Dragées for all celebrations


The biggest choice in both traditional and original dragées in the region is to be found at Confiserie Adam. The same applies to the packaging. Be sure to find what you are looking for for any occasion – christenings, weddings, civil partnerships, communions, birthdays, wedding anniversaries, baby showers... All your needs are covered.


Our original dragée

But what exactly is a dragée? And moreover, why has Confiserie Adam been associated with dragées for so many years? The dragées, both the traditional and the original ones, meet the same criteria. Countless varieties of centres with an optional chocolate covering, which are then coated in a fine layer of sugar. And there we have it!

The last stage is what gives its name to the dragée. It’s quite simple. This simple-to-describe procedure in fact requires a veritable know-how, which Confiserie Adam is one of the last to possess. Our company has offered original, delicious dragées made in the traditional time-tested method, for over 100 years. This is why Confiserie Adam is associated with dragées, and especially original dragées. And rightly so! We also constantly innovate on our dragées – the colour, the centres, the shapes… Confiserie Adam is forever imagining new products for your delight. A small example of an original dragée which may surprise you: printed dragées. Write a message, print your logo on them, in a choice of colours. Anything is possible here at Confiserie Adam.

And of course, on top of our whole range of unprecedented on-trend dragées, we also offer the traditional almond or chocolate ones. Discover or re-discover their unique and oh-so delicious taste. These are the simplest and yet the most timeless dragées. To be enjoyed, of course, at celebrations. But also, on a daily basis, for those who appreciate life’s simple pleasures. No matter the moment of the day or the year, whatever your preference, we have a dragée for everyone!



Confiserie Adam is the dragée specialist. For over 100 years, we have mastered rare and demanding skills – those of the sweetmaker-confectioner. Both the traditional and the original dragée require the mastering of a specific skill which only very few companies still possess. Confiserie Adam is one of these and has notably been distinguished by the French State via the EPV label (Living Heritage Company), which recognises French companies possessing excellent know-how. This distinction is discerned to only a handful of French companies, of which Confiserie Adam. A real sense of pride and recognition for the company as a whole. This encourages us even more to pursue our gourmet story. Innovation, for example, is an integral part of Confiserie Adam. The dragée sector is in constant evolution and our wish is to propose both traditional and original dragées. Dragées often come with an old-fashioned image. But you will be surprised when you taste ours! Who would have thought that the crunchy almond could be replaced by soft marshmallow? And why not let yourself be tempted by our fruit centres? We could even be tempted into allowing ourselves the pleasure of tasting them on a daily basis! Let us share a little secret – that’s exactly what we do here at Confiserie Adam… The dragée is enjoyed all year round – our sweet little gourmet pleasure… Maybe you don’t know it, but you eat dragées more often than you think. That’s right, the famous little candy… The very one which coats a peanut in chocolate and is presented by two little characters – one red and one yellow. See what I mean? Yes, that’s a dragée!

The difference with Confiserie Adam (and others)


The quality of our raw material, our choice of recipes, our manufacturing techniques. Our wish is to provide original and traditional dragées of incomparable taste, to be enjoyed daily. Try. Let yourself be tempted by our range of dragées – dessert-flavoured, fruit-centred, exquisite praline, etc…you will be pleasantly surprised at the finesse of the flavours and your snack breaks will never be the same again. You’ll see – our dragées will become a daily pleasure. And should you choose the almond or hazelnut centres, you will also benefit from the nutritional values of these nuts. Our dragées can truly be part of a well-balanced diet.


Our dragées are of course also used in a more traditional way – for celebrations such as weddings, christenings, communions, and numerous other celebrations such as birthdays. Any opportunity to enjoy a dragée!


Some tips on how to choose your dragées


Here are some tips. If you enjoy simple pleasures, then choose between our almond and our chocolate dragées. But all tastes are catered for. If you prefer intense flavours, then the 73% chocolate is perfect for you. Fancy something refined? The Avola almond is the choice for you.

If, on the contrary, you wish to try new flavours, then opt for our unique dragées, of which Confiserie Adam offers a large variety. Let’s go through the options offered in the original dragées range… We can start with the marshmallow dragée – a tender heart which comes in a rainbow of 12 different colours (white, pink, yellow, etc). After the tenderness of the marshmallow, we have the dessert dragées.

Our dragées are the perfect accompaniment to your favourite desserts. Crème brûlée, tarte tatin, lemon tart, coco macaroon, tiramisu, red fruit crumble flavours – original at its best, don’t you find? Then we have the Pralissimo. Just the name denotes delicacy. Almonds covered in praline – irresistible! And we also have pear and chocolate caramel, raspberry or mandarine for the fruit lovers among us. A real treat! After this whirlwind tour of our original dragées, I’m sure you’ll agree that they are here to stay. It has always been important to Confiserie Adam to maintain the tradition of the dragée. It is a symbol of joy, happiness, life’s happy moments. Which is why at Confiserie Adam we are constantly innovating in our recipes and shapes. We have it at heart to adapt to your wishes and to stay up-to-date and it is by continuously developing new ranges of dragées that we manage to keep things dynamic. How exactly do we manage this?


New original dragées each year


Let us share a few secrets… Throughout the year, we travel the world in search of new raw materials, those which could meet our demands in terms of quality and taste. Should they pass our quality and flavour tests, we go onto stage two. Your dragée is starting to take shape. Then, as we have your wishes at heart, we just simply listen to you. Your opinion matters to us and we strive to develop our ranges in accordance with your wishes. Once these two stages completed, a new recipe or a new shape is born, and it’s on to the final tests. This is the moment for our famous tastings and modifications. We taste each of the new original dragées in order to retain only the best – the one which will find its way to you. And there we have it.

Our passion for our core activity and the infinite scope for creativity with the sugared almond makes it a pleasure to add new flavours and develop new dragées every year.We can imagine, YOU can imagine, all kinds of flavours, textures and shapes! What will be the next original dragée to be added to our list? We are already onto it – listening to you, looking to find the right raw materials to fulfill your wishes, looking for good ideas.
