We have all seen the adorable pictures bloggers and insta-celebs have been posting featuring the cute little cookie, the Macaroon. Macaroon’s are not only super photogenic, but they are delish and tend to come in really unique flavor profiles like Pistachio Almond or Blueberry Lemonade.
Macaroons sound pretty much perfect, except for one thing – the price tag that comes along with these little guys. You can find Macaroons in their cute little French Patisseries or Coffee Shops ranging anywhere from $2.50 to $4.00 for just one! Luckily for us, there are alternative options for those who do not always feel like dropping a pretty penny for a “fancy oreo” – head over to one of these places to get your Macaroon fix at nearly half the cost.
Trader Joes – This place has it all. You can buy a 10 pack of Chocolate Vanilla Macaroons for $4.99 here. Head over in the fall to get your Pumpkin fix or in the summer to get sweet Lemon varieties.
Whole Foods – My heaven in a grocery store. Head over to their bakery section to check out their rotational selection of Macaroons. Lavender is by far my favorite if you are able to catch it in time!
Dana’s Bakery – my favorite online shop to order these perfect little treats! The absolute best spot to get a holiday present, a housewarming gift or just to send someone a little pick me up to brighten their day! Try their Champagne Celebration – it is my favorite gift to bring to a holiday dinner party!
