Marvelous Macaroons

The one thing I wanted to do most of all in Paris was to visit Laduree and buy some of their macaroons.  Some of you will remember my attempts at making my own macaroons and I wanted to taste the best that Paris had to offer and I was told that Laduree is most definitely that.  We went past the tea room and shop on the tour bus and I actually let out an excited squeal!  Once we were off the bus we made our way there and I bought a little box of heaven and a couple to eat right there... hehe







I bought home Morello & Almond, Soft Salted Caramel, Chocolate, Raspberry, Orange Blossom and Chocolate & Blackcurrant.  I had a salted caramel whilst in Paris and also tried a bite of the raspberry, chocolate and chocolate & blackcurrant.  They were all absolutely perfect.  The salted caramel is most definitely my favourite so far and I am not a caramel kinda girl normally.  Absolute perfection.  

We also had to pay a visit to a McDonalds the day after all those shots as nothing else was going to clear the hangover.  I discovered that McDonalds in Paris also sells macaroons so I decided to buy a box and see what they were like.  They looked nice but I wish I hadn't.  They are horrid :( Even my macaroons tasted better than the McDonalds ones!




The McDonalds did cure my hangover though!
