Sex, The City and The Macarons

You see them, right?
How can you miss them?
They are the macarons ~ in the Sex and The City 2 movie, coming out next week. They play a starring role of sorts. Women fall for them. They are irresistible!

NPR reported about the trendiness of this French treat back in February, 2010 ... but look - they misspelled "Macaroon"! It's actually - as all of you Paris bloggers and blog readers know - "macaron." 

I have never tasted one and vow that I never will ...

ღ♥♥ღ´¯`•.¸¸. Until Paris! ღ♥♥ღ´¯`•.¸¸.

Bonjour Cynthia,

I bought some macarons the other day here in Montreal. They were a dollar each. Very delicious but I would take a cupcake any day over a macaron. I looked at recipes and decided that way to difficult. Its too much work for me. They dissolve in your mouth after 2 bites. Thanks for sharing.

Just found your website through Paris Breakfasts and can feel your excitement for Paris by reading through your posts.
I've posted about my trips there over the years and think it is the most spectacular city.
I hope your trip is everything you want it to be!

I am embarrassed to say that on all my trips to Paris, I have never once had a macaron... Then again, I don't have a big sweet tooth. But everybody goes on so about these treats, that next time, I will definitely try one!

PS I forgot to say, I'm going to see Sex and The City 2 on my birthday, May 30th, with one of my best friends.

From the BBC series on Paris, Blood and Chocolate (Part 2 of 3). Enjoy!
