Something Sweet for the Soul

Hi Guys,

When you know that I am the Candy Queen of Metal, you know that you can expect something sweet every once in a while on my blog.

Today we are talking about Macaroons. I recently had my very first macaroon when I was in Stuttgart. They always appealed to me because of their color, but the taste is even greater. These are again stones for the stomach, so don't eat too many of them. Your wallet might hurt after buying a couple of these, they are 1 euro a piece, but they are little bombs of heaven. My favorite is the pistachio and mango. My sister also tried her first macaroon and was not sure how they would taste like, by looking at them. She was a little skeptical at the beginning but changed her mind quickly after tasting it.

If you'd like to know a bit more about the history of Macaroons you could visit this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaron

Next time when I am in Paris, I shall pay a visit to Laduree.

Bon Appetit!

Love,

  13. Wow, those look awesome! They're different in appearance from the macaroons we have here in the U.S. They actually look like they taste better, too. I'll have to see if there's a place in Atlanta that sells the European version. Thanks for sharing! :-D

  21. The next time you are in Switzerland you should go to Linth and Sprüngli and buy some "Luxemburgerlis". The best Macaroons in the whole wide world!
