I have heard lots about this brand. And though I love french macaroons, I am not that keen into branded ones. I know there is a store in Hong Kong, but I didn’t know that we were going to be anywhere near it, but we were. Literally 3 minutes away from our hotel was a branch of Laduree, the famous brand touted for its macarons. I was debating between buying a box and and just trying a few. I ended up trying one for me, mom, and my older sister. And if we super liked it, we can buy a box going home.
I got the pistachio (was choosing between pistachio and chocolate), my sister got the praline, and mom got the gingersnaps. I liked the praline flavor the best, but the macarons, well, they were nothing to die for. Costing about P150 each or three times the usual cost here, I didn’t find them something to wow over. So simply put, I didn’t buy a box of it to bring home. At least I have tried it 🙂
