Mini Calissons - Fruit Flavored

If you like the classic calissons, you will fall in love with the fruit-flavored ones. And if you’ve never tried them before, you should do so right away. Fruidoraix is well known for keeping up with traditions: such is the case that their recipes go back to the early 17th century. The classic calisson is almond-shaped and resembles marzipan in aspect and texture but differs in taste: the calisson has a fruitier feel to it, it’s actually a paste made of melon, orange peel and almonds. It’s coated with white icing that tastes like vanilla. However, these Mini Calissons have a twist to the beforementioned classic recipe and are a little bit more picturesque: they come in colors that indicate the fruit-flavored icing. This packaging brings 12 pieces covered in apricot, lemon, blackcurrant, pistachio and vanilla frosting. A delight for the sight, as well as for the palate.

The exotic combination of flavor and color will make these Fruit Flavored Mini Calissons perfect to surprise your visitors in the upcoming Holiday season. Halloween is first to come, so prepare some orange icing, and you´ll have a great activity to do with the younger ones. You can decorate them with a piping bag and then just add effects with some sprinkles. The children will find delight in these sweet and soft treats, especially after customizing them. Create your own motifs and let your imagination flow, you’ll be an expert by the time it’s Christmas. And for the less younger ones, you’ll be offering them an exquisite, top of the line, absolutely epicurean candy. The mini Calissons make lovely bridal shower and wedding favors, the delicate colors and texture totally apropos for the occasion.

Fruidoraix is a family company, founded in 1880, by the great-grandmother of today’s owner. The only store in the world is located in Aix-en-Provence, France. It’s such a unique gem that it has become a tourist attraction in the commune of Equille. So if you are ever in France, don’t forget to visit the traditional Confiserie Fruidoraix.
