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.
