Pastiglie Leone

Leone brand candies have been around for a long time in Italy. I love the Art Deco and Art Nouveau package designs. The flavors are interesting, in concept, at least: coffee (I want a poster of this box!), Tuareg green tea, Polar strong, the Merchant of Venice (spices, I’m guessing), Lemon, Prince of Naples Orange Flowers, Mandarin (these three are “thirst-quenching”), and Lime Sage (“digestive”). And this was only half the packages on display. Photo taken at Bar Santa Marta, via Mascari, Lecco (which also features the best breakfast pastry in town).
