While in St. Brioc (Binic), Sara develops a passion for Pierre Gourmand sweets. When the girls go to the circus, before finding a seat Sara makes sure that she has an ample supply of Pierrot Gourmand nougat. The Pierrot Gourmand company was founded in 1892 by a young Parisian confectioner called Georges Evrard and is still going strong today, producing over 140,000,000 sweets and cakes a year.
