Pierrot Gourmand

For over a century, Pierrot Gourmand has been delighting the whole family taste buds… But not only! Our will is also to offer you an enchanted break in everyday life to express your creativity, and defend a new art of self-indulgence, authentic and eco-friendly.

Since 1892, Pierrot Gourmand takes children and adults on a journey to a wonderful dreamy and playful world, thanks to its unique flavors and its universe full of poetry...



Georges Evrard opens the “Au Pierrot Gourmand” confectionery store in the Marais neighbourhood, in Paris. It’s the beginning of a great adventure!

The character of Pierrot has his origin in the Comedia Dell’Arte. But it’s a more touching and lunar version of the character that inspires Georges Evrard, coming to life with the features of the mime Jean Gaspard, also called Jean Debureau, on the famous music of “Au clair de la lune”. Then, he naturally decides to follow this line, by offering a delightful and indulgent sweet escape to the public!


Based on the success of his candies, he registers the brand “Pierrot Gourmand”. The picture of Pierrot Gourmand, who is sitting on a crescent moon, playful , and hesitating to offer some candies to his crush Columbine, becomes the brand effigy for a long time. It’s the beginning of the great adventure of Pierrot Gourmand! The factory will stay associated to this picture of a dreamy, touching and lunar character.


While its confectionery factory grows with new treats, Georges Evrard sets up its first chocolate factory at Ivry-sur-Seine, in order to meet the growing demand of his customers.


Georges Evrard imagines a new candy, made in a feather-shaped wood mold, and fixed to a Madagascar rattan stick, that allows candy lovers to enjoy a candy without getting fingers sticky...The first lollipop is born!


Made of ceramic or porcelain and hand painted, the famous Pierrot Gourmand bust display invites children and adults to cheerfully choose their favorite lollipop. It has become the symbol of the brand and still delights candy lovers as well as collectors!


During fifties, Pierrot Gourmand has its golden age. The iconic lollipop “PeeGee” so called because of initials P.G. that are engraved, is proposed in several fruity flavors and delights the whole generation.

Why make things complicated when it’s so simple to get delighted! Since 1892, Pierrot Gourmand has kept its values that have made it well-known: indulging candy lovers, defending authenticity and true pleasures, but above all inviting children and adults to take time to dream and be over the moon...

In a hyperactive world where adults and children are over-stimulated and have no time to get bored, Pierrot Gourmand candies offer a delicious break. Some sweet minutes during which time stops, to let your imagination run free, and allow everyone to develop his/her creativity

That’s why, since 1924, Pierrot Gourmand makes sure of always following the original recipe of the legendary caramel lollipop, inherited from Georges Evrard’s know-how. A genuine, simple and gourmet recipe, made from fresh and quality products.

Poured in a traditional cast iron mold and engraved with “P.G.” initials, each lollipop is presented in a pretty paper wrapper decorated with a harlequin design, a poetic nod to Pierrot Gourmand story. Its biodegradable wooden stick and its recyclable paper wrapper confirm the commitment of the brand to protect the environment, for a sweeter future, for all.

And if Pierrot Gourmand recipes have won the heart of several generations, they are today proposed in new flavors, that remind the sweet flavors of childhood, and call adults and children to escape and discover new wonderful universes.



For Pierrot Gourmand, pleasure is not only a matter of indulgence. It’s the opportunity of a moment just for yourself. A bubble to escape the world and let your creativity and imagination run free.

A gravity-free journey that must be enjoyed step by step… First, by removing the wrapper with enthusiasm. Then by contemplating the nice shades of the lollipop to awaken your appetite. By enjoying this boiled sweet treat for long minutes, and finally by letting your mind run free towards wonderful universes.

A pure moment of sweetness, that invites younger dreamers to meet Pierrot on his imaginary crescent moon, and reminds older ones how good it is to take time to fall back in childhood memories…


We are convinced that enjoying candies also means enjoying simplicity. That’s why we only choose natural and quality ingredients: good fresh milk that comes from local productions and the right level of sugar to enhance all their flavors during cooking. And because simple things are the best ones, all our recipes are made with no artificial flavors and colors.

Fully manufactured within our factory located in Corrèze, Pierrot Gourmand lollipops keep a centenarian know-how alive. A constantly required quality that is in the heart of Pierrot Gourmand’s mission, to delight young candy lovers of all ages.


Because we love our planet and the good ingredients that it brings us to make our lollipops, we have a role to play to protect it. To offer you a delicious experience, as delightful as sustainable, we have developed eco-friendly packagings.

We thus have chosen to remove all plastic materials from our packagings and only keep natural materials. Our boxes and sets are made of recyclable cardboard and our lollipop sticks are made of French natural wood, to remind the first Pierrot Gourmand lollipops and their Madagascar rattan stick.

But who says that ecology doesn’t go with coquetry? Decorated with a lovely Harlequin frieze, inspired by the Commedia dell’arte universe and the character of Pierrot, our boxes and wrappers are designed with graphic patterns and a dreamlike logo, that takes you in a sweet journey even before starting savouring!
