Rated 2 out of 5Â by V24 Not as advertised
These are nice peppermint sticks. No cream filling.
I was thinking they were old and dried out, but now, after seeing so many others with the same comment. They just are not what was listed in the catalog. I will take to work and share since they are not the treat I was remembering.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mutt Best hard candy with soft center!!
I have had many products from the Vermont Country Store both large and small. So two bags of this candy might seem a small item, this candy makes up for size with taste. These Peppermint Cream Straws are full of flavor and they are money well spent.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by susanf not what I had hoped for
I ordered from you for the first time and was pleased with all the products I received except I was very disappointed with the peppermint cream straws. Growing up, at Christmas, my mother always had these lovely peppermint straws filled with a soft cream center. I have been searching for these for the 10 years since she has passed away and was always disappointed. Your description of this product made me think that I had finally found them. While the peppermint flavor is actually very nice, there is no creamy center. Your description is deceiving. The package says candy shell with a creamy mint center. I do notice that on this request for a comment you now describe them as a "soft mint finish".

I am age 61 and a favorite dessert made at Christmas was made with these mints. Nothing else works in the recipe like these do! I was thrilled to find these online! Our family has been making it for 55 plus years. Thank you!!!

I always buy cream filled peppermint straws at this time of the year. These have no cream filling in them. A waste of money for me.

It seems the recipe may have changed. I look forward to these every year, but this year they seem different. Definitely not enough cream filling.

These mints were not as described. They were plain mints with no cream filling. I would not order them again.

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Peppermint Cream Straws …
"In 1990 Our Mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor. All 7 of my siblings helped to care for her for about 6 months before her death. One of my sisters brought in a bag of Mint Cream Straws from our local grocer. We loved them and without them we would not have made it through some very tough nights. What was once fairly easy to find is now an extreme treat. I searched for them last year and finally found them with Vermont Country Store. We all get together each year at Christmas to share memories which include the Mint Cream straws. Thanks for the memories." - Kathy Hatton, Richmond, KY
