Product Review: Trader Joe's Macarons

Trader Joe's new dessert, Macarons.  Macarons are a French dessert, and it literally means "paste".  There are total of 12 in one box, and 6 chocolate, and 6 vanilla macarons.  1 serving, which is 2 macarons, yields about 90 calories, which is not bad.  Personally, I actually like the vanilla macarons better, even though I am a serious chocoholic.  The cookies on the outside are crumbly and crispy, but quite light.  The filling inside is soft and creamy vanilla buttercream for the vanilla, and chocolate ganache for the chocolate macarons.  The chocolate ganache fillings are a bit chewy, which I expected it to be soft and creamy instead.  The macarons are not too sweet, and overall it is quite delightful.  

I give it a 6 out of 10.
