You cannot go to Moret-sur-Loing without trying France's oldest candy! It dates back to 1638. By today's standards nothing extraordinary in terms of flavors but it's all natural... and they come in pretty little boxes!

This tiny museum devoted to the story of the town's secret recipe barley sugar is a delight. At only €2 for entry it holds a lot of interest. It's worth it to visit the unique building in which the exhibition is housed.
