Any sweet which has its own hymn is a good sweet: "Venite ad Calicem", sung to commemorate salvation from the plague in Provence = "Come to the chalice", which managed to transfer itself in the Provençal tongue, into "Come to the calissons": this is just a dodgy google search which everyone seems to be plagiarizing from each other).
