Where to buy calissons?

Calissons are traditional sweets from the Aix-en-Provence region. They are made from crushed almonds, candied melon and sugar and are known for their iconic diamond shape. In classic or mini format, they will delight your desire for delicacies.

You may already know these sweets tasted during a trip to Provence, with friends or thanks to a gift you received. However, you don't know where to buy calissons in Paris or other regions.

Do you want to buy quality calissons, made in Aix-en-Provence and you are not from the region? Nola brings them to you. Handcrafted and without artificial flavoring, you can buy mini-calissons d'Aix made according to the recipe for calissons d'Aix-en-provence. It does not benefit from the name because the format is not respected in its mini version.

To go further, we give you some advice for choosing your calissons:

  • the appellation: There are calissons from Provence and Aix-en-Provence. The first do not respect the recipe specifications 100%. The percentage of almonds can be different for example.
  • manufacturing : the best calissons are made using a traditional and artisanal process to obtain superior quality.
  • color: the original color is white, the color variations do not respect the original recipe.
