One of the things the tourism staff mentioned that we had to try was the famous barley sugar candies that are produced in Moret-sur-Loing. We stopped by the store she directed us to and we tried a sample the sugar candy, I didn't really think it was all that special and a little tiny amount of it was expensive although it did come in a pretty tin. The recipe dates back to 1638, created by the Benedictine nuns. If you have an interest in how it is made, there is the Musee du Sucre d'Orge (Barley Sugar Museum) in town.
