Anis De Flavigny

Les anis de Flavigny are little white sweets made from grains of aniseed in a flavoured sugar coating, and take their name from the village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain in the Cote d’Or department.

The sweets were probably invented for medicinal purposes by the monks of the Ursuline monastery which used to be sited in the village, and were once very popular, with as many as eight firms making them in the 19th century. The village has since shrunk to a population of about 450, but there is still a company, that of Troubat, making the sweets here, in the former abbey building.
