Ignorant About Macaroons

Guess what? I don't know what a macaroon is. I mean, REALLY is. I know what the eff they look like because everyone on the internet seems to wet their pants about macaroons. I thought they were like those chocolates called "rosebuds" that came in a box. (I wanted to find a picture of that box of chocolates called rosebuds, but when I googled "chocolate rosebuds" I got a bunch of results for gay porn. So I guess I found something else I don't know about. So much learning to do!)

I don't think some macaroons look too edible. They're always very bright and colourful and just don't seem like food. They sort of look like very childish buttons or something I'd want to throw at something. If something is dyed purple, that tastes like grape right? Of course that's right. I just can't imagine a purple macaroon tasting like grape flavour. You know what those pink ones probably taste like? ROSES. It's true, they make rose macaroons. The yellow is probably daffodil and the green is leaf.


I don't know about these things. I'm not going to google them to see what they actually are. I prefer for them to remain mysterious. They look too unnatural. Like clear Pepsi. Or 6:00 a.m. Or this saiga antelope:

Anyways, I know I can just look up what a macaroon actually is, but I prefer to remain ignorant. This lil' antelope guy on the other hand.... I need to learn about him. Is that a football in his nose? Is he as old as the number of rings on his horns? What kind of horns are those? I NEED TO KNOW. Macaroons... meh.

  4. Haha! I finally became brave enough to eat a macaroon last week. I would love to see a picture of that saiga eating one too! I think he would enjoy one of the leaf-flavored ones.

  9. Very funny post! I think the macaroons look beautiful but you are right, not sure I would want to eat a purple one!
    I once made a pirate ship birthday cake for my son, complete with black icing. Couldn't eat the icing...

  15. Definition of Macaroon: Over-photographed french sandwich that can only be seen through-the-view-finder. Cupcakes were so last season!

  16. haha, i love this! and let me tell you, they are delicious!!!!! meringue and different flavours (rose, pistachio, lemon etc.)
    they are spelled 'macaron' and the macaroon is a little mound of coconut and chocolate (i believe) just like the chocolate rosebuds!! (but i'm not googling that....)

  17. I'm not even going to say what I think the pink ones look like! Anyway, thanks Kate (above), that mound of coconut with a chocolate bottom is what I was taught to believe a macaroon was. My upbringing may be questionable.
