This post is wayyyyyyy delayed.
So I was at Oakridge Mall with some time to spare, so I was chilling at the food court. I came across these macarons, (though the bakery called them macaroons.) I thought I’d give them a try, and I deeply regret taking out my wallet out for this.
It may be called a macaron, but by experience, this is not a genuine Parisian macaron! I wish I spent my $4 on macarons on something else. *insert sad face.*
I chose the Coffee & Praline Macaron and Cinnamon Macaron. PS- I don’t know why all the other macarons are spelt “macaron,” but the Raspberry is called “French Macaroon.” Huh?
Okay- I don’t get why some macarons have to be so frozen. Maybe kept in cooler temperature? Yes. But I don’t want a tiny ice cream sandwich for $2.
The flavour itself isn’t bad, as I liked the taste of the cinnamon one. The coffee was okay. But they were very condensed, frozen, and not light and dainty. They weren’t very creamy either. They were quite flat as well, and the texture is not comparable to other macarons as well. I felt like whoever made these just made them for the sake of it since Vancouver is jumping on the macaron bandwagon.
Final words: There are other places with better macarons for $2 or cheaper!
