The origin of this candy: The origin dates back to the Napoleonic wars. At that time, the soldiers tore up the plugs of the lead charges destined to load the rifles with their teeth. To remove traces of lead on the teeth, they used to chew tobacco, but the result was not there. But one day, one of them had kept a beautiful dentition without any trace of lead or tobacco. He explained that he was sucking sweets that a relative, a resident of Bavay, was sending him. In addition to having teeth without traces of lead, he was protected from lead poisoning. At that time these sweets were called sweet sweets.
In 1875, a confectioner by the name of Favier Fortin, decided to pay homage to this story, and at the same time to Napoleon's soldiers, by adapting the recipe and creating the real Bavay quid. He deposited the recipe as you can taste and brand it in 1922.

Entreprise qui associe tradition et modernité, cette confiserie du Nord de la France maintient le patrimoine gourmand de la région depuis 1887. Elle est associée à une autre confiserie qui fabrique les fabuleuses «Bêtises de Cambrai» depuis 1830.

Implantée dans le Nord de la France, ces entreprises ont été réunies au sein d’une même organisation et se sont dotées d’une dynamique d’entreprise moderne pour continuer de produire localement toutes les bonnes confiseries traditionnelles du Nord de la France.


Mais si l’organisation se veut résolument contemporaine toute la production est réalisée dans le respect des recettes et des méthodes anciennes à tel point que les machines d’origine ont été gardées ! Seul le conditionnement a été modernisé.


La recette : de bonnes recettes, un vrai savoir-faire préservé, une démarche d’entreprise moderne et conquérante : on ne peut qu’applaudir et vouloir soutenir !
