*Lette Macarons provided me with macarons to sample. All opinions are mine.
You all know that macarons are all kinds of awesome and yummy. I’m about to do a few projects with Lette so when they invited me down to their Fashion Island location to taste their seasonal praline flavor I said, “HECK YES!”
I took my youngest with me on a day when he didn’t have preschool. I had told him we were going to eat some cookies and immediately felt really bad for disrespecting the macarons like that. Because these are not just cookies. But he’s 4 so he doesn’t really know how special these French treats are yet.
I think there are a few reasons that I love macarons. First, they usually come in the most amazing flavors. On this day in particular, Lette had some in salted caramel and chocolate but then also more unusual flavors like violet and earl grey. And then the colors are so amazing! I mean, how gorgeous are these! For someone who likes to plan parties and entertain, finding things that look beautiful and taste delicious are a dream come true!
I was able to meet the store manager, Roni, at the store that day. I really enjoyed hearing about the company and how they are growing. Look for a store near you soon San Diego! I’m so grateful that she let me come in and sample some of these amazing sweets and I got to see all the ways you can use macarons at a party.
If you are near Fashion Island, or one of their Los Angeles stores, you must pop in! The stores are light and bright and just plain happy. And of course you need to try as many as your stomach can handle. I can’t wait to go back and try out some more flavors! I wasn’t sure how my son would like the more unusual flavors but he really enjoyed them all. Passion Fruit was probably my favorite – so tart and flavorful!
I totally died over this display! How rad is this! This would be so amazing at a party, right?! Weddings, of course, but I think this would be so perfect for a little girl’s tea party! They also can provide them in cool little favor boxes. Have you had the opportunity to try a Lette Macaron?
