Didn’t get enough of your chocolates and sweets this past Valentine? Then Delifrance has this for you – their newest sweet Macaron desserts.

18th-century originated macarons are traditional French pastries, made of egg whites, almond powder, and sugar. These sweet pastries look like round meringue domes with a flat base. But Delifrance’s macarons are double decked and filled with cream in the middle, similar to the one invented by the French patisserie Ladurée in the 1800s.

Don’t confuse it with macaroons though, as these are dense cookies usually made with coconut.

Macarons or Macaroons?

Macarons or Macaroons?

Delifrance secret was said to be their use of finely ground almonds, which lend the treats a chewy texture and authentic almond taste. The egg whites, butter milk, and sugar completes the package.

These cream-filled macarons also come in five colors each representing a flavor.  The yellow one is Lemon, while the red and orange are Starwberry and Orange, respectively. But my favorites are the brown and green.

I didn’t know that they were differently-flavored at first, I thought they were just for aesthetic purposes. I had a bite of the brown one first and it turned out to be Mocha. I was glad it was not too sweet, as to what I expected from a coloured pastry. The red, orange and yellow were so-so. And finally I thought, what flavor could the green be? I thought it was pandan, but upon first bite alone, a cool minty after-taste was revealed and it was a nice surprise for me.  I love the green Choco Mint the most!

Get some Delifrance macarons and let your sweet tooth swoon with delight as well! Go Choco-Mint! =)
