While it may look more hi-tech pharmacy than candy store, we assure you, all you'll find in here are sweets. You do, however, get to put all your goodies in a pill jar and label the contents. And no, we don't think insurance will cover this.
They've been making candy and chocolate here since 1922 and, not surprisingly, are local legends. If you're in the mood for something a bit more substantial, they also have a an old-fashioned soda fountain where they serve food.
If you've ever wished you lived in a time in which people served multi-colored Thin Mints after dinner, this is your place. This is super, super old school candy--think caramel turtles and that kind of thing--as is the actual store itself.
Now this is my idea of an incredible class trip: a visit to a candy museum! In addition to showcasing candy-making equipment, they also display all kinds of interesting tins and boxes from candies that are long gone.
This incredible candy store won best original store in 2006 and you can see why. They have a fantastic mix of new candies and old English favorites, all displayed so adorably you may walk out with a few jars.
The woman who runs this place is as much a legend as the store itself. Tiny, with long silver braids she helps customers choose candy which is then placed on a silver tray until they're ready to pay. She's quite the character and coming here is always a funny experience!
Although they have boutiques and kiosks all over the city, don't miss seeing their storefront at this location. Whether you have a sweet tooth or not this is one of THE classic buildings in Paris and something everyone should see.
