The French are known for their designer chocolates, especially if it involves the dark stuff, and having a chocolatier nearby is pretty much a given, much like you'd expect to have a bank, a dry cleaners, and a bakery. But there's clearly also a clientele for the lower end sweets, these gummy treats in many flavors, which are hawked at stands like this one around the city. To be honest, this stuff does nothing for me, although my kids think I'm nuts.
Despite my urgings, this monsieur would not crack a smile. Perhaps he had a belly ache from all that sugar.
