Macarons! Apparently to never be misconstrued or misspelled as macaroons. I never thought Id lay my eyes on the actual thing. That is until I spotted and purchased these Chocolate and Vanilla Macarons from Trader Joes! I live in an area where the French delicacy is not sold. Ive heard other specialty food shops sold them but my local locations do not. In my area coconut macaroons are a big seller and are sold in numerous stores and specialty bake shops (particularly Italian bakeries). These macarons were $4.99 for the box and were sold out of the freezer section at my local Trader Joes. The only packaged flavor available at my location was the chocolate and vanilla variety. I let the cookies defrost per the package directions and enjoyed. Since Ive never had the cookie before I have nothing to compare against but I have to say I really loved these! They were soft, moderately chewy and not very sweet. They did break apart very easily, but I suspect thats due to freezing, defrosting and bouncing around in the shopping bag in the trunk of the car. I found the vanilla cream (frosting) was a lot softer and was spilling out of the macaron whereas the chocolate was firmer and stayed in place. 2 cookies are a serving size and they only translated into being 2 points plus values. Completely worth it, worth the experience and just plain delicious all around. Im a fan. Im also glad macarons are not sold in my area (at least no place that I know of) because Id have to taste test. Ive taste tested the coconut macaroons at my local Italian bakery in the past so I can see possible damage if they were sold around me like the coconut macaroons are. But nonetheless I would and will repurchase these again so please, Trader Joes, do NOT discontinue these! QUESTION: Have you tried Trader Joes macarons? Did you enjoy them? If not, have you ever had a macaron? Image is mine do not take or use. Thank you.
