Happy (early) Halloween. Orange-Passionfruit Macarons from Ladurée, six lined in a row. Limited edition treasures, brightly colored, just for Halloween. The tart of the passionfruit/lilikoi balances out the sweet orange. Pistachio and rose still tie as my favorite flavors, but this is mighty fun. They’ve been available at the shop for a few days now, and come appropriately in a noir case trimmed with gold. More sexy than scary, it’s a keepsake to add to our ever growing collection of macaron boxes.
I’m not a Halloween person (you’ll catch me avoiding crowds, inside with a movie that night)….but as far as these macarons go? Yes, please. And for once we have a leg up on the Paris locations of Ladurée: this flavor is available only in NYC, heheh.
