Please note that this review was not paid for or sponsored by any third party. However, I was given a free sample of this product to review. The opinions in this review are strictly my own. I am not affiliated with Costco or any of its suppliers. I am just a fan of the company. I write these reviews to help my fellow shoppers.
There’s six different flavors in the box, crème brulee, dulce de leche, pistachio, red velvet, chocolate and mandarin and chocolate. My favorite is red velvet and the chocolate and mandarin. They’re all good though! Honestly I don’t dislike any of the flavors. The Costco Tipiak French Macarons are little delicate, light, beautiful, flavor packed delightful cookies. They’re crunchy, chewy and soft all at the same time. The almond flour gives them a slight hint of nuttiness as well.
I paid $19.99 Canadian for the box of 36 macarons.
The best before date is about three weeks from the date I purchased the macarons. They also need to be kept refrigerated. These are perfect to have as a treat at home or to serve at your next party of get together.
The nutrition information varies slightly depending on the flavor but generally you’re looking at about 150-160 calories, four to eight grams of fat and 16 to 20 grams of sugar for three macarons. Macarons are very light and not very filling, they’re basically sugar, almond flour and egg whites with flavoring. These aren’t extremely high in calories or fat considering the nutrition information is for three macarons. They do have a good amount of sugar.
These are much cheaper than macarons you can buy at your local bakery and to be honest taste just as good as some bakery macarons I've tried! If you're a macaron fan you might want to pick these up to try from Costco.
Which flavor do you think would be your favorite?
