pâtes de fruits

fruity and sweet

Pâtes de fruits d'Auvergne, fabriques à Saulcet, France.

Pâtes de fruits are soft jelly-like squares (pavés) or discs (pastilles) or other shapes that appear every Christmas by the fruit sections in French supermarkets. They are made with fresh fruit juice and dusted with sugar.

Cruzilles in Clermont-Ferrand has been making them since 1880.
