French women’s claim that they never get fat is about to be tested by none other than Scarlett Johansson. The movie star and her French husband Romain Dauriac have announced that they are opening a gourmet popcorn shop in Paris they are calling “Yummy Pop.”
“It has been a dream of mine and my family for several years to bring our favorite American snack to our favorite European City!” Johansson said in a statement. “I am so excited to introduce Yummy Pop, a labor of love and Epicurean enthusiasm. My hope is for Yummy Pop to become a Parisian snacking staple and a symbol of friendship between my two most beloved cities, Paris and New York.” Just like the Statue of Liberty!
The store is located in the trendy Marais district, and will have a soft opening tomorrow and a grand opening sometime in the future. The shop will rotate flavors based on what’s in season, but a sampling of what will be available include: Truffle Parmesan and Sage, Real Vermont Maple, Real Vermont Cheddar, Sea Salt and Olive Oil, Strawberries and Cream and Chocolate Covered Strawberries.
