Alice, my best gal pal, came back from an enviable shopping trip in Paris and presented me with a box of the most amazing macaroons I have ever tasted.
I have heard of Laduree, before, I vaguely remember it being mentioned in one of the old episodes of “Sex in the city”, or was that cupcakes? Of course, when I saw the packaging, I was completely bowled over. Complete with sweet motifs and dreamy pastel shades, the box of macaroons looked fit for a princess.
I am a real fan of good packaging (recycle activists will turn in their graves, I know). I believe that the packaging is a prelude to the total experience of a product, much like foreplay…
Anyway, it looks almost too good to eat, but upon the urging of Alice who was positively salivating beside me, I sunk my teeth into a green pistachio macaroon. Now I must admit I am not a huge fan of pastries, but these little yummy wonders are just something else.
It pairs really well with tea, and makes for a lovely afternoon snack. With good company and good music, what more could a girl ask for?
