Calissons – the best snack from the south of France

From my frequent trips to France, I’ve found that French people typically don’t snack like Canadians. But if they do snack, they have a lot choice including very delicate treats like “Calissons” from the south of France. They are made of marzipan or almonds with a fruity melon-like flavor. Calissons are traditionally associated with the town of Aix-en-Provence and, according to Wikipedia, the world supply of calissons are still made in the Provence region. In addition to be nice bite-size treats, they’re also great for presents!
