Delicious! Mouth-watering! These candies (fruit variety) have become our new Christmas tradition. We first found them last year, and decided to splurge and try them. Wow, are they good! A little pricey, but great for a once a year indulgence. We bought them again this year, and plan to buy them every Christmas from now on! I would buy them more often, if VCS offered free shipping more often :) I highly recommend these.... January 17, 2015
A sugary, crispy/creamy blast from the past! Until last year, I had not had, nor seen for sale, this candy since the 1970s at my grandmother's home at Christmas-time. Have ordered it the past two years now, got the variety the first year and just the fruit flavors this year. Very fresh and good both years and it brought back great memories of Christmas's past at Gramma's! January 9, 2015
Just as I remember! When I was young, I recall these French Creams as being a little bit crunchy on the outside and wonderfully creamy inside, with great flavors. These are nearly identical to those from my childhood, except the flavors are not quite as intense as once they were. Love these, and would recommend them in a heartbeat. January 7, 2015
Just as I remembered from childhood! Some friends and I were sharing Christmas memories, and I told them how I could almost taste the wonderful candies in the box handed out at Sunday school Christmas parties. "Crispy sugary on the outside and creamy on the inside!" I went to a candy store I knew had everything, but not my Sunday school candies. I checked every candy store I could think of, then went to Vermont Country Store online. YES! I was disappointed that the Christmas style was sold out, but when I got the fruit French cremes, they were exactly what I remembered. Thank you! January 5, 2015
Great stuff! I love this store! Great quality merchandise with new integrating with the nostalgic past January 1, 2015
French Candy Creams An exquisite treat to add to the celebration of Christmas! Everyone loved these, and I had a hard time keeping some back for New Years. I actually had to hide some! December 31, 2014
Childhood Memories of French Creams Mother bought the French creams in the 50s when we three girls were growing up no doubt because they were one of HER favorites! But for whatever reason, over the years, nostalgia or something else, they've become one of mine as well. Today she's a 94-year-old retired registered nurse. I purchased a box of the creams for her for our annual family gift exchange. It's extremely difficult to buy for her, but I know this will be well received. December 29, 2014
French Candy Creams Delicious as always. Prefer them in the white paper cups instead of the brown that I received, they are prettier in the white December 27, 2014

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our French Candy Creams …

"When I was growing, my grandmother always bought these at Christmastime when she visited, and they were a family favorite. Up 'til about 10 years ago, one of the major candy makers still produced these. After so long, I finally found them here, and was I glad! I get so tired of the same old candies every holiday, and this is a wonderful change. Crisp and crunchy on outside and creamy inside. Delicious!!!" - Teri, Lake Butler, FL

"Christmas time my father would buy these candies and us 11 children would help him wrap each one in a sort of tissue paper fancy cut square. Some were plain and some had fringes on them, etc. Then we would hang them on the Christmas tree." - Martha , Staten Island, NY

"These are just like I remember from when I was a kid. I surprised my wife in 2010 and she had a great smile on her face. I came back again in 2011 to get them again, and I hope to make this a Christmas tradition for years to come. You should get the catalog, it will take you down memory lane or help you to make new memories." - John Hoffman, Pittsburgh, PA

"I searched for these candies for years after department store candy counters disappeared. In candy-only colors with sparkling crystals outside and rich, creamy flavor inside: Yum! Thanks for finding them! " - Mel W, Cincinnati, OH
