Rated 5 out of 5Â by MaddyM Candy "Ornaments" on Nanny's Xmas Tree
My Nanny would decorate the branches of a little plastic Christmas tree with these tangy melty cremes. She'd let my little brother and me have 2 or 3 for the car ride home after our holiday visit. Heaven.
That was about 65 yrs ago. I have been looking for these cremes for years....decades.
When yours arrived at my house two weeks ago, tears came to my eyes. As I bit into a lemon creme, I was immediately transported back to the warmth and loving atmosphere of Nanny's place....oh so long ago.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Little Sheba A long overdue treat!!!
I am 66 years old and have never tasted a French Cream candy before. When I was a little girl I use to play at the neighbor's house. Every year at Christmas time their mother would put these enchantingly beautiful candies in a covered crystal bowl and display them on their dining room table. I thought that they were the prettiest little candies that I had ever seen! I was taught that it was not polite to ask for things at other people's houses, so I never did.....except for one time. Those French Creams fascinated me to no end and I could not resist asking the mother if I could please have one of those candies. I was so embarrassed and hurt with her response..." I don't think so". We never had candy in a candy bowl at home because my parents could not afford it. I knew that and never asked for my mom to buy that candy. Those French Creams fascinated me so much that I pretended that I had them for my dolls when I would play house. I grew up and the memory of them eventually disappeared because I never saw them again....until your catalogue!!! I put The French Creams on my "Bucket List" and finally crossed it off about 2 weeks ago when my order came from THE VERMONT COUNTRY STORE. See me smiling??? They are everything that I imagined them to be after all these years!! If a little child ever asks you for a piece of candy, please share one with them and remember my story. Thanks.

When I was a kid, you could find these in any dime store candy counter. They were my Mother's favorite. As they became harder and harder to find, I began looking all over for them as I always tried to find some to send to my Mom. She lived to be six months short of one hundred, and the last few years, I just couldn't find them anymore. I was delighted to find them in your catalog. They are delicious and certainly better than the dime store ones. Thanks for an old memory.

When we first received your catalog, I didn't know that I would be walking down memory lane. Especially when I saw and read about the french creams candy. Surely they couldn't be the same as in my childhood. I am 60 now. Just before a holiday, my grandmother would receive a delivery of candies and small toys. I most liked the french creams for their creamy texture,light sugar, and real tasting flavors.
When my box arrived, memories of holidays coming flooding back - THE BIG LONG TABLE filled w/ grandparents, aunts & uncles, sister, parents, cousins. Enjoying our new toys and the real reason behind the holiday. And then, the candies. The french creams of today taste exactly like they did then. Thank you for the memories you make.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Candy! Exactly as I remember them
I was in search of the French Creams for years. I found another candy company in Pennsylvania who made something similar. I asked if they would make the French Creams with all the same flavors I remembered. They said they could not but gave me the name of the Vermont Country Store and I found what I was looking for! They are a bit pricey and for that reason I only bought one box - but this is a good thing because I would eat the entire box in one sitting if they cost any less. Thank you for keeping these on the market!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JudyR Disappointing...
I had purchased the "Christmas Assortment" of these French Candy Creams.....and loved them. After the holidays I ordered the pastel assortment thinking they would be just as good. Wrong! They tasted as though the confectioner had run out of 'flavorings' ! They were terribly sweet (to my taste buds) and not nearly enough MINT taste. Sadly, I found the Old Time favorite of
"Merri Mints" to be similar in their lack of true mint flavors. Again, maybe it's just my taste buds that are faulty.
