Macaron ice cream sandwiches are back for the summer season, with new packaging to make them easier to eat on-the-go. This year’s flavors are Salted Caramel, Pistachio Raspberry, Coconut Mango and Passionfruit Cheesecake and are available for $5 each at all NYC locations of Francois Payard Bakery and Patisserie. My personal favorite – the passionfruit cheesecake; the tartness of the passionfruit balances out the rich cheesecake flavor really well. Salted caramel is also delicious; a friend loved the coconut mango (which I couldn’t try due to my coconut allergy), saying that its flavors reminded her of summer.

Get them while you can!

  • Are they the same size as a regular macaron? Because $5 for that is crazy.

    • They’re about the same shape and size as a regular ice cream sandwich from when we were kids. Even if it was the same size as a regular macaron, some places charge $3+ for a macaron! These sandwich really delicious ice cream! But no, these are bigger – great question, sorry I didn’t grab a better pic for perspective – they’re not round, they’re rectangular.

    • They’re actually much bigger than a regular macaron, i would say each rectangle is the size of roughly 2 round macarons, so these are a steal.

      I loveeeeed the pistachio raspberry – the raspberry flavor really stood out. I didn’t enjoy the coconut mango as much – it wasn’t as flavorful. I’ll have to try the other 2 flavors soon!

  • Passionfruit cheesecake sounds really good.
    thanks for the review.
