Le Roy Rene Calisson Creme


Calissons are a traditional French candy consisting of a smooth yellow paste of candied fruit and ground almonds topped with a thin layer of royal icing. Calissons have a texture similar to that of marzipan, but with a fruitier, distinctly melon-like flavour. Calissons are often almond-shaped.

This spread by Le Roy René is a creamy version of classic "calissons" from Aix-en-Provence — same ingredients (crystallized melon and orange peel mixed with ground almonds), same grainy texture, same golden colour, same sweet, subtle, delightful taste.

It's simply luscious spread on toast, added to crepes and cakes, or in natural yogurt.
