Sweet Escape

Have you always been fantasizing about American Proust madeleines? Lucky Charms , Snickers spread and other Dr Pepper are displayed in the girly and pop departments of Sweet Escape , a brand new American grocery store on rue des Écouffes, in the heart of the Marais .

A New York-style Ali Baba cave

Owner of two souvenir shops rue de Rivoli and Place Saint-Michel, the family at the head of Sweet Escape must rethink its offer with the disappearance of tourists in full confinement.

From little Eiffel Towers to cult chips and candies, there is only one step… Fascinated by American culture and used to bringing back the best of the worst of junk food during their numerous stays in Miami and New York , Simon and Emma Geismar decide to turn around and take the Parisians on a trip this time.

After the success of their two souvenir shops converted into grocery stores overflowing with cult products made in the USA , a third little sister is born. Is it snack time already?
