What a story! We love the history of this candy.

Created in 1880 by a pharmacist from Toulouse, France, Mr. Leon Lajaunie, the famous little square pastille with licorice is still a success, known for its refreshing taste, its digestive properties and its soothing effect on sore throats. Today, the famous pastille is still manufactured in Toulouse by five dedicated employees who cook, taste, cut, sort and package the candies. After more than a century of existence, the recipe developed by Leon Lajaunie is still the same.
