Sucre Macarons Review + Giveaway

Sucre Macarons

Back in May, the folks over at Sucre sent me a lovely box of macarons. I must admit that I was more than a little skeptical. You see, I'm not a big fan of overly sweet treats. What I imagined store-bought macarons to be was a sickly sweet meringue filled with a super-sweet filling. Not that appealing.

My first bite changed my mind.

They were not overly sweet and actually had a lovely flavor. I shared a few with my husband's grandparents who also enjoyed them. 
My favorite flavors were the strawberry and pistachio.

Sucre also carries chocolates, coffee, nuts, gift sets and more. Their King Cake intrigues me.
If you're looking to impress someone with a delicious gift, I highly recommend the Signature Macarons

Would you like to get your hands on a box of these scrumptious macarons?

Here's how to enter for a chance to win a box for yourself (or someone you love, or want to impress):

  17. Current dessert craving...pain au chocolat. Our Panera has something similar but they just don't compare to the ones I went to France as a chaperone with my son's French class this past spring. They are so flaky, and buttery and the perfect blend of sweet but not too sweet. Truly sublime... otherwise it would be a really ripe mango!

    As always my dessert love is a chocolate chip cookie warm from the oven.

    I would love to gift these lovely cookies to my niece who is gluten free (as are macaroons) and graduating this year. She has worked her tush off, got into her early decision school, yet still is plugging away at all her classes. She deserves a special treat because of all that and she is the sweetest.

  64. At the moment I am craving red velvet flavored dessert. My first and last maccaron experience was over the summer of 2013. I'm not the one for sweet tooth but it was a very sweet thoughtful gift I received before my short vacation ended. The box came with about 12 different flavors and they were all surprisingly just right! Thanks Sucre!
