Remember… Proust in Search of Lost Time recalled a childhood memory while eating a Madeleine cookie. We all remember our first milk chocolates, caramels and tender “nougats”.
Candies That Remind Us of Sweet Souvenirs
Violet candies, delicious lollipops, chocolate bars remain forever beautiful childhood memories. We all remember the sweet smell of hot chocolate wafting through the kitchen, an unforgettable praline flavor or our first candied chestnut.
Small dark chocolate bars on a bread slice after school, will make us tenderly smile. The memory of delicious and tender colored marshmallows, live forever in our memories.
Who could forget the huge chocolate truffles tray lovingly prepared by Grandma, at Christmas time or those almonds coated with chocolate which were served at the end of the long Sunday family meal.
There is also the “calisson” from Aix-en-Provence, strange little oval and bicolor candy, tender memory of summer vacation in the south of France, or even the famous candied fruits that Aunt Dollie offered us Wednesday afternoon.
And finally, we do not forget this beautiful chocolate box, unattainable, well hidden in the oak sideboard of the dining room… this box filled with round, oval or triangular chocolates, carefully lined-up, milk chocolate with small crunchy hazelnuts, with chocolates wrapped in gold paper which still remained a mystery to taste, and these unforgettable ganaches and chocolate cherries our parents did not allow us to taste.
