Have I ever tried Macarons this good? NO! Mademoiselle Macarons are a completely new edition of my love for sweet treats! I’ve tried macarons before but never this good! I was actually put off Macarons by my past experience, and just felt they lacked flavour and depth for the amount of money.
Product Details: Macaron box of 18
With these, you’re really getting the full depth of flavour from each ingredient, and in all honesty, these just make my mouth water! It’s completely changed my mindset around Macarons and I could definitely see myself buying these again and again. The bad thing about these is the fact they’re so addictive! I literally couldn’t stop eating these and had to really force myself to stop, as I’m sure that much sugar in one day can’t be good for you 😉 I did of course share some with family and friends, but I can get pretty greedy when it comes to cakes or anything sweet, haha!
I actually can’t wait until the next time I can buy these again, but trying to limit myself as I don’t want to have an overkill of too many sweet things in the month, no matter how good they taste! I’m trying to eat more clean, including fruits and vegetables in my daily intake, more than biscuits and cakes and just buy these as treats now and not everyday necessities. Mademoiselle Macaron is a store based in Edinburgh stocking lot’s of varieties of Macarons, but the good news is you can also buy these online! That giving YOU the excuse to treat yourself and indulge in these luxurious treats.
I was overwhelmed with the wide selection of flavours and basically decided to try one of each, with a couple spare for sharing! 🙂 I will give a rundown of all the flavours below and my thoughts! I did find some nicer than others but this is just down to personal preference and what I wanted more of…
Fleur D’Orange – Light flavours of orange, but not over powering. I liked how refreshing this was and sweet but again not overly sickly or strong!
Chocolate – Beautiful creamy consistency of rich Belgian chocolate and cream, definitely one I enjoyed 😉
Vanilla – Again this was very subtle in flavour but one that really surprised me as I loved it! Delicate, rich and one I’d get again for sure!
Lemon – Citrus burst with strong lemon flavours and sweetness! Very rich in flavour and refreshing for summer
Lavender – This was beautiful, I loved the subtle hints of lavender and it was really creamy too!
Innis & Gunn – I find beer pretty bitter and lacking flavour but it was lovely in this macaron
Scottish Whammy – The Light flavour of Irn-Bru, could have been more enhanced flavour wise, but very pleasing and sweet! A true Scottish classic, but I don’t actually drink fizzy drinks ha, ha but loved this!
Earl Grey – Made using loose tea leaves, I really liked how subtle the taste was and it wasn’t sweet
Chocolate & Passion Fruit – Rich dark chocolate mixed with delicate passion fruit, I think this was one of least favourites but still lovely, I just preferred whole chocolate personally as it was very sweet and had alot going on flavour wise.
Salted Caramel – This was one that really stood out for me and I just craved more!! This was very subtle on the palate with a nice balance of salt mixed with rich caramel
Raspberry – Very strong in flavour and taste, great for summer and I enjoyed the richness of this
Rose – This was actually pretty strong but lovely! The flavour was really in-depth but not sweet, very light with a mixture of white chocolate and a smooth creamy finish
Pistachio – This was pretty salty with a nice texture filled with chunks of pistachio nuts
Hendricks Gin – I wasn’t so sure about this as I’m not a huge fan of Gin, but would have loved a whiskey version! 🙂 I was again blown away by this and loved the creamy consistency
Elderflower – I absolutely adore elderflower so this is something I knew I’d love the off chance, very delicate in flavour
Chocolate and Peppermint – Something else I knew I’d love and these actually reminded me of After Eights, strong mint aftertaste and very creamy, mmm!
Gingerbread – Another favourite of mine, packed full of flavour and very warming
Something I loved about these macarons is the fact they are suitable for vegetarian’s and come gluten and dairy free! I personally can’t wait to see other flavours arrive and hope they will do a whiskey or champagne version! I don’t actually drink, only on occasions but do love alcohol mixed with chocolates and any other sort of delicacy, it just gives a really rich flavour.
