The inside of the macarons looks like more of a jelly in comparison to Pam's buttercream-y kind of macaron middle. And it is well-known how I love her raspberry buttercream. I don't know what's technically "supposed" to be inside a macaron but I don't care. I know what I like.
We were kind of in a hurry and our car was near AMC so I just decided to throw caution to the wind and try them. B and E got some other cookies from this place so I picked up two macarons. WOW. I was blown away- in both price and taste. They were super expensive, to me. Expense is obviously relative as I'm not sure what they would normally cost. I don't remember Pam's pricing and she always gave me a deal anyway. I think in the mall they were like $2.95/each but they were REALLY good.
I went online to see pictures, flavors and prices and almost choked. Six for $16, Twelve for $32 and 32 for $93. Now, I don't know if they're THAT good to pay that much money. I mean, I could probably eat $32 over the course of a week and $93 is steep. I tried to see what the shipping would be but I had to fill out all my info and give a credit card and I didn't want to do that.
So, if you don't care about paying $2.50-$3 per macaron, I highly recommend these. They have a lot of interesting flavors. I had raspberry and strawberry and I thought they were fab.
