We have enjoyed the best French liquor-filled pralines, and these compare favorably with those. The spirits are top quality and the dark chocolate as well. We plan to re-order when they are next available.

I'd like to add the fact that there is a difference in sugar crust versus candy that leaked and dried out. A sugar crust is not a candy that leaked, as there is still brandy intact without the outside being sticky with leakage. I had too many brandy filled choc that I paid good money for only to open the wrapper and they had dried out completely. Buyer beware of this happening!
Brenda, the sugar crystals you described may be the Zucker Kruste (sugar crust) as indicated on the package. The price for this over one-half- pound is comparable with the Asbach Uralt Weinbrand Bohnen, also available with or without Zucker Kruste. The danger with these products is the possibility of empty shells, or leaking content due to improper storage and temperature differential during shipping.
The box of pralines I received was disapponting to me because of the glowing review from Mr. Dwiggins. The brandy filling was lovely, but the chocolate failed to meet my expectations. The pear and raspberry brandy had sugar crystals in it and they were both covered in light or milk chocolate which did not compliment the filling. There was only one praline which had a dark chocolate which was a good compliment to the brandy inside. Even though there were 24 pieces in this box I did not like them well enough to be paying $18-$25 for another box.
These are filled with true fruit brandy aka eau de vie, which is much more expensive than fruit flavored grape brandy or liqueurs. Schladerer is a well respected maker of such fruit eau de vie in Germany, which compares well with eau-de-vie made in Alsace. The covering chocolate also is of very fine quality. The best brandy filled chocolates I have tasted from Germany. They cost more than most from Germany, but are well worth the cost if quality matters to you. Some brandy filled chocolates from Austria and France are even more expensive without being of any higher quality.
