I'm excited to share another food post with you all. I was recently sent a bag of macarons from a company called Macarons Galore*.
Macarons Galore makes fresh macarons daily and they also offer a bespoke service. All of their macarons are free from preservatives and additives.
I've actually never tried macarons before but I've always wanted to. The bright colours usually draw me in and these were no different. When they arrived, part of me just wanted to keep them on display because they looked so pretty!
They arrived in a small clear bag with a gold tie around it. This was packaged inside a large cardboard box with plenty of bubble wrap to stop the goodies from being damaged. The sides of the macarons were a little squished but, as you can see from the images, it wasn't anything major. So I guess it would be better if they packaged these in little boxes rather than little bags because, despite the amount of bubble wrap, the delivery men probably don't have the time or the effort to delicately carry every single parcel. The bags are really cute though, so maybe put the bag of macarons into a small box? Just throwing out the ideas here....
The most exciting part was, of course, eating them. The word delicious doesn't even come close to describing these. They were so good! They tasted fresh and the outer shell was crispy, just as it should be. The filling was soft and creamy, and the whole thing was just one little sugary delight! My favourite was the Cappuccino flavoured one. I could have easily eaten a whole bag of just the Cappucino ones. I was also lucky enough to be sent the Pumpkin one, a special edition for Halloween. I loved it!
This is the first I've heard of macarons being delivered fresh to your door. I'll definitely be using this service in the future because they taste amazing and I think it'll be a lovely little surprise for my family & friends during their birthdays or at Christmas.
