During happier days, Mr Bb brought a box of macarons back from NYC for bB, from Macaron Parlour.
This box of macarons suffered a lot just to get to Singapore, including an overnight stay in Japan when Mr Bb’s flight got cancelled and he was stranded there overnight.
So by the time they got to Singapore, they were in quite a state… We flipped them over so they looked nicer in the peektures but most of them were cracked.
They would have been worse off if Macaron Parlour hadn’t packed them in such a good box.
He was curious about what the big deal was about macarons. So we ate a few right away…
On hindsight, we probably should have let them rest for a while, maybe a day or two. They were way too dehydrated over the long journey home and became kinda crunchy and weird. Or maybe transporting them for so many hours may not have been a good idea.
After a day or two in the fridge, bB tried a couple more.
Caramel Fleur de Sel and Red Velvet.
Wow. It was so much better after recovering some moisture! bB quite enjoyed this one. It was better than the salted caramel macarons from Jewels and ET.
The Red Velvet was slightly dry but quite yummy as well. I could see the potential of these being absolutely scrumptious if I had eaten them in NYC.
Passion fruit turned out to be really dry despite having had more time in the fridge.
And lastly, it was the famous Candied Bacon with Maple Cream Cheese.
I have to say that this one was AWESOME. This blows everything out the water. I could have an entire box of just this one flavour alone. And if I go to NYC, you bet I will be buying exactly a whole box of Candied Bacon with Maple Cream Cheese.
So because it wouldn’t be fair to judge the other flavours as they didn’t seem to have travelled so well, I still think Macaron Parlour is an awesome little shoppe run by two amazing people. Thank you so much to Simon for getting the macarons to Mr Bb in time at the office and for the correspondence! I would lovelovelove to visit you guys in person one day and have an accurate taste test of your macarons!
It looks like bB is gonna need to travel just to eat macarons! :)
