Bordeaux, France, taken on August 21, 2012
The only thing that appeals to me about macarons is their vibrant colours – otherwise they’re too sweet for my liking. However, would you still want one if they lost the colours that make them so attractive? :O (See the original photo in colour.)
The reason the title is macaro(o)n is because I don’t know what these are actually called. I’ve been under the impression that they are macaroOns, not the colourful, round macarons. However, the packaging says “macaroon” from Riquewihr so…enlighten me??? Maybe “macaron” is the French word for both macaron and macaroon? Maybe these are actually macarons and macaroons are just a figment of my imagination? Someone please get me out of this conundrum!
I had a craving for cakes from 48, so I dashed to get one before they closed. Didn’t realize there was a macaron on the one I got though. Macarons are way too sweet for me, but one is OK, occasionally.
