Oh noe! The mice have eated them all!!
Well - actually I didn't think to take a picture before us humans nommed them but below is a picture of what the contents would have looked like.
The pink one at the bottom was what we both had. Picture blatantly stolen from fellow food blog The Hungry Girl Chronicles who has also tried these.
I'm not sure whether a macaron (and that is the spelling they use!) is a cake or a biscuit really, but as it starts off soft I'm guessing it's a mini cake. They are convenient and pretty little things though and as a quick google suggests there are many variations on the basic theme.
I wasn't expecting that much from such a small thing, and as my tastes are gravitating away from sweet things as I age I didn't know what to expect. This was pleasantly surprising. The mint of the creme was hinted at by my partner as she ate hers first, but still came as a shock. Balanced with the softness of the outer and the coconut that lingered afterwards it all worked quite well. I think a couple of these with a posh cup of tea would be 'delightful'.
At £1.25 each they are a little expensive, and the shelf life suggested to eat on day of purchase, but they were actually a nice little indulgence. I'd have to at least try a few more of the colours to see if they tasted differently anyway.
