I’ve found it a rare sighting for macaroons in the states, even in the major metropolitan cities. Luckily I found one small bakery a city over that sells them, but they’re quite expensive, so when I buy from them it’s usually a special treat.
And Of course, after all my wishing that more bakeries in the states would take an interest in producing macaroons, I would stumble across them in the monopoly of a retailer who has “everything.” Never did I imagine that walmart of all places would carry these goodies.
Sure enough in their frozen dessert section sits a box of 12 macaroons. I finally thawed them out today for my after dinner treat. They aren’t nearly as divine as fresh ones but they do the trick and are still quite tasty. Feeling a little nostalgic for Paris? Here you go…
Much love – MA
