Description
In medieval times it was believed that sweet treats, consumed regularly, led to improved health, with confections during the period created by apothecarists. By the time of the Renaissance, the English imported sweet-centred courses to wealthy court banquets, with sugared delicacies including candied fruits, marzipan and sweet biscuits. This tantalising selection box of 'sweetmeats' includes award-winning marrons glacés and pâtés de fruits, marzipan fruit and walnut-stuffed marzipan. Presented in a beautiful gift box with ribbon detail, this artisan array of confectionery is a perfect gift for a dinner party or someone special.

I wanted these as a present for Christmas but the sell-by date is 1st November so cannot give these. However, I shall just have to eat them myself!

They are very good but not quite my sort of thing. They all tasted the same and \i would have liked more variety in the flavours.

Very expensive but absolutely delicious. My husband was moved to say they were the best sweetmeats he'd ever tasted. And he's tasted a few!

I bought the sweetmeats for my friends birthday, they are the nicest marzipan sweets she has tasted, I will have to get some for home so we can see how delicious they are, so far I have not tasted one, funny they are all gone so quick!!
