One like Grandma's
Been looking for a gumdrop tree like our Grandmother had and finally found it in the Vermont Store. I ordered one for each of my siblings and one for myself. So happy to find it and have enjoyed my gumdrops and my tree. Thanks

Making a Tradition...
I have Twin 2yr old Grandchildren that Love to do crafts!! I purchased a kit for each of them. This was a perfect "Memory Making" time for us, that will be a family tradition for years to come ! Watching them choose their color and choose their Branch while we chatted was so much fun ! Not to mention the "chipmunk cheeks" while we tasted each color. Very yummy & the larger Gumdrops made the perfect size ! We added the trees to our Gingerbread House village, we will be coming for more next Christmas !

A Blast from my Past!
My mother brought out our Gumdrop Tree for every holiday and birthday throughout the years while I was growing up. While my brother, sisters and I loved it, I'd forgotten about it until I saw it in your catalogue. This year every family I love received one with a bag of gumdrops. Now there are 4 families, from Michigan to Pennsylvania, I regularly visit who will be happy to see me- if I'm carrying another bag of gumdrops! Seeing this Gumdrop Tree on their tabletops feels so good to me. Thank you!

Good Idea To Tell Who Gift Is From
As ageing grandparents we spend more on our grandchildren than we do on our children. However we do like to send some sign of rememberance to our middle age children as well. Having taken care of the Christmas gifts for our Grandchildren we came across the gum drop tree and knew right away that was what we could order for our grown children. Having them mailed to them seemed like a great idea. However for our youngest son we failed to put who it was from. This caused him some concern when he received a gift from the Vermont Country Store without knowing who it was from. We had a big laugh when he told us about calling the store thinking it was some kind of scam. He was treated very nicely by the person on the phone and explaned that it was a gift from his parents. Our granddaughter was pleased when we gave her the new Winter Catalog of many items that she had never heard of. We have ordered two Bed Spreads in previous months and my wife is pleased to show them off. We appreciate the GREAT SERVICE that we have enjoyed by your company. One day in the future (health permitting) we hope to visit your store.

Oh, Goodie Gumdrops!
Each year, our family has a "mystery gift". We draw names and whomever wins it, provides next year's mystery gift. It's become a bit of a contest the past few years, to try to find unique and surprising gifts.
It was my turn to get the mystery present this year, and I immediately thought of the Vermont Country Store. Fortunately, it was my 3 year old niece who won this year and she absolutely loved this Gumdrop Tree...especially the JUMBO gumdrops. She's already asked her Mom to keep it up all year! Great gift!

The past lives!
Our granddaughter is allergic to nuts - severely - and thus unable to eat many of the Christmas cookies that are traditional in our family. She and I put together the gum drop tree and she knew that those were "safe". On Christmas eve, her 6 yr. old cousin insisted the tree be filled and that the top three gum drops be red to see if Santa came. Of course he did, and loved those red gum drops! Thanks for happy memories for our grands.

Granny's gum drop tree
I had my gum drop tree for 30 years before it finally fell apart from old age. I was thrilled to find that Vermont Country Store had them for sale. I'm very satisfied with my new gum drop tree. It is just like the old one. My only little complaint is that the gum drops that came with it are far too large for this delicate tree and they aren't very tasty. This tree needs the small gum drops, not only for weight but also because it is much prettier with the small candies. Gum drop trees have been a tradition in my home and my mother's before me for a total of 85 years. I ordered one for my daughter too, so the tradition will continue. Thank you Vermont Country Store for providing these traditional gum drop trees.
