Let’s go to the other side of the Vosges to Plainfaing, in Lorraine. This is where the Confiserie des Hautes Vosges is located, well known to all gourmands. They have been making candy by hand since 1986. Personally, I got to know them when I arrived in Alsace and I liked them right away: they have the tasty taste of the old-fashioned candies. Fir honey, raspberry, poppy, Vosges resin or Nancy bergamots and soft candies with mirabelle plum alcohol, everyone can find his happiness!

It is possible to visit the Confiserie des Hautes-Vosges every day (except Sunday), without reservation. I had heard great things about this tour and was not disappointed, it is fun and interesting for both children and adults. The confectioners show step by step how they make the sweets: cooking the sugar to which glucose syrup is added, then adding the natural flavors and colorings, working and cooling the dough and finally molding the sweets (then tasting them by the visitors!). My favorite part? The work of the candy dough, shiny and colorful: a great show!

After the visit comes the store: the only difficulty will be to avoid bringing the whole store with you… That said, you have to admit that these candies make great little gifts to take home! 😉

I liked

  • Attend each step of the candy making process
  • Artisanal candies made with natural flavors and colors
  • Free visit for the whole family

I liked less

  • The “Candy Museum” part, very small!
