Carambars, a French Favorite!

Carambars have always been a French classic and one of the most popular French treats. Very convenient for goodie bags, they are also known for their "Blagues Carambars", a joke or riddle that is written on the inside of the wrapping. 
We now carry many different flavors of Carambars: Fruit assortment, yummy Caramel, melt in your mouth Nougat and even Atomic Carambars, with a mix of 3 explosive flavors!

Provence Paintings

Just sharing with you those paintings that we fell for recently. They feature trees, flowers and plants - especially mediterranean ones that can be found in Provence. The vivid colors, the somewhat naive design, along with the captions on most of them ("Le Figuier", "Arbre de Provence", Laurier", "Herbes de Provence"...) give them this unique touch that we absolutely loved.
The French artist, Virginie de Rohden, lives in Aix en Provence, in the South of France. She enjoys painting Provence flowers and plants and finds inspiration when working outdoors.
