Sweets for all occasions
Sugared almonds are a tradition in happy events in our country. But where does this tradition of offering sugared almonds as gifts to our guests come from ? For which ceremonies is it advisable to offer them ? A little history and some explanations around dragees are necessary for you to understand better.
What are sugared almonds ? Where do they come from ?
Dragees are confectionery consisting of a hard sugar-coated core. They are offered as gifts in a container during various ceremonies such as a wedding, a baptism, a communion or a birthday. In ancient Greek, the dragee comes from the term "tragema" which meant "delicacy" and which was served at the end of the meal, as a dessert. But the dragee was really created in France, in the 13th century, by an Apothecary of Verdun who decided to coat almonds with honey and sugar and cook them together to create this unique confectionery : the dragee.
When to offer sugared almonds to your guests ?
Dragees are traditionally offered during happy life events that are celebrated with family and friends : baptism, wedding, communion or birthday. They are always offered as a gift to the guests of the event in a ballotin, which is often personalized especially for the ceremony according to a theme or a specific color. For the baptism of a little girl, for example, it is common to create a ballotin of dragees personalized with a pink ribbon or a fabric with a liberty pattern in linen or satin. It happens that the godmother or the godfather of the baptism takes care of the theme of the baptism and the creation of the personalized ballotins. For a wedding, it is common to create a classy pouch model with a sober color such as white or pink and a satin or linen ribbon to close the pouch.
Create unique dragee containers
Dragees cannot be offered without a container at a wedding, baptism or communion. A ballotin, a box, a pouch or a sachet is therefore essential. And what better than to offer a personalized and original box to offer gifts that everyone will remember ?
