Confiserie Stanislas - Bergamot Candies from Nancy, 200g Bag
Confiserie Stanislas Bergamot candies from Nancy are amber-colored hard candies infused with the same bergamot essence that gives earl grey tea its citrusy flavor
These bergamot candies first originated in Nancy, a town in the Lorraine province of France known for its architectural masterpieces like the famous Place Stanislas.
In 1850, a confectioner from Nancy decided to cook sugar with a few drops of bergamot oil from Calabria, Italy. Bergamot is a fragrant citrus fruit that produces essential oil from its peels, commonly used to flavor earl grey tea. The mixture is then poured onto a marble table to cool and cut by hand before transforming into candies.
These are the only French candies to ever obtain the Protected Geographic Indication (PGI) label. This distinction ensures the candies are indeed made in Nancy and with bergamot essential oil.
