I got called to work today and will be until Saturday. So I'm off to Pasadena. I don't mind since I will be close to Euro Pane for my macaron fix. :)
So driving all over town doing last-minute shopping. Of course, I had to make a quick stop there. Woohoo, they had all flavors today so got one of each. First up is espresso with bittersweet chocolate ganache (top left with cracks). Now I know why they had the least amount of this kind, it was sooo good, the espresso hits you right away then ganache slowly melts in your mouth which ends with a mocha flavor. My first taste of this flavor, I like!
Next up is Pistachio. Crisp, then chewy, cold buttercream melting away, mmmm.
Third bite: Raspberry. Nice with floral undertones. I wonder if they put a little rosewater in the buttercream, hmm.
Fourth bite: Lavender. Another nice one, not overbearing, doesn't taste like perfume like others I've had.
The best for last? Chocolate and Salted-Caramel. One of my faves, I always get one of these.
(Oy, I need a manicure!)
And yes, I was eating and driving. In the rain. But only took pictures when I was waiting for the traffic light to change. :) Note the second bite off the espresso mac, that might be my fave for now.
On the way home: 25-mile commute took 85 minutes but this rainbow made ride home worth it. Have a great week!
