The Most Special Gift    by : Connie Sauer

"The Parrot has been sending candy to my mother for me for many years now. This candy has been the most special gift she ever receives from anyone.

If there is one store in Helena I truly enjoy doing business with it is The Parrot! They always have been, and ...."  Continued....


A Box of Parrots    by : Janet Lowry

"Congratulations on owning on of the most fun places I have had the privilege of visiting!

When our turn came to leave Hawaii we choose Montana. Through the years our attachment to Montana has been strong, our two younges...."  Continued....


A Mother's Fondness for The Parrot    by : Kristine Larson

Her favorite treat when there in person was a sundae with warm chocolate sauce or else a box of nuts and chews w...."  Continued....


Our Family Loves The Parrot!    by : Catherine Ortwein

"Our family loves The Parrot! Especially the "parrots." I mailed a box of them to my daughter in San Antonio for her early April birthday. Although the package was labeled "fragile," the postman left them on her doorstep for the day. When she discovered the melted mess, my daughter called Wendy at The Parrot. Wendy sympathized with her and sent me an apology along with the price of the parrots plus...."  Continued....


Always Special    by : Nancy Corrigall
