Aren’t they pretty. The slightly cracked one is chocolate, which was a darker, almost nutty, chocolate flavor. The pale pink is cherry – now I don’t usually like cherry flavored nothing because it reminds me of cough syrup, but Michel Patisserie really pulled this one off well – it’s a light subtle cherry. The green is pistachio, which was nice, but the two homeruns were the passion fruit (the speckled macaron) and the salted caramel. Both were amazing – strong true flavors and just absolutely lovely. The texture of all 5 macarons had a wonderful combination of slightly crunchy, yet delicate and pillowy and almondy. Every birthday should include macarons!
