Would get these in candy boxes in the 50s as a child. Looked all over for them, found some on Vermont Country store but very pricey! My husband found these at Olivers and bought some for me! They are excellent and I love them. Will be ordering more! Much better price too!
My dad has loved these since he was a kid but we haven’t been able to get them anywhere near us (Canada) for years. Was so pleased to have found Oliver’s website. Ordered them for Christmas and they arrived quickly and in perfect condition - they were even wrapped which was a nice touch. The candies were absolutely perfect. A little crust on the outside but soft on the inside so they melt in your mouth. Exactly as my dad remembered them. So pleased and will definitely be ordering again.
5 stars for the product. 1 star for the condition they arrived in. The box has a clear cover and it was covered with a layer of sugar dust on the inside. The reason for that is because the creams were all over in the box even though they’re supposed to be in little paper cups. The paper cups were squished and most of them were empty. These creams are very tasty but they do not travel well. Not able to give these as a gift.
Ordered these many times. They are very good. Got kind of addicted to them they are that great.
We used to be able to find french creams in candy shops in Scottsdale, AZ. but they have mostly disappeared & it has been a number of years since they could be found. Discovered Oliver's thru a search engine a few years ago & have been a customer ever since. Everything ever ordered has been outstanding. We are especially grateful to still be able to enjoy these absolutely delicious French Creams. Great service & fast shipping add to our satisfaction - thanks to ALL at OLIVER'S!
Just as I remembered from my childhood in Ohio. We had an old fashion bakery in our town and during the holidays, they would always have French Creams and I remember my Mom would always take us to the bakery and she'd buy a dozen or two of theses candies for Christmas along with the old fashion ribbon candies. It was a sight to behold, all the wonderful delights of a real bakery!! These are JUST like what I remember as a kid and excellent price too!! Thank you Oliver's for bringing back some wonderful Christmas memories!! I will be a customer from now on!!
My Mom remembered enjoying these with her parents when she was a child, so I was excited to be able to try them for the first time. They are amazingly good. We will buy again.
Loved these cream candies. They were the best I have ever had. They were so fresh and so flavorful. They melted in my mouth. I would definitely buy these again. Excellent candies, very yummy and they did not last long.
Thank you so much for bringing back one of my favorite childhood candies, and these are just like the ones I remember! What a wonderful treat for my family, will order again.
As a child in the '50s and '60s, our favorite Christmas candy was Brach's French creams. As time went on it became harder and harder to find them until eventually they were no longer manufactured. After many years of searching for anothel candy maker I was thrilled to find Oliver's through the Vermont Country catalogue. Now it's a new yearly tradition to place my order here. Thank you, Oliver's!
I haven't had these creams since I was a child growing up in the 50's-60's! We always had them for Easter and Christmas in various shapes. A local candy store in New Castle, PA (Sotus) had them and my brother and I loved them! I can't tell you how happy I am that my daughter got me these for Christmas this year. They are nowhere to be found locally. Thank you so much for a delicious treat and I certainly will have to refill them when they are finished!
I have been looking for this type of candy for over 25 years. The only place you could find this candy was 200 miles away from from me and sold at a Lazarus Department Store in Columbus, OH. So it was a real treat to get. These Fruit Creams melts in your mouth and the taste is heavenly. Originally, I ordered this just for the lime flavor, I thought I'll throw the rest of them in the garbage. But after trying the other flavors, the only thing that was thrown in the garbage was the empty box. I do wish you could order just a box of the Fruit Creams in just one flavor - LIME. (that was the only flavor I'd eat when I was younger) As long as you keep making them, I'll keep buying them. Thank you.
