Les Vérités, pavé Nationale 7 and lapalissades

The "vérité" is a speciality of Lapalisse forming a sweet with a crunchy sugar outside and soft caramel centre that comes in different flavours: raspberry, blueberry, hazelnut, coffee, rum, caramel.

They are individually wrapped and put in see-through bags or a charming round metal box.

The name " lapalissade" was inspired from a confectioner from Lapalisse, Jean Sauvadet, who, in 1922, named his sweets the "vérités de Lapalisse", with the approval of the family descendant. The brand has been held by Séverine and Olivier Thévenet since 2002 who now run the "Aux Vérités de Lapalisse" branding.

With the great traffic hold-up in mind and in memory of the RN7, Olivier also created "le pavé nationale 7" (registered trademark), a subtle blend of praline chocolate and crunchy nougatine.

The master craftsman, André Thépénier runs the brand at La Tentation and les lapalissades speciality, a sweet that comes in coffee, chocolate, raspberry, blueberry and praline flavours.
