This individually wrapped fruit candy has been a favorite of French kids since the 1950's. And French adults are easily tempted too: nothing like Carambar to bring back childhood memories. Carambar is also a great pastry ingredient!´This French fruit bar is known for its long shape and the corny jokes printed on the inside of the wrapper. The jokes are legendarily bad, to the point that a bad joke is sometimes referred to as a _Carambar Jokeï by the French.

After all, they invented crme br_l_e.
