Q: your description shows 12 Macarons (At least 6 different flavors) but customer reviews show that their are only 2 different flavors in each box so which is it 2 flavors (6 of each flavor) or 6 flavorsAsked by Ashlei S., January 2020
Thanks for your question. It is 6 flavors different monthly. Only for Christmas we developed two limited flavors. In this case it was only two flavors. The rest of the year it is 6 different flavors 👍
Anthony. French Chef.
Clamshell was not airtight and product was dried out or stale around edges. Monthly descriptions on website were not products recieved. Did not recieve final box
Thanks for sharing. FYI our macarons don't get stale. The macarons are made upon order by French Chefs from Le Cordon Bleu Paris. It ship fresh from our kitchen in California to your door in an insulated bubble wrap package, surrounded by bubble cushions and carton box. Please reach out to us if you feel the macarons of the month received weren't the as expected. Sorry it wasn't a good fit! Cheers.
Very fresh. Taste exactly like in Paris.
Thanks for your words Sydney!
I got my first round of my subscription during the Christmas holiday. The cookies were fine, nice and fresh but I was very disappointed with the selection of flavors. Only 2 flavors raspberry and pistachio(not flavors I associate with Christmas)I get why they did it, green and red for the holidays but they could have put a couple other “holiday” colors/flavors in there. Example sugar cookie/cake batter/ cookie dough, these are white/cream color and go with Christmas theme. Or other flavors to match with the green and red theme
For as much as I spent I’m not happy with selection and second tier flavors. I hope the next month is better. More flavor variety
Thanks for sharing. Sorry it wasn't fully a good experience for you.
We're confused that you wanted more in a box since the product describe it's two flavors monthly (6 x flavor A, 6 x flavor B). Please check the subscription box detail page.
FYI, the macarons are handmade by French Chefs in California. They ship fresh to your door. Sugar cookie/cake batter/ cookie dough are not actual flavors. It would be basically sugar with lots of artificial ingredients. At Pastreez we aim to provide genuine flavors made with fresh ingredients and a traditional approach. Our menu has for example Salted Caramel, Raspberry, Violet, Chocolate, Apricot and much more. We pick flavors for their authenticity and we never add sugar to the ganache. Sorry it wasn't...
I have to say these cookies are very delicate and I was worried about shipping. Not only I received these cutties without a single crack but they really taste like Paris. Thanks Pastreez!
Best macroons we ever had.
It was a huge hit! We ordered the 1 year subscription as a gift to my sister as she just had a baby. We thought she needed macaroons to treat herself.
Not only they arrive fresh, but you can feel those are handmade by actual French bakers. We used to travel to Europe and always stop at Ladurée Paris to get some macarons. The Pastreez macarons are def in competition with these for sure. The flavors we got were as describe. I recommend Pastreez to those who like to taste real macarons. Nothing compared to so-called bakeries that had sugar in the filling and just call it "sugar cookie". Overall great experience!
Thanks for the comparison Gilian!
It shipped quickly and they were very fresh. I would have liked to receive a greater variety of flavors to sample, rather than just the two flavors (passion fruit and guava). I preferred the passion fruit for it's tangy flavor which contrasted the sweet macaron. I would order again as a gift or for a special occasion.
Those macarons are like the ones in Paris. Colorful, Great Taste, and awesome customer service. We can feel it has been made by french chefs and fine ingredients Will def keep this Subscription going.
I ordered these as part of a gift for a close friend - They arrived promptly based on the expected ship date - she happened to be visiting with me when they arrived so I gave them to her right away. The box was big but the contents tiny in comparison but so cute!! Not a criticism, i just was used to the ones in our local Parisien bakery downtown DC. I was a little disappointed that she was only getting 2 flavors. I tend to agree with some of the other commentators that it would be much more fun (and more likely to continue to get them) if there was a great variety, e.g. a mix and match of 3 or 4 flavors - its a little boring to have so many the same when you do love them but wish for more variety. The quality is fantastic - they are Paris fresh! They are beautifully designed and very artistic, not a single flaw on the. I didnt like one of the flavors at all, not even sure what flavor it was. Neither of us could figure out but the chocolate one was delish (and I'm not a chocolate fan). The other was a tad bland and none discript - needed a kick of some flavor (lemon perhaps) to gizz it up but overall I thought they were pretty, dainty, very French cuisine. I'm pretty sure if I ordered them again,...
Thanks for your words! The experience you had is exactly what we aim to do: Bring a taste of Paris to your door. We're French chefs from Le Cordon Bleu Paris, based in California. We bake all the macarons by hand and they ship fresh wherever you are in the US.
About the variety, got it. The subscription description does state that it's only 12 macarons with two flavors monthly. We will make sure to emphasize it even more on the subscription page. Cheers!
I purchased this delicious Treat box for my sister birthday a 3 month subscription. It was a huge hit thanks would buy again
