A taste test to see if Ladurée really has the best macarons in Paris! They win in the packaging department, hands down!

Macarons are one of my favorite treats in Dallas and I happen to have two friends who each have macaron businesses in Dallas, so of course, I had to do extensive macaron research in Paris! When Stephen came to visit me in Paris, I enlisted his help in taste tasting 6 flavors from Ladurée and he was happy to oblige! There are a TON of flavors to choose from, so I recommend selecting your own because some flavors are strange (black licorice- no thanks).

There are multiple locations in Paris, with the Champs Elysées location being the most famous (and most crowded), so I would avoid that shop in particular. I visited a shop near my apartment and barely had a line, so I didn't feel rushed at all while selecting my flavors. One of my favorite things about Ladurée is that you also get to choose your box; I chose pink, of course! 

Flavors from Left to Right: salted caramel, ??? (seriously, I can't remember! ugh!), vanilla, framboise (raspberry), passion fruit, rose

I personally like the fruity flavors because they're always a safe bet; vanilla was light and delicious, salted caramel was one of my favorites, but....rose tasted like perfume. Sad to say, but I wasn't a fan. I probably should have chosen another flavor, but it looked so cute that I was fooled into selecting it. haha now I know! 

At almost 3 euros each, these macs are an expensive treat, but I saved the box, so that counts as a souvenir too, right?
