Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
You know a country is serious about its candy when it has a national union of sweetshops and a dedicated annual Day of Guilty Pleasures (the Journée des petits plaisirs, every October). Fittingly, Paris's candy stores are veritable temples to the sweet stuff. These are no dusty pick 'n' mix outlets – many of the best, and quite a few of the middling, stock an impressive range of nostalgic treats alongside newer, more bling bonbons. They're the perfect place for kids and sweet-toothed adults alike.
