La boutique de bonbons



La Cure Gourmande is chain with six shops around Paris and also Spain and Belgium.  They specialize in biscuits, chocolats, and confiseries.  I think their logo and packaging is trop mignon and did I mention they always have tasty treats to sample?  I'll admit I've never shopped there,  because I'm too busy snapping away. Maybe this photography thing is helping me refrain from a FEW of the delights to be found in Paris.





WE HAVE OUR WINNERS! 
M, who lives in Katy, Texas will receive a set of Paris Walking Tour cards
Martine- Alison , Martinelison, who lives in France will receive one of my 8x10 photographs.
Thank you all for entering and for all of your wonderful comments this week and for the past three years.

Ou la la - j'aime les bonbons! What a store! I wonder if it's subsidized by Parisien dentists, non?!

I shopped at the one on the Ile Saint Louis meaning to take some treats back to Canada but I ate all the nougat in my hotel room before dinner. The place is beautiful. I saved the bags and the wrappings.

Pup, I'm LOL at your comment. Yes, that is what happens when you buy delights in Paris.....they never make it home.

OK - if I must, will take one box of each of the selections to share with all my friends. Sort of. I am the original Pierrot Gourmand!

Congratulations, you lucky devils. I tried to stuff the ballot box, but it didn't work.

Very warm and welcoming window there Virginia. I must say the photo taking does keep me busy too, but never too busy for le chocolat haha!

We had one of these boutiques in our village but fortunately for me... it moved! I love their caramels with a passion... trop dangerous... xv

Alexa said...

What a house of delights that is! I'd be snapping away too, V—but nibbling on samples too. Congrats to the lucky winners!

These shops are a delight to photograph and staying behind the camera does save the calories, but I bet they have some delicious offerings.

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

If the goodies taste as good as the shops looks beautiful, they must be scrumptious!

Last year a bought my wife a gift from the store near Opera but too be honest I think they are over priced.
