then covered with salted Virginia peanuts. Pearson's use of reduced lactose whey is unique among nut roll manufacturers[citation needed] and makes this confection easier to digest for lactose-sensitive individuals. The Salted Nut Roll is available in a variety of sizes and has had chocolate-covered limited editions and there have been non-seasonal spin-off products such as the Salted Pecan Roll.

The Salted Nut Roll was introduced by Pearson's during the Great Depression, a year after the PayDay bar, and entered into a market that included various types of nut roll candies. After the introduction the name was changed to the Choo Choo Bar to be distinguishable among competitors, but was eventually changed back.[1]
