Rated 5 out of 5Â by Roots Child Finally!!!
I am absolutely THRILLED that you have this candy in stock -- I have been looking for this candy for DECADES!!! As a young child, when my sister had appointments at the Mayo Clinic, my mother would buy this candy down at the newspaper store to keep me occupied during the appointments. I have never been able to find it until now!

I've eaten these year's ago and they were much sourer, which is why I bought these.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by M&M Reminds me of my Grandfather
When I was a kid, my Grandfather always had these hard candies and shared them with my sister and me. I haven't been able to find them until I checked the Vermont Country Store. They taste just as good as they did when I was little!

Got a tickle in your throat? Want to stay awake during a boring meeting or presentation? Well, Regal Crown Sour Cherries and Sour Lemons are the answer. They are so refreshing and helpful. My grandsons and I love them.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by adjunct54 Well...
Like most of the reviewers, I was thrilled to find these from The Vermont Country Store. Regal Crown candies (especially the sour cherry) were my absolute favorite candy of all time (and will likely remain so). I'm sure like many, I was also looking for a way to connect to my world in the early 70s, when I still had both of my parents and enjoyed carefree days of summer and playing kickball until I fell over from fatigue. I was so excited I ordered two packages immediately. While the overall flavor was not unpleasant, they were nowhere near the original (and when a candy is your favorite for that long(I'm 54) you remember the taste, the texture, even the feel of the wrapper. They are a good candy in their own right, but the cherry simply didn't have that distinctive cherry flavor that the original had perfected. For the first few seconds, they do indeed taste like a cherry cough drop. And instead of that subtle sour flavor that romanced the tart cherry, it was almost too sour. I am not giving up and will order the lemon next.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pictishchick Almost, but not quite a re-creation of the original
I was a huge fan of Regal Crown Sours as a kid, and was excited to taste them again. Since I purchased the cherry and lemon assortment, my review is mixed. The sour lemon is very close to the original, and almost tart enough, with no off flavor or aftertaste. The sour cherry, which is supposed to have had a recipe redo, tastes like a Ludens cough drop and a Regal Crown sour cherry had a baby. There isn't enough pucker and it doesn't taste like tart cherries like the original. We had a tart cherry tree and the original RC sour had that true fruit flavor. These are nice candies unless you're expecting the exact RC sour experience. I'll buy the lemon again.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by VS Not quite up to par with the original
I was very anxious to try these when someone on facebook told me about this site. I must say that the first taste is very cherry cough drop tasting. Once you get into the candy it gets kind of close to the original taste, but not quite. Not sure I'll be reordering. Also - why does it say you have the assorted rolls but when you click there the lemon comes up? I might try the assorted if you truly have them. Also I remember the grape flavor fondly, is that available?
