Maison Bremond’s calissons are a traditional sweet treat from Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. Often given as a gift, these pretty petal-shaped candies are a Provençal speciality that has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. Presented in a diamond-shaped box, these fruity calissons are a lovely gift for a friend or dinner party host.
Maison Bremond’s calissons recipe has remained the same since 1830: a soft, golden mixture of candied melons and crushed Provençal almonds on a thin wafer base. Each candy is then topped with a thin layer of royal icing which gives them a sweet, crunchy coating. Serve them after dinner with coffee or enjoy with a mid-morning cup of tea.
About Maison Bremond
For over 188 years, Maison Bremond has sought to share the finest ingredients of Provence with the world. Founded in 1830, their passion has been passed down through father and son, expanding into a sustainable enterprise with a commitment to protecting the family land for future generations. They work closely with farmers to revive forgotten traditional crops and local handicrafts, alongside supporting projects that seek to protect the Provençale environment.
