I haven't tried them, but these are def for people who aren't used to high end macarons. Macarons should be eaten within like 3 days of being made, and i never trust this packaged kind. I'll keep my $26/dozen Laduree ones

For the price, they are pretty good. I've bought them two times.

These are sold in the refrigerated section. Much more fresh and tasty than frozen ones I've had before.

Yes, the high-end ones are better but not five-times-the-price better. These ones you can eat to your heart's content without breaking the bank. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Thanks for posting OP.

BUT as someone who only eats macarons as an occasional treat, i'll stick with the fresh ones from my local bakery.

I'm not sure any good macaron can last 3 days in my care

I recall reading articles explaining that Ladurées's macaron are also frozen. But they still can be tastier than others anyway ;)

I think you should try it before you judge this isn't worthy [of your $0.50]. I'm pretty sure you'd be very very surprised. Actually even better to "blind taste test them" - have someone give them to you without telling you which is a Costco macaron vs a Laduree one.

Spending 2 for $4 is pretty extravagant. The Costco ones are pretty darn good for 2 for $1.

These had an awful consistency and they tasted the same.

Not a big fan to begin with. I’d rather buy a decent cake at Costco for $15. Something with flavour..

Actual fresh high end macarons are like $3-4 each.

So these are actually good priced for what they are. Obviously not as good but value is there.

For people who haven't had the real fresh expensive ones, these Costco ones are more than enough to impress them.

Enough with snobbery. These are actually pretty good - I've had them a few times. They are obviously not going to be as the freshly made one, but i've had some from bakeries that were stale and much more expensive, so I'd rather pay less and enjoy more.

I have had fresh made ones and these ones, they are almost the exact same, I buy them when they are $20 at Costco, at $15 I am going to gain weight now, thanks OP lol

Your comment is like "I am used to driving a $100k Porsche, so a $15k deal on a Civic is crap."

I am used to having the "high end" ones, we go to Paris once every other year casually and enjoy visiting stores like Ladurée and Pierre Hermé. At the same time, you are only going to be getting 4 Macarons for $15CAD. Part of that price tag is also to enjoy the atmosphere that you are having the macarons at, with a sip of tea around a nice setting. Do I think they are 5 times better? Maybe not if I were just buying them and take them home like what you would do here. Maybe three times as good at best. My wife is also a baker so we do have an appreciation of a good macaron.

It's all about managing the expectations. At $15, it definitely tastes decent and will fully satisfy the crave without breaking the bank. I would totally grab one of these if I were craving for macarons.

I think it costs way more than that at Laduree. One piece is $3.30 if I recall. At $26/dozen I would be having them more often. Macarons are so good but so pricey.

I had some in Marsielle and Barcelona last year, but will give these a try.
