Provence Calirons - Fruity Round Calissons - Maffren Canteperdrix

Calirons, are a round version of the famous almond shaped Calissons, a quintessential Provence treat. Those luxurious candies combine almond paste, melon and sugar, topped with a crunchy layer of royal icing. The texture is similar to marzipan but with a fruitier taste, usually melon-like (although maybe not for purists, there are also citrus variations). 

The calirons in this box are topped with colorful fruity icing with lemon, orange and raspeberry flavors and also traditional plain white icing. 

This candy likely originated in Italy and was introduced in France around the 15th or 16th century along with the introduction of almonds as a crop. 

Net weight: 3.88 oz (110 g)   14 calirons per box
