I have bought three boxes of these macarons from Amazon: twice for myself, and once for a friend across the country. Each time they’ve never disappointed. They come fresh in a well-protected box and ship quick. Not only are they beautiful looking, but they explode with flavor and practically melt in your mouth. It’s a joy to receive a box of these, and I guarantee that these make for a wonderful gift. Thank you very much for an excellent product and I look forward to ordering more in the future.
