le macaron

It's a store selling macaroons!

le macaron

These are what I purchased, they look kind of weird:

Macaroons from le macaron

And they taste weird, too:

Inside a le macaron macaroon

French macaroons have a crispy outer shell, which shatters when you bite it, flinging shards of macaroon everywhere. Inside is a mushy glob, which is much too sweet, even for my American palete. I guess you're supposed to enjoy the flavor, but with the sweetness it reminds one of medicine.

Worst cookie ever!

(I suspect these are actually tiny pavlovas, a dessert from Australia and New Zealand.)
