WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I have been a Macaron connoisseur for 20 + years and My Fare Lady macarons are the best. They burst with flavor in your mouth – they’re impeccably consistent.
The salted caramel is my favorite, the chocolate mocha is my 2nd favorite… you can sit and eat these all day long
Charlette brought us some [macaron] samples to the office, and they were just out of this world. Of course I’ve been trying to watch my figure, but never mind that when it comes to the macarons.
I thought the macarons were extremely tasty.I just thoroughly enjoyed the way they melted in my mouth.
I love the macarons; my new favorite dessert is now the salted caramel. Thanks! I really love them with coffee
My favorite one, I am a country boy, so the peach cobbler. That reminded me of my grandmother’s peach cobbler and it was FANTASTIC.
