Bêtises de Cambrai ([betiz də kɑ̃bʁɛ]) are a French boiled sweet made in the town of Cambrai. "Bêtise" is French for "nonsense" or "stupid mistake" and the sweets are said to have been invented by accident by the son of a confectioner named Afchain. The original flavour is mint, but many others are now produced. Stripes of caramel add sweetness.
