It was nearly 200 hundred years ago that the Chemist Jean-Pierre-Joseph d’Arcet created an octagonal pastille. But what was it called? The one and only genuine Vichy, of course! This unique pastille is made from mineral extracts from Vichy water. And they’ve been making them for so long that the legendary sweet can tell you almost the whole of French history. Times might change; but the Vichy doesn’t. It’s the same recipe in the same shape and – it tastes the same!
