Everywhere in the country, local confectioners perpetuate a tradition based on skills and creativity. In northern France, small factories have been making bêtises de Cambrai (a minty hard candy) since 1830. In Burgundy, the anis de Flavigny was first invented in the 16th century ! Near the Spanish border, chocolate coucougnettes are eaten as a tribute to Henri IV. Finally, in sunny Provence, nougat, calissons and sugar-coated almonds play a big part in local gastronomy.
France is one of Europe’s biggest chestnut producers. Chestnut groves are mostly located in four areas : Corsica (south of the French Riviera), Dordogne (east of Bordeaux), Var (in Provence) and Ardèche (near Grenoble). When it comes to making delicious specialties like chestnut cake and chestnut paste, the possibilities are endless ! You will also love our choice of candied chestnuts. These yummy treats are a traditional Christmas gift for French people of all ages. They are often flavored with rum, cognac or vanilla pods, and can be kept in syrup or stored dry.

French companies have been making marshmallows for generations. They call it « guimauve » and they love to create exciting recipes with original shapes, hues and aromas. The original recipe dates back from the end of the 18th century ! Most of the time, made-in-France marshmallows are square-shaped and pastel-coloured.
Chocolate candy is another French favorite. Artisan chocolate makers usually sell it in boxes, which contain an assortment of specialties stuffed with chocolate ganache. Here you will also find sugar-coated almonds with a thin layer of milk chocolate, a perfect treat for Valentine’s day, a baby shower or a wedding.
