More about Calissons d'Aix: in 1420, when Provence was still a kingdom of its own, the king of Naples and Count of Provence, roi Rene, got married. Decades of wedded bliss later, his wife died, and rather than stay a swinging 44-year-old bachelor, he managed to find a 22 year old bride just a year later. The problem was that her dad arranged the marriage, and she wasn't thrilled. So Rene's chef decided that he'd invent a candy to cheer her up. That's how the calisson was born!
