Violet Les Anis De Flavigny

Known as the French mint, Les Anis De Flavigny are a sweet delicacy with a lengthy history. The recipe used to make the candies today dates back to 1591 and has garnered these naturally-made confections a cult following.

Each candy begins with a single anise seed. The seeds are placed in a large pan with sugar syrup and left to tumble for 15 days, until they are covered in smooth, successive layers of syrup. The candies are then covered in natural flavors, extracted from plants by steam or alcohol distillation.

The suave and mysterious natural violet flavor of these extraordinary candies is sure to awaken your senses!

Ingredients: Sugar, natural flavor, green anise seed, violet extract
