So Many Macarons, So Little Time!! All The Tastes of New York Explores The Top Dessert Bars!
Paris’ most popular dessert, macarons, is taking the nation by storm! With the help of Dana’s Bakery outlets all over the city, these aren’t your mother’s macarons! All The Taste of New York, New York City’s source for fun food crawls and food tours, had to see what all of the fuss over macarons was about!
Dana’s Bakery brings you a unique experience by revolutionizing the traditional French macaron with an authentic American twist. With flavors like Pink Lemonade, Birthday Cake, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Fruity Cereal, and Key Lime Pie, there’s a flavor for every sweet tooth.
A gluten-free treat made with almond flour, macarons are a wonderful dessert that can be enjoyed by all palates in need of a quick sweet fix.
I grabbed my macaron from Dylan’s Candy Bar on 3rd Avenue at 60th St. It was a bit of a challenge to make it to the second floor without falling prey to the array of sweet treats and gummy bears first, but the macarons were at the top of the stairs waiting like a prize for good behavior!
The assortment of flavors was absolutely enchanting, and the creative combinations were made to tantalize the taste buds. When it came down to it, the Red Velvet and S’mores were head to head. The gooey marshmallow and chocolate filled s’mores macaron, however, did emerge the victor; it was was practically eaten in one very satisfying bite!
If you would like to enjoy this sumptuous array of French macarons, then come to All The Tastes of New York’s First Annual Food and Wine Festival held at the Metropolitan Pavilion on October 17th, 2013! Tickets will go on sale soon at www.allthetastesofnewyork.com.
