    You have 2 different descriptions of the product in the title and in the body text.

    A Macaroon and a Macaron are two entirely different things! A Macaroon is like a cake! The offer is for macarons not macaroons!

      I blame Masterchef for this.

        I agree.

        I will correct anyone in an instant who pronounces it like an idiot.

      I must say the Wiki image for Macaron is absolutely grotesque

    +1 simply for having the name 'cheapskateasian'

      But cheapskate is already implied if you're Asian.

    I've been reading about Macarons for years, they have been huge in Canada and the USA. Only very recently did they start to pop up here. Personally I think they are very, very overrated. And way too expensive considering they are just egg whites and food colouring. It's just a fad, hopefully a fad that will go away soon.

    However, this is a good price for what they are, so +1.

      "Hopefully a fad that will go away soon", so like Justin Bieber and One Direction? Yes please.

      apparently it is very hard to make them at home (looking good especially)- probably why they are popular

    Was in France a few months ago … GF saw Gabriel Gate on TV raving about a place called "Fauchon" … so got dragged along … Was 20 euro for a box of 10 … these pissy little things the size of a 20 cent piece

    Maccas in Paris also had them (but for half the price)

    The chocolate eclair there I had however was beyond awesome

    The highlight of my Paris trip was this however :-)

    they are yummy, but could you imagine if an anzac biscuit was $2 each instead of $2 a pack

    Girl speaking here. Macarons aren't really that great, but I think we just buy into the hype. They are pretty and dainty, and I guess quite cute. Personally, I don't really find them that tasty to be honest. However, I still buy into the hype, recently spending 880 yen (around $11) for a decorated and larger macaron in Japan (The Ispahan at Lauduree, Shinjuku)…
