Indulge your sweet tooth

For a treat for the taste buds, there’s nothing like a gourmet gift to enjoy together.

Confectionery, a symbol of temptation and pure delight, is ideal to enjoy on Valentine’s Day or for a gift for your loved one.

Sweets and chocolates for everyone to share. But not just any kind! Those from A la Mère de Famille have been popular since 1761. The little jars of sweets from the confectioner Fouquet’s are a favourite with children and adults. Maiffret is renowned for its chocolates and fruit jellies.  

At Angelina, you can buy the powder mix to make their famous traditional hot chocolate at home (called "L’Africain").

Macaroons are still very much in vogue. For a delicious and special gift, consider Ladurée’s macaroons, or Pierre Hermé’s which have the most unusual flavours (jasmin, foie gras, truffe banche.).Also to try, the amazing macaroon chocolates: real chocolates with a macaroon centre.

The Belgian chocolatier Pierre Marcolini presents timeless collections and ephemeral creations of biscuits, pralines, truffles, palet biscuits and other delicious things in his two Parisian shops.

The concept store Un dimanche à Paris, devoted to chocolate, has a shop, restaurant, and tea room, and gives cooking lessons.
