Napoléon’s Macarons

6 Feb

MacaronsWhile downtown last night, we stopped in to what used to be Ben & Jerry’s at the Paseo Nuevo Mall. It is now Napoléon’s Macarons. As a HUGE fan of Ladurée’s Macarons, I was excited to try these. There was a big sign that greeted us letting us know that they were all gluten-free.

GF MacaronsWe ended up getting a box of different flavors – Passion Fruit, Raspberry, Pistachio, Chocolate and Salted Caramel. The consistency wasn’t quite like the Ladurée macarons. The salted caramel and chocolate flavors actually felt a little chewy but it might have been because it was the end of the day. It was still nice to have a GF snack option downtown!

    Thank You so much for this post! I have added “Napoleon’s Macrons” to my Gluten-Free Restaurant list. I teach Gluten-Free cooking classes in the homes of my health coaching clients. Please pass on anyone who needs to get comfortable cooking and eating Gluten-Free, and I’d be happy to help teach them! http://www.thepleasurepromise.com/gluten-free-restaurants-in-santa-barbara/
