Can you explain two words to me?

We returned to a restaurant where a few years ago we had a delicious butter, and this time I came prepared to write down its name. The butter came in a tube, like salt-water taffy.

I wrote it down as "Les Caniettes de Charente-Poitou extra-fin demi sel AOC" but I can't find it online as "caniettes." Should I have written "canettes" and does that refer to its being a foil-wrapped roll?

The other term I need help with is "cerneaux" from a restaurant menu. Could it possibly be creneaux? What would either of these words mean for a dessert? All I can tell you is it was a delicious dessert, somewhat of a highrise construction project, but I didn't notice crenellations.
