Pastille de Vichy refers to a French candy. Vichy pastilles were first developed by a pharmacist in the early 1800's who wanted to incorporate the digestive enhancing qualities of the famous Vichy water in a pill form. Originally the pastilles contained only sodium bicarbonate, but these days they are made from the minerals that remain when Vichy water is evaporated, along with sugar and some flavorings. The classic Pastille de Vichy is mint flavored, but Vichy Pastilles also come in lemon and anise flavors. Vichy pastilles are not too sweet with a slight salty taste (that's those healthy digestive minerals) that melts slowly in your mouth. They freshen the breath and are said to help digest, making this French candy especially popular during copious meals. The perfect accompaniment to your next ten course French feast!
