“Macarons only weigh a few grams, but that’s enough to leave your senses quivering with pleasure. Their thin, crisp shell, slightly rounded shape, tempting colors and tender interiors draw devotees to devour them with their eyes, and caress their smooth surface. Their flavors solicit the nose and, when one biters into that crisp shell, the ears tingle with pleasure and the palate is finally rewarded.”
