As an Italian living in California, I found myself missing some of the most elemental flavors from my childhood. As most kids do, I had a sweet tooth, and I remember spending evey extra bit of change buying candy on my way to and from school or at the ice cream kiosk at the park.
Back then Italian stores were always struggling to keep change in the register, and it became common practice to go to the 'drogheria' or the 'bar' to buy a piece of focaccia or a pastry and get back candy instead of change. Some of those childhood flavors have made it big all over the world: Tic-Tac, Nutella, and Perugina are some of the brands that you can find at almost any supermarket across America. Yet the vast majority of Italian sweets and candies are still mainly sold in the Italian domestic market, where they continue to enjoy great success with generation after generation of Italian kids.
When my kids started playing sports, I decided to steer them towards soccer, as it was the only sport I had somewhat played myself. As many parents do, I volunteered to coach, and it seemed fit that I would do so since I was Italian, and soccer is what Italians do.
This is our 4th year enjoy DuFour's Big Fruit candies. They have quickly become a stocking staple and highly anticipated holiday presence. They are highly reflective of the fruit flavors they have in the variety due to the high fruit juice content. That along with their small size, unique paper-fold wrapping and gem candy style sugar coating made them and instant tradition in our home.

These little sweet lemon jellies are fresh, lemony
and delicious!🍋 Thank you! Will buy again! ❤️💚
I have been buying the little tasty lemon candies for several years, they are awesome , is Federico still the owner ? If so tell him hello from Mike Jacobs in Wilsonville Oregon
I purchased some fruit jellies recently while in Rome. I didn't note the brand name but fell in love. The Big Frut jellies came close, though not as soft and smaller than the ones in purchase in Rome. If I can't find those same jellies, I would purchase the Big Frut ones again. The flavor is great!
