It’s confession time. Here it goes: I am only a new-comer to the macaron-craze which seems to have taken Vancouver (dare I say, the world) by storm. Yeah…so I’m kinda slow on crazes. You’ll start to realize that soon. I’m what people call a “late-adopter”. Big time.
When I say I’m a new-comer, I mean the only macarons that I’ve tried are the ones from Thierry Patiserrie. Yeah, I know – lame. But Thierry’s have had quite an impact on me. For example, whilst sitting at work the other day, I realized that I just had to get some of Thierry’s macarons. I even walked in the rain for 30 minutes for them. I get kinda crazy like that when I am craving something. I think that they are so pretty (just look at those colours!) that I wanted to share them with you, along with my awesome hand-made infographic…
So my impressions are: the raspberry one is, without a doubt, my favourite. When you get to the real fruit filling it tastes like summer. They all shared the same level of creaminess, which I just loved.
The lime was very subtle in flavour, with just a hint of lime.
The blackberry really had very little distinguishing flavour but it was creamy and delicious nonetheless.
So, as I mentioned, I’m new to the macaron scene but I’d love to hear from you. Where is your favourite place to get macarons?
