Not as expected I regret to say that the taste of the sugar overpowers the taste of the candy per se. Frankly, you are eating sugar alone. Margaret 12-13-14 (*;*) December 13, 2014
Disappointed I recently ordered the assorted French Cremes and the Christmas French Cremes, which I have ordered in the past. When I've ordered the assorted French Cremes in the past, the taste was sweet and they tasted exactly like the French Cremes I had when I was a child. However, the batches of French Cremes I received this year did not taste the same. As a matter of fact, they taste awful, there is an overpowering mint and cinnamon flavor that actually burns your mouth. Even the assorted ones, which are usually a sweet fruit flavor, have the same overpowering mint taste. I had to throw them out. Not sure what happened to the original recipe, but if this is the new recipe, I am done buying these for Christmas. December 10, 2014
Disappointed I expected the mints to look like those in the picture. When I opened them to find that they were NOT decorated at all as shown, just mints that were not well shaped, I was very disappointed. I expected the wreaths and Santa faces for the price. November 9, 2014
Over 50 years looking for this! I remember my Dad in Columbus Ohio buying a similar product at Christmas. Each piece was a bit bigger, in the shape of a plum, but the fruit flavors were the same, and the candy was the SAME! Back then the pieces had a hook and my Dad placed them on our Christmas tree & of course, these sugar cream delights did not last long. A brother and sister agree with all this and it really is great these have been found again. Now get the Company to make them up at Christmas as described above & offer them perhaps in a box of a dozen pieces, larger & with the hooks! May 8, 2014
French Creams-Yum....Just Yum As a child, we used to go to the Five & Dime in Marcellus, Michigan and squish our nose against the glass case that held the French Creams. When we were good, our mother would buy my sisters and I a few to share. Haven't had them in over 40 years. They were just as good as I remember. Cracking open the hard sugar shell to have the creams melt over my tongue....the orange are still my favorite. March 19, 2014
So Good! The candies were rich and creamy and so delicious. I bought them as a gift for myself and did not share. I had the assorted. I've purchased French Creams locally, but they didn't taste this good. March 5, 2014
Not the same! Yes, these were French Creams but not like the ones from when I was a kid. They were too strongly flavored and had some sort of an aftertaste. The sugar coating was crumbly and rough. I didn't really want my money back, I wanted the French Creams of my memory! Please fix them. I was so disappointed. I'll happily order them again if they are right. What I got looked nothing like the picture nor did they have a delicate taste like they should. January 17, 2014
I LOVE THEM Three words say it all - I LOVE THEM. I've reordered twice. 'Nuf said. lol January 13, 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
