Instant Gratification - Trader Joe's Macarons

Macarons to me are delicious little treasures. They're not too easily found here on Long Island, and I'd feel heavily guilty about ordering them online. So, when I saw them in the freezer section of TJ's, I was ecstatic! I indulged last night and they were very very tasty, considering that they were at one point frozen.

They came in vanilla and chocolate, which was just okay, considering a good portion of the fun is the beautiful colors they usually come in. And mostly I'm a chocolate fan, but the vanilla was just heavenly - a nice, clean vanilla taste with a smidge of crunch from the meringue. The chocolate was good too, but very rich.

I'd definitely purchase them again to keep them in the freezer for a stash, or to have on hand for company. A nice little ending to a meal.
