The finest, most exquisite way to enjoy a pistachio candy anytime, anywhere. We bring to you this amazing box filled with 13 pieces of this marvelous nougat, each one individually wrapped and the perfect dose of sugar, chocolate and pistachio. It’s made of a delicious almond paste with huge chunks of meaty pistachios. Fruidoraix is distinguished for the premium raw materials used in all their products, which is one of the secrets to their excellence: their suppliers are all local, which guarantees the freshness in the ingredients. Another one of their secrets has to do with tradition and heritage: created in the 17th century in Aix en Provence, this candy store is one of a kind.
In the 1880s, the founder of Frudoraix began selling her acclaimed Calissons d’Aix, but she soon started adding more and more of her sweet delicacies to the carte du jour. In the late 20s, her daughter took over and updated some of the techniques involved, yet left the original recipes intact. Then, in 1957, the latter’s daughter assumed the leadership of the family business and it was she who introduced the nougats, which come in many versions: hazelnut, caramel, pistachio, amongst several others. Finally, in 1992, today’s owner inherited what her great grandmother started more than 100 years before.
And nowadays you can have these French legends almost as easily as any of your favorite, local candy bars. Be sure to have a stash hidden for your personal cravings, because one you start offering these, they'll disappear! These wonderful little nougats make a wonderful holiday gift and stocking stuffers, great to take to the office and share with your coworkers, and perfect to send in a gourmet holiday gift basket. Stock up for treats for Mother's Day, a sweet gift for Dad, or to send to anyone who appreciates sweet little details.
