Les Coucougnettes


Les Coucougnettes (Gentleman’s Jewels)   “Best candy in France - 2000”

Les Coucougnettes are artisanal confectionery made in Pau, created by Francis Miot and SG Sender (The "Monsieur Pâtissier" by Gaston Lenôtre). A specialty of Pau, they were created to honor King Henry IV, to whom historians attribute 57 mistresses and 24 children. The name "coucougnette" comes from the word "coucougne" wich signifies a caress, cuddle, embrace…  in short, a "moment of love".

“The coucougnettes” are thus a gourmet and mischievous homage to the good King Henry IV nicknamed the "Vert Galant"
