I decided to give this dessert another try. In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned that the macaron I tasted was too sweet for my liking so naturally though I love the colours of it, I wasn't inclined to try it.

This is my second time trying macarons. I didn't like the range of flavours that were offered in the first shop I happened to pass by. I am not really experimentative with food and wanted something more mainstream...but this shop (maybe this was their seasonal offerings), had too many sophisticated flavours that I can't really visualize how the flavours would taste like :P The whole range was focused on tea-infused flavoured macarons. So I decided to give that a miss.

In the 2nd shop that I went to, I was happy to see that they had some mainstream flavours and I picked the strawberry macaron with vanilla cream to try.

The shell could be 30-40% less sweet still. But I did like the strawberry taste. It was flavourful and the vanilla cream complimented it so well. LOVE the vanilla cream.

I thought it would be the same like the previous macarons I tasted, until I bit into the middle of the macaron.

OOOhhh....I tasted the slightly tart strawberry jam/puree, whatever you call it. I love how it brings down the sweetness a bit. Heavenly.

I still have a few other flavours to try out, but I am liking this one so far..
