Rated 2 out of 5 by from favorite candy that i can't eat! i opened the bag of mary janes having waited anxiously to enjoy the flavor that i remembered so well only to find that the bag was easier to open than the majority of candies themselves. in desperation i even attempted to include some of the wrapping in hopes that it would "chew out". not recommended! i remember them often being hard to unwrap but not where the wrapping and candy had become one! tried chilling them, warming them even shaving them! very frustrating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mary Jane These Mary Jane candies are very good if one doesn't mind eating a little paper with the candy. I read one review that said to put them in the refrigerator so they would harden and the paper would come off....NOT! I love the taste which is exactly the same as it was when I was a kid but it is very frustrating trying to get the wrapper off. I still love shopping at the Vermont Country Store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from a bit disappointed I remember these from my childhood. Unfortunately I could not enjoy them as the paper was stuck to all the candy and could not be removed. It was the first time I have not enjoyed what I purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nostalgia to share This was a gift to my sister. We used to walk to a Dime Store in the neighborhood with friends. The "penny" candy was appealing. My memory was that she liked the Mary Janes. It was a way to share a happy memory. (I did not see them or taste them as we live far apart.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nostaglia Used to eat these all the time as a child. Figured they had gone by the wayside until I found them at VCS. I get them just about every year. I live in Florida so I only order them in the fall and winter. Got some when it was still warm here and had to put them in the refrigerator for them to harden up and get the paper off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not a good experence for the first time. I dont know if i should be sending you this email because i dont want to ofend your family. Its a minor complaint about my last order. I wanted bay rum life savers but i guess the company does not make them any more. The mary janes we could not get the wrapings off they were stuck to the candy we even had to throw a very few away. As for the hard candy we thought they were filled with peanut butter. I have to take the blame for most of this complaint, i should have order a little better. Dont feel ofended and we will be ordering again. Thank you for your very good products. Respectuffly Gene & Carlene.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliving my childhood I have not had these for at lease 55 years so when I found them I had to get a bag. My youngest daughter and the grand son came over for a visit and now there is two more generations of family that also like them.
