I had the pleasure of meeting Diane from DD’s Macarons a few weeks ago. I could hardly contain my excitement when I practically skipped back to my desk at work to dig in to what is clearly the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. I knew that if these macarons were half as delicious as Diane was adorable, I was in for a treat.
If you bring anything to my attention that incorporates sugary child-flavored cereal, I am in. I am pretty much a 7 year old stuck in the body of a 33 year old. When I stumbled upon DD’s macarons, all I could think of was Fruity Pebble and Cinnamon Toast Crunch macarons. Does the world really need anything else? Just park me in front of some Saturday Morning Cartoons with a box of these beauties, and I am set. You won’t hear a peep out of me. That is until my box is empty.
What I love about DD’s macarons were the plethora of flavors. We have traditional and whimsical. Your standard chocolate or lemon, of course. Want something a little more unique, have a cookie butter or a strawberry lemonade.
I was lucky enough to sample quite the variety of flavors. Red velvet, Fruity Pebbles, PBJ, Cookie Butter, white chocolate, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
It’s pretty clear how I feel about the cereal flavors, but let the record show that everything was pretty spectacular. The Cooke Butter was another favorite. And this whole time I thought the Speculoos cookies were the perfect vessel for Cookie Butter. Turns out, it is a meringue shell. The PBJ brought back some childhood memories. The best part is, no crust to cut off.
What I am about to tell you next is going to shock you, so you might want to sit down. Seriously though. Are you sitting yet? DD’s Macarons are only $12 for a box of a dozen (With two flavors). Yes, that means you are looking at a meager $1.00 a macaron. Speaking as someone who is used to paying at the very least $2.00 a piece, this is better than winning the lotto. My husband jokes that I need a macaron category in our budget like one budgets groceries and gas. So, to find macarons that are reasonable, but at the same time, completely spectacular makes me remember why I started this blog in the first place.
Currently, DD’s Macarons are available for pickup in Plano. You can place your order on the website. You’re going to have a hard time narrowing down your flavor choices. So, do what any logical person would do; order a few dozen! After all, you can get two dozen macarons for the cost of the dozen you would get at most other places. Seems like the only logical choice. I mean, I wouldn’t want you to have to choose between Nutella and Chocolate Peanut Butter. What kind of friend would I be?
