Description

Olives de Provence are almonds coated in semi bitter dark chocolate  and then in white chocolate dyed in various green and black hues simulating the colours of natural olives

Made in France

Based in Provence, Francois Doucet was founded by Francois and Maggy Doucet. Initially the company’s only product was “Pralino Eis Amando de Prouvènço”: roasted almonds of Provence wrapped in a nougatine (mixture of caramelised sugar and powdered almond), herbs of Provence and vanilla bourbon.

However  as the great-grandson of Théodore Vieillard, creator of the Auvergne fruit paste, and grandson of chocolatier Leon Mazet,  Francois had a rich tradition of confectionery and the company soon began to specialise in fruit jellies and candied fruit coated in chocolate made from fruit 70% of which is harvested fully ripened in Provence and neighbouring regions.
