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!
