We all have guilty pleasures.
Sometimes, it’s hard to pin down exactly what it might be. For some, it might be music. For others, it might be a game. Or an activity. Or food.
There are times a guilty pleasure might be embarrassing. Then there are times where … it’s just something you don’t always want to indulge in.
For me, it’s a certain food. It’s one that I can’t get too often in my area, so when I get it, I tend to cherish it. Add to the fact that I am trying to be a lot healthier, these items are also something that I have to watch in that regard as well.
My guilty pleasure (at least one of them), are French macarons.
If you’ve had traditional French macarons, you know what I’m talking about here. Each bite is delightful. The different flavors you can get are incredible. It’s almost a bit of heaven each time you chew down.
My goodness. Just thinking about them makes me smile.
Whenever I go to a city, I always try and look up if they have places to get macarons. The closest to me is in the Scranton area, but it’s a neat little store with amazing macarons. I’ve gotten them in Philly, New York City, Saratoga … I know there are a few other places.
This is my weak spot, though.
If you have never had macarons (and I’m not talking about those “macaroons” cookies), then I would encourage you to find a bakery that has good ones. When they are fresh, they are amazing. I like, too, that there seems to be a lot of room for flavors, which makes it even better.
Now I want some macarons.
How about all of you? Have you had some real macarons? Do you like? And what is your guilty pleasure?
