Les Anis de Flavigny

L'Anis de Flavigny candies have been produced since the 9th century and are presented in keepsake tins, decorated with beautiful artwork. 

Tradition states that a Roman traveler brought a magic seed back from Syria to modern-day France. The little piece of magic, the aniseed, was later cultivated in the village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerian, coated with sugar and offered to guests as early as 1591. Today, a team of twenty-five villagers still produce the famous Les Anis de Flavigny candy using the traditional methods passed down from generation to generation. Perfumed with natural flavors of orange, mint, licorice, rose, lemon and violet, Les Anis de Flavigny candy will delight today as it has for centuries.

The Anis candy traditionally symbolizes the happiness and fertility that families and friends wish to young married couples, like grains of rice thrown when leaving the church, or like confetti (confetti means candy in Italian). Sharing a candy that holds an aniseed in its heart is a demonstration of love.
