7-Eleven French Macarons Review!

7-Select French Macarons

Here’s another point that goes toward 7-Eleven being the best convenience store ever. Actually, we can give them 4 points – one for each flavor of these macaron cookies.

If you’re unfamiliar – macaron cookies are a fancy cookie sandwiches. They’re traditionally made in an extremely delicate balance of egg whites and almond flour primarily. They’re not easy to make – I’ve tried several times, years ago.

Luckily, bakeries have macaron production on lock! If you’ve never had one, they have a slightly crunchy exterior with a chewy bite underneath and TONS OF FLAVOR because of the filling.

They are the best. I’ve only had some when I went into a bakery or saw a package sold in the frozen food section. So it was great to see these in a more accessible place.

They come in packages of 4 cookies / 2 flavors. The ones I had were the flavor combination of Vanilla/Raspberry and Chocolate/Pistachio.

Want to discuss the flavor first in more detail?

Well the raspberry was an explosion of fruity flavor with a little bit of tangy flavor, too.

The vanilla macarons had real vanilla bean in the cream/custardy filling. Really. good.

Chocolate was the best chocolate cookie that I ever had.

Pistachio is my go-to flavor in a macaron bakery. I’m glad to tell you guys that this flavor is still wonderful.

The texture of these is just as perfect as the taste is.

7-Eleven found the perfect bakery to make these confections for them. In the package it says they were made in Belgium.

Would I buy these again? Sometimes I do but the downside is that 4 cookies has almost a days worth of sugar. That’s a good reason to share these cookies with a friend and to savor each bite!

Have you had these yummy cookies yet? Which ones are your favorite flavor?

  1. It looks like seven eleven has changed discretely their maccaron recipe, cheapen them by A LOT , the taste is very mediocre so is the texture yet the price remained unchanged, nor the packaging…

    Sad they had the best commercial maccaron of all .

    Please bring the first version back ..

    You can t fool the customers that buy these type of items.. unlike regular cookies.. maccaron catch the eye and wallet of specific type of clientele…

    1. You’re right! People who seek out macarons can recognize the quality. It’s sad to hear that 7/11 changed the recipe! I haven’t even seen them lately 😦 Thanks for your comment!

  2. I was so excited when I came across these macaroons! The first 7-11 had the choc/pistachio flavored ones. I love pistachio flavored anything, so it was a real treat. Both flavors were rich and creamy. Only thing is I had to drive to another location to try the van/ras kind.. they were good also but I prefer the choco/pistachio.. wished they sold them at the same location.. either way they r a must buy..
