I have only eaten a few that I have loved and they were all from one little shop in Melbourne (the cupcake family in QV for those playing at home!), and they have fresh berries in them, all others have just not been my cup of tea... though I don't like tea... or macarons for that matter.
Wow, how crappy are the macarons that McDonalds and Woolworths sell??? Do you mean the fast food giant? All I could think of was little macarons on the fast food assembly line being manhandled by teenagers. That made me laugh out loud. :)
I lol and snorted! I hate teenagers touching my food. I bought a cone at McD's a few months ago and the slimeball at the pick up window had his greasy bare hands off the little paper and on the cone part, and was smirking at me, so I got it and thanked him and pulled forward and chucked it in the bushes. NO FREAKING WAY am I eating something a dirty boy teenager with that look on his face touched. YUCK!
Macarons haven't even made it to NKY yet. We have a TON of cupcake shops and they all suck. There was one that had good cupcakes but she was selling them for less than $2 and was working another job to pay the bills, even though she was always busy. Rumor has it she had a heart attack, and she is in her early 40's. Someone bought the place, and kept the name, but her cupcakes suck.
