The Dragées Braquier factory has been producing Verdun's best-known speciality since 1783 and is continuing its artisanal production today. However, the company also offers other confectionery such as the Dragée (a large sugared almond which changes colour as you suck it), the famous exploding chocolate shell filled with Dragées and presents, and a wide selection of chocolate and candy sweets. Come and see them being made! Watch a film and then indulge yourself in the factory shop.
