When people ask me where to get macarons I will say McDonald’s – this either gets a look of disbelief or they think I am being sarcastic. I’m not saying they are amazing but for something consistent and to shove down a craving I would go to McDonald’s – I’ve had way too many disappointments in Adelaide. If you’ve had a taste of France then I’m afraid you’ll be a bit screwed like me – there is nothing that tastes like France in Adelaide.
Walking into McDonald’s after a morning run (#fatlife) I noticed they have new macaron flavours! I actually like them better than their old flavours. The strawberries and cream was a sweet strawberry candy flavour like Japanese strawberry candy. It wasn’t too bad where the shell itself was crunchy but not dry or hollow inside.

Dusted with cocoa powder the mint chocolate macaron was like a mint slice where you do get that minty hit :)

Salted caramel is one of my favourite flavours and even McDonald’s has gotten onto this trend. This didn’t really taste like anything to me as it was neither caramel nor salty. Will need to give this a go again incase I got a dud one …

The pineapple and coconut really surprised me as it had a creamy filling with a slight tangy sweet pineapple taste. Yum!

During Christmas 2013 McDonald’s released some new flavours but I think these were limited edition. The candy cane looked super cute with crunchy sugar cubes in the macaron shell. A hint of mint flavour in the cream based filling giving it a slight sweetness.
Never fear but the cappuccino and chocolate macaron is still around – think McDonald’s is catching onto with what works and what doesn’t.
