Source for macarons (not macaroons) online or close to Austin?

Hello everybody, I am looking to get some macarons as a Christmas gift. They are also sometimes called Luxemburgerli. These are not macaroons, but instead two small meringue-like cookies sandwiched with a flavored filling. I did see a previous post where somebody was looking for them in Austin:

But I am interested in online sources, unless somebody has begun to make them in Austin. The photo in the first post in that previous topic is exactly what I am looking for. I have found two sources online, one called Mad Mac in New York (http://madmacnyc.com/product_macarons...) and one called Paulette in Beverly Hills (http://www.paulettemacarons.com/go/we...).

I am wondering if anybody has sampled macarons from either of those companies, or from any other company that will deliver. Unfortunately, Sprungli in Zurich will not ship to the US, because the product is so perishable. If anybody has actually tried any that are available online, I'd love to know.

Thanks,

Angus
