Our family's hunt for the yummyiest french macarons started with my sister's friend coming from her honeymoon gave Lindt macarons as pasalubong.
Unfortunately, because I sleep early, I was not able to try even one. (The downside of having a big family? Food disappears fast! and I mean, really fast!) They were all gushing about how good it was the next morning. I didn't put much attention since I remember eating Bizu's french macarons and not liking it even one bit. Huh. But I did join the trying of all kinds of macarons we can find. :D
Then my boyfriend went on a trade mission to Australia. Out of curiosity, I asked him to buy two boxfuls for me. (Two, just to make sure I'll be able to eat one piece!)
I gave him this address:
Lindt & Sprüngli (Australia) Pty. Ltd.Level 7, 299 Elizabeth Street
Sydney NSW 2000
The obedient boyfriend went and saw the headquarters of Lindt in Australia. :D The offices are there, but no cafe. Bummer. He went back to his hotel only to notice a Lindt cafe right beside his hotel. *sheepish smile*
Thankfully, because he went through all that trouble he decided to bring home 5 boxes! :D *shall make more mistakes next time!*
Here's the one and only box I got to have all to myself!
I would have taken more pictures of only to make the most out of it (It costs php150 each!!!) but I got seduced and ate one after the other. (taking 5 bites each, 6 when I could manage!)
Check them out here:
I swear! They little pieces of heaven! The meringue was perfectly soft with a little crunch and the filling has just the right sweetness. Every flavor has its distinct taste. I loved the strawberry the best. The salted caramel and vanilla would be next in line. The christmas flavor (red and green) has a ginger tang going for it making it an interesting piece. The rest are also very good.
Note to self: Must go to Australia soon! :D
