McDonald’s macarons – controversial I know. How many times have I ranted about hollow shells, overpriced pieces of crap (pardon my French) but now McDonald’s can produce these babies to be at least consistently average – these should be the bare minimum standard for Adelaide macarons. At $2 for one or $10 for 6 ($1.70 each) – that’s damn cheap and affordable to satisfy mad cravings. I’ve actually had 14 macarons in a mere 3 days, enough said ;)

So what does an apple pie macaron actually taste like? The cream filling had an artificial apple taste with a very strong cinnamon flavour which sadly was not to my liking. However the shells were not hollow and had a crisp crunch – a bit more biscuit than a macaron.

The passionfruit macaron shell by itself tasted like wheat but when eaten with the filling it made it my second favourite flavour. The filling had a buttery cream with passionfruit seeds mixed in – biting through the seeds released the tasty sweet passionfruit flavour.

Ladies and gents, this is my favourite macaron flavour! The cappuccino macaron reminded me of kopico (coffee candy) – light sweet coffee cream filling mmm, such a delight!

The blueberry macaron just tasted like bubblegum zooper dopers – cream based filling had a subtle bubblegum sweetness :)

The chocolate macaron had a light, mild chocolate filling but I found it to be a little artificial.

Mmm mango, sweet delicious mango. It was toots a mango icecream but in macaron form with lovely hints of mango sweetness in the filling.

I actually had no idea this was a raspberry macaron as it reminded me of redskins. The slight tartness cutting through the mild redskin flavour made it quite tasty.

Even taking photos my mind was going: “wow this is a lot of effort for Maccas.” I couldn’t knock the scepticism out of me until I tried them and boy, I was surprised. For macaron snobs out there – McDonald’s macarons are much heavier and sweeter. There is no melt in your mouth element where it is impossible to tell the transition from shell to filling. However, I am not here to crucify these poor macarons – I love how they reminded me of sweet things I ate as a child and for me to even find somewhere that I would actually go back to is saying much more than words could.
