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.
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!
