Glace Dessert Apricots
Thank you for USA apricots; taste is far superior.
Would like to see same product with less sugar; so that natural flavor of the wonderful fruit is more prevalent.

Not the same as I remembered
Dear Norm Thompson:
Years ago, my uncle -- my mother's favorite brother -- used to send my mother a box of glace apricots for the holidays.
Since it was so long ago, and my mother passed away in 2013, I couldn't ask her where my uncle purchased them. But I could ask my cousin -- he told me they were purchased from Norm Thompson. So, I placed this order (I think I ordered them last year, too), in the hopes they would bring back some cherished memories of holidays spent with my mother.
Back then, the apricots came from Australia and they arrived in a unique wooden box.
Those apricots were amazing delicacies! We were allowed to eat only 1 apricot each day, so the treat would last longer. They had a strong, natural apricot taste and the glace tasted better, too.
My recollection is that those apricots tasted superior, and the fact that they came in a unique wooden box made them all the more exotic.
These apricots just don't measure up. Sorry! Best wishes, Erica

Not at all what I expected ...
I was so disappointed. I had hoped for something at least as good as the ones from Australia that I have always bought from Norm Thompson. These were a letdown. The texture was not quite right, the flavor not nearly so good. There was extra paper stuffed under some of them, meant to make them look plump and uniform when, instead, they'd been mangled at some point along the line. I wouldn't recommend these. They're not worth the calories.

Good to see these back in the holiday catalog
These products of the USA are equally as good as the divine Australian version Norm Thompson used to carry years ago. Great gifts and swell additions to the home menu.

Will not buy this product again
The Australian apricots we bought from you over the years were truly great! These ones made in USA were not. They came in a box different from your picture - each in a separate brown paper cup. Some looked plump and were plump. Others were half the thickness, but had an extra folded paper cup under them, apparently to "plump" them up. These apricots are nowhere near as good as the Australian ones!

I much prefer the dipped in chocolate. Thought I would like plain ones too. Nope!

Have bought these as gifts for several years. For anyone who likes apricots, they are great. Good with a cup of coffee...
