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!
