I bought and then consumed something called a "steam cake" produced by the company Ginza Kimuraya. It was quite good. The package reads:
"My lasting memory of that first trip to Frnace in 1952, is of sensuality. Today, one would have to step off an aeroplane on the other side of the world to experience such an impact on the senses. There was a strangely exotic smell which hit me as soon as I set foot on the quay at Calais, later identified as a mixture of strong tobacco, expensive scent, and fresh garlic. As well as producing unbeatable bread, French bakers also service the nation's sweet tooth with a cornucopia of pastries and cakes. One French customs is the visit to the boulangerie-patisserie after Mass on u attended the service or not! - returning home with a baguette in one hand and a pyramid-shaped parcel in the other, containing a shle heavy creme patissiere."
