Sweet Shop

I was in the mall, as usual, on a Saturday night. Garden State Plaza. I normally get a slice of chocolate chip cookie pie downstairs at a kiosk by the food court. Or a box of six Baked By Melissa cupcakes. But we were on the opposite end of the mall by that circle area OVER the food court. By The Children's Place and the hallway toward AMC. I had been seeing this little kiosk with French Macarons over there. I never bought any because I really didn't believe any could compare to Pam's at A La Cupcakes. The kiosk brand is called "Woops!"

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.
