New York Times’ Florence Fabricant LOVES Casey Hickey’s Pâte de Fruit

Do you subscribe to The New York Times? If not, go pick up a copy – there’s something pretty sweet on page 3 of the FOOD section today!

Longtime Mouth fan Florence Fabricant gushes about these sparkly French fruit confections called pâte de fruit, made by Casey Hickey at Twenty Degrees Chocolates in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“What makes them shine is the fruit she uses, mostly locally grown berries, along with passionfruit, kalamansi and sour cherries. They come in a clear box, lined up in a vibrant gradation of color.”

They’re flying off the shelves so fast! Really, we’re just about sold out!

 

A fresh batch of Casey’s jewel-like squares should arrive at Mouth HQ in about two weeks (the time it’s going to take her to actually make them). Visit Casey's product page to sign up for email updates as soon as we have more of her pâte de fruit back in stock!

If you do find that we’re sold out, make sure you check out another of our amazing indie pâte de fruit makers, Willamette Valley Confectionery, for a very similar juicy, Mouth-watering, sugar-dusted treat. They come in both strawberry rhubarb and raspberry flavors (if you're giving them to someone you really love, they even come shaped as beautiful hearts).
