Gluttony XI: Macarons vs. Macaroons

Posted in Food Blogs, Gluttony with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego

IMG00137-20090831-2313French macarons are a recent addition to my life. Before it was strictly the coconut-based deli bakery-style macaroon.

Ever since this watershed moment, the two delectable pastries have been vying for my heart’s love.

I was immediately a fan of the assortment of flavors one could find with these sweet treats (Paulette in Beverly Hills provided the above dozen), but the fresh coconut in a chocolate dipped macaroon still takes the cake. Although the French are determined to win me over with their chocolate dipped macaron ice cream sandwich.

Stay tuned for further developments in this battle for one man’s heart.

Space, a French synth-pop band from 1977 from the future. Play this once and it’s all over.

Tell me this wouldn’t have made for a ridiculous 8-bit track on NES.
