In the Middle-Ages, an apothecary from the town of Verdun in northeast France had the idea of coating medications with a layer of sugar to disguise the taste of it. Around 1220, a confectioner of the same town used the same technique to coat almonds. This is how the dragée was born. However some people claim the dragée was invented by a Roman candy-maker named Julius Dragatus who was known for coating almonds and spices with honey that he called “dragati” to be given to crowds on celebration days. Whatever its origin may be, these confections have a long history and are traditionally associated with weddings and special celebrations. The town of Verdun acquired its reputation for its dragées by the 13th century.
