Candy factory “Rūta” and artist Julija Janus, inspired by the magnificent love story of the royal couple Žygimantas Augustus and Barbora Radvilaitė, have created 2 exclusive sets of sweets. They provide an opportunity not only to get acquainted with the extraordinary history, but also to touch the Italian Renaissance culture, traditions and subtleties of cuisine.
“Secret Love” is dark chocolate sweets with oranges and sea salt. This special combination – the sweet and sour taste of orange peels intertwining with the subtle saltiness of sea salt and the crunch of chopped almonds – was created for a reason. The Grand Duke of Lithuania Žygimantas Augustas pampered the love of his life, Barbora Radvilaitė, every day – he gave her one of the most expensive fruits – oranges, which Queen Barbora loved very much.
The name of the candy also makes sense. Due to its greatness and drama, the story of Žygimantas Augustus and Barbora Radvilaitė has become the most romantic legend of secret love in Vilnius of all time.
These candies are from the Julija Janus design collection dedicated to the love story of the most famous Vilnius royal couple.
