For some reason, I've been on a bit of a macaron addiction of lately. There is a little French bakery near my work that fulfils my sweet needs during my lunch breaks. I love some of the more unusual flavours that people are doing in macarons. I had a black sesame flavoured one the other week that very much rocked my world!!!
The one thing that I have noticed in Hong Kong is their love for all things French... there is even a major French festival here! Naturally with their love of frenchy stuff, there are plenty of stores filled with the beautiful coloured goodness of macarons.
While window shopping in Hong Kong, I was enticed by the Laduree window. It's sugary goodness, the pastel colours - they were totally calling me. An entire counter full of beautifully coloured macarons awaited!!!
We decided upon a box of 8... which was about $25AUD... not exactly cheap but we did have fantastic service and some free chocolate testing as well! Also, the packaging and branding is absolutely beautiful... you are definitely buying into the brand.
