I have seen and tried AG Macarons at the Delicious Food Show and the Christmas Pop up Shop near Yonge Dundas Square. I have enjoyed there macs oh let’s face it I wouldn’t be on my third testing if I didn’t right. When I was walking on the Queensway I saw a French Macaron Tower in the window and realized I had found the bricks & mortar storefront and I made a quick detour.
I went in and looked at some of their other offerings before I went in today for the main show. Meringues, Belgian and dark chocolate fused chocolate candy, Aprons, boxed gourmet teas and cards were also for sale here. If I needed a quick last minute hostess gift or an impromptu present this would be the perfect spot. Everything you need is right there. After a quick look around I went to the macs and the flavours we tested were Salted Caramel, Blackberry Cassis, Chocolate Peanut butter, Mint Chocolate, Birthday Cake, Red Velvet and Cinnamon Heart as the Flavour of the Month. A box of 6 will cost $13 and the only downside is that only types tender they take are cash or credit is. Thank goodness I had a twenty on me or I would have had to change my order as I’m not one to use a credit card for things so tiny like this, especially when it’s a treat. That aside the macs tasted the same as every time I have encountered them, which shows some consistency which I like to see.
I tasted the Mint chocolate – I wasn’t a fan of the chocolate inside as it was a bit too hard for my liking, but the birthday cake, salted caramel and the February Valentines Themed Cinnamon heart tasted as it should. The shell was hard when I tapped it but once I bit into it, it crumbled and the feet on the macs were perfect. Mr. C. of course enjoyed his three; but these aren’t in my top three I would say in Toronto – my top 4 for sure. French Macaron classes are also offered and if my next attempt turns out poorly I may just consider enrolling in the class.
