When I travel for work, I love to bring back something special as a gift for my team. From the beginning, I had planned on bringing back macarons to my team from my trip to Paris. Our first opportunity to try macarons was just as we left the Louvre. You exit into a high-end mall. We stopped by the food court to grab a bite and plan our next steps. We spotted the macarons first, and then realized we were at a McCafe.
We ordered the prepacked box of 5 to share. We cut them in half so that we could both try them out.
I’m just going to say that I didn’t end up bringing macarons home to my team! I guess these are an acquired taste….I prefer a good ole oatmeal cookie!
