Friday's Favorite French Things

La Vosgienne
This week it's another french sweety. I love the tin. The colours are deep and the design and typography are excellent.
The sweet itself is a bit strange, but it grows on you. They are not mint flavoured, as you'd guess from the colours but have extract of pine.
The back of the tin says "It's n intense and pure flavour, a mixture of pine and honey which gives a deliciously soft sensation of freshness. To taste a La Vosgienne sweet is to rediscover the pleasures of an adventure in the forest"
Owned by Cadbury France, the only disappointment is that it says "made in Spain" on the side of the tin!

I love these sweets. In fact they're finding their way into christmas stockings this year...hopefully they'll go down better than last year's marrons glaces....

Stew, I've tagged you for 'crazy eights' on my blog. Sorry to do this to you. blame that swearing mother....

Marrons glaces must be the french equivalent of Marmite. They are either loved or loathed. Most english people bite into them (coz they look innocent choccy-like) and the reaction is "what the hell is that?"
I love them, and get to eat lots of half-bitten ones!
