There is never a lack of things to look at at Christmas and I could have bought all sorts of edible things if I had wanted, especially chocolate. Chocolate is always huge here no matter what time of year, but at Christmas they really go into high gear as it is often a gift to give. I’ve received a huge box myself and had no trouble eating it.

I saw these heart shaped boxes in a new little shop which sold products made the old fashioned way with old recipes. It sold things like candied violets and rose petals. It’s called la Grande Duchesse.

Silver coated licorice. I liked the way they looked and I liked the container but I passed.

Paris is getting into the Christmas spirit.

These little Santas and elves were filled with chocolate which made them tempting to buy.
