Very delicious fruits de pates!
I find these confections to be almost perfect. My one reservation is the presence in the raspberry flavor of very tiny seeds. (And you thought I wouldn’t notice …)
I’m really enjoying these jellies, and the delighted reaction of our friends to the samples we’ve given them to taste. Outstanding!
They were very good, but had more sugar on the exterior that detracted from the flavor for me.
I don't know why finding excellent Pate de Fruit is so hard. I recall having them first time about 10 years ago and you got FRUIT and then sugar..now I get a lot of sugar and then some fruit flavor. The apricot is nondescript but the raspberry is better. But I think they're fine, if you've never tasted them in Paris.
And I know I could make them-the reason I pay a premium is that it's a lot of work and in the winter there is really no great fruit. They are best with really vibrant berries and stone fruit like plums. And yea, I'm a lazy chef...I'M RETIRED!!!
Called customer service, representative was courteous, and helpful, product delicious.
