Bonne Maman jam is just about as authentic as can be. With chunks of fruit poking through and plenty of sugar, it’s French jam as has been made for centuries.
As early as the first century, Pliny the Elder described preserving fruit by cooking it in honey, syrup, or wine. Cane sugar is introduced to Europe around the year 1000 by way of the Middle East, and the word “confiture” was born, derived from the Latin for “medicine to lick.” At the time, it described all sweets made of foods cooked in sugar. For centuries, jam was considered a luxury, until beet sugar was discovered in the early 19th century. Now, they’re simply delicious!
Bonne Maman started in 1971 at Biars-sur-Cère, a village in the Lot region known for its plentiful fruit at the junction of the Cère and Dordogne rivers. The jam was so good that it could have been made by a grandmother for her family – hence the name “Bonne Maman,” which is an affectionate name for grandmothers in French. A simple glass jar, a handwritten paper label glued on, and a cap with a red Vichy fabric pattern: this is the way grandmothers used to make jam with all the fruit that ripened in the summer. The recipe is simple: 50% fruit, 50%, and the result is always delicious!
At French Wink, we have a varied selection of classic French jams for you to choose from! Will you spread black cherry, chestnut, quince, mandarine, rhubarb, strawberry & wild strawberry, or golden plum (mirabelle) on your toast in the morning? If you have a sweet tooth, opt for cherry, plum, or strawberry. For a jam with a little more bite, try rhubarb, quince, or mandarine. Chestnut jam is gentler thanks to its nutty flavor.

Chocapic - Nestlé
Give your kids Chocapic, the delicious breakfast cereal from Nestlé made with whole grains and the rich taste of chocolate that kids love!
Get ready for an active day with Chocapic cereal. Packed with seven vitamins, iron, and calcium, it provides your kids the essential nutrients they need for a busy day. Furthermore, the cereal is made with whole grains, which are an important part of a balanced diet. So no matter your age or lifestyle, Nestlé's Chocapic breakfast cereal helps start your day on the right foot.
Breakfast is important because after at least eight hours of fasting, your body needs energy! Generally, breakfast should bring 20 to 25% of your energy for the day. It should also play a big role in helping you reach your quota of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber for the day. Besides, having a filling and nutritious breakfast will help you limit snacking throughout the day. A balanced breakfast should include a grain, like bread or cereal, one dairy product, one fruit, and one drink. When choosing your grain, something made of oats, corn, wheat, or barley is especially energetic, especially if it’s whole grain. And don’t forget to drink water!
Chocapic is made of wheat, which is the most widely grown grain cereal. It’s grown on over 17 per cent of the total cultivated land in the world, and is the staple food for 35 per cent of the world’s population. It provides more calories and protein in the world’s diet than any other crop.
How much cereal should you eat? When it comes to cereal, a 30 gram portion usually fits nicely with the energy needs of a six- to eight-year-old child. However, energy needs are variable. Some of the main factors to determine energy needs are age, size and activity level. Many adults and teenagers have higher energy needs than children simply because they are bigger. As a result, teens and adults are likely to consume more than children. Keep things simple by remembering the following approximate portions: 25 to 30 grams for children and 30 to 45 grams for adults.
Contains gluten. May contain traces of milk, almonds, peanuts, and other nuts.
