In 1830, Emelie Afchain was a young teenager and an apprentice at his family’s confectionary shop. He made a mistake while manufacturing candies for his family’s business, for which his mother chatised him. However, to her surprise they ended up selling very well! Customers loved how refreshing and digestive these hard candies were and they were soon known as the “Bêtises of Cambrai”.
