So many supermarkets in Le Mans.
I think I'll bring snacks only then do a shop there.

Question- energy drinks...are they going to be an issue? Isn't there some ban on selling them in France?
  • Should* LM go ahead this year and you bring your energy drinks, they'll be fine.
They're for you, you're not reselling them.
