Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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! February 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 95 year old mother LOVED these creams. My mother loves the "old fashioned" candies from your catalog. I am sure they are a reminder from her early days. At 95 years of age there are not many items like this that still agree with her. But she simply LOVED these candies. THANK YOU for making them available. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermont Country Store's Response to my Mistake A couple of months ago, I accidentally ordered your "Holiday" French Creams. I called and asked if I could exchange them for the "Fruit" French Creams that I have ordered many times before and that I have only found at your store. After I was told I could exchange them, I remembered that I had already opened the box, so I told them never mind since it was my ordering error. But the young man I spoke with told me to wait and put his supervisor on the phone. After asking me a couple of questions, she said that she would send a replacement order free of charge! I was so pleased! It's been many years since I've had such wonderful customer service. You may rest assured that I will always remain a loyal customer. Thank-you! October 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Granular sugar with a hint of flavoring I was so looking forward to the French creams, but there was nothing creamy about them, just very grainy with only a hint of flavor. I threw them in the garbage as I would not eat them or offer them to another. Money down the drain. I would compare them to a sugar cube with a drop of color and only a dash of flavor. Very disappointed. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by decadent! So pretty, even better tasting. All the flavors are good. This would make the perfect gift. June 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Gift Always get a box of these for my girlfriend who loves them and remembers them from when she was a child. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my order I recently saw a catalog of your store, looked through it and t brought back so many memories. I did place 2 orders for the candies of my childhood, love them, looking through your catalog is like going to the store itself. I love it, thank you for bringing back my childhood April 21, 2015

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
