Abbaye Flavigny Violet Pastilles
This candy, consisting of a grain of anis seed coated in sugar, is perhaps the oldest in France, mentioned in a document as early as 872. In the 17th century, when the candy was manufactured by Ursuline sisters, six months were needed to add and dry the successive coats of sugar. Today, the factory is still situated at the heart of the ancient abbey, but the process is completed in only 15 days. This product comes in a 50g (1.8 oz) tin.
