Treat yourself with our selection of sweets from France! At Douce France, we carry an assortment of smooth caramel bonbons, frosted, stuffed and puffed candies as well as delicious nougat and caramelized pears. The choice is yours!
Our nougat is made by Jonquier, a French family-owned company that distinguishes itself with the quality of its nougat and the quantity of almonds used in their nougat recipes notably: 60% of almonds in their black nougat and 40% of almonds in their white nougat. Jonquier is dedicated to perpetuate the confection of nougat made with the harvest of premium almonds Valencia from Spain and uses only natural honey, egg white and sugar. No additives nor preservative are ever used, even in Jonquier's flavoured nougats. Jonquier also works in collaboration with local honey-keepers to get the best quality of orange-tree honey and multi-flower honey which is used for their black nougat and lavender honey which is used in their white nougat. Both kinds of nougats are gluten-free, with the black nougat also being vegan as it does not contain any egg white.
Our caramel bonbons come straight from France, fabricated by l'Ambr'1. Rewarded by the ‘Collège Culinaire de France’ for its engagement and promotion of French gastronomy, l'Ambr'1 caramels are made with 100% sea salt, and sweetened with natural sugar to perfection.

Our selection of frosted, stuffed and puffed candies come to us directly from France, made by the renowned French artisan Skendy. Skendy has been rewarded with the Label Origin France for the authenticity of its range of candies and it differentiates itself as it does not use any coloring agents but rather, solely fruit and plant extracts.
Skendy's frosted candies are best kept in tightly closed tins, so as to protect them from humidity. Our frosted candies' selection includes the Violettes from Toulouse, which are one of our best sellers! Our stuffed candies also come in a variety of flavors, made up of a crunchy outside and a delicate filling consisting of pulp or liquor.
