Simple Pleasures... La Vie de La Vosgienne Candy


Growing up, my Mom would always have a tin or two of La Vie de La Vosgienne candies in her purse. And when we would finish the candies, I would use the tins to store my treasures.


Now, as an adult, I would absolutely love to have all of those gorgeous tins back. There's something so chic about these candies!

I love carrying them in my purse... and it doesn't hurt that they're absolutely delicious!

Mmmmm... the raspberry are so good. And I love that they are shaped like little berries!

I love these candies too! Package anything in a pretty tin and I'm sold. There are actually an amazing selection of Italian candies in tins at Eataly (Mario Batali's new venture) that I must purchase one of these days.
