Some ideas for confectionery to offer:

  • Nougat: Prefer nougats with the name “Nougat de Montélimar” to be able to taste the traditional version. Small preference for the tender version.

  • Fruit paste: In several shapes, cubed, round or even fruit-shaped, they will seduce you with their high fruit content and melting texture.

  • Chocolate-covered dried fruits : Whether it’s covered grapes, almonds or hazelnuts, chocolate-covered dried fruits go perfectly with coffee.

  • Flavored candy : Made from cooked sugar and natural flavoring, candies flavored with violet, fruit, honey or even poppy will accompany you during your gourmet breaks.
