What I Ate: Macarons

Let's talk sweets.
Specifically macarons.
When the Husband and I were in downtown Winter Park we stumbled upon one of the franchise locations of Le Macaron.
All I can say is yum!

"Bringing you the famous macaron from Paris

The macaron is considered to be the jewel of french pastries in Europe. Shopping for macarons and other French pastries is an enjoyable experience.

There is a quality of life the French have perfected. It requires you to slow the pace of life and take the time to do things right, using high quality ingredients and perfecting a craft. It is about allowing yourself a little luxury and slowing down long enough to appreciate the quality of a thing done right.

We have done our best to capture that French spirit in our delicacies so we can share it with our customers. We have tested and perfected recipes for products made in our bakery. We are very proud of the quality of our products. We offer little luxuries that make people smile — make life a little better.

Over the years, we have put our heart and soul into making Le Macaron French Pastries what it is today."

This location is tucked away down a cute little garden path in the middle of the shops at Winter Park and is a lovely little surprise.
They serve macarons, fine chocolates, and gelato. We chose a small box of macarons to take home and each picked a chocolate for now.
The Husband chose a salted caramel that was practically perfect.
I had a passion fruit and milk chocolate heart. Just the right amount of tart sweetness.
And the macarons? Soooo yummy!
Belgian Chocolate
Gianduja and Hazelnut Cream

The other flavors we tried were:

Delicious! If you're near a location and looking for something special for someone special (or just something yummy for you) I highly recommend it!
