Vermont Country Store Review – Not So Great Last Minute Christmas Gifts

The Vermont Country Store is now offering up to 60% off on various old fashioned nostalgic gifts, and stocking stuffers.  Many items are under $20 including chocolates, and other unique treats you may not have heard of.  Some of which are imported from Europe, and don’t cost that much.  They even offer guaranteed Christmas delivery by December 23rd when you order as late as December 22.  You’ll still pay the standard shipping rate, and they’ll foot the bill for the increased rush shipping.  There’s no minimum order amount.  However it must be items they have in stock rather than something that might be shipped from another supplier.  Simply enter the code “HOLIDAY” when you check out at http://www.vermontcountrystore.com/store/.

The above was my original recommendation.  The first shipment I got from them was packed properly in a large box, and the items were in pristine shape.  The second shipment I ordered was crammed into a box that was too small for the item received.  The boxes of Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes was damaged, and the Champagne-Filled Chocolates were burst with sticky liquid all over the place.  Order from them at your own risk.  Especially if you order your gifts last minute.

In addition they’re sneaky about not telling you how big things are, and the photos on their site are deceptive.  They refuse to give the dimensions of products, and merely list size in ounces which is meaningless.  Their Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes were tiny little bite size things, and their Kalter Hund German Chocolate Biscuit Cake was merely a huge candy bar.  The Champagne-Filled Chocolates were bite size as well.  After complaining about the shipment above via online form they never bothered to get back to me.  The food all tasted good but ultimately their service was unsatisfactory, and their stuff is way too expensive for the amount you get.  Although the price reduction around Christmas made up for that.  Currently all the items mentioned above are out of stock.
