|Our taster macarons.|
So last night we tried Pistachio, Orange Blossom and Black Forest, in that order (turned out to be a reasonably good idea!).
Mum - didn't even try it, she wasn't up for macarons, and was happy we were trying the pistachio one because she did not want to...so that most probably a thumbs down.
Dad - didn't think it worked, pistachio flavour with sweet shell, no.
Me - agreed with my dad, I like the saltiness of pistachios, so if you take that away and replace it with sugar...yuck!
Sis - LOVED it, she finished our pieces off.
Verdict: All down to your personal taste.
Mum - after we all tried it she was intrigued, she decided it tasted like Savlon.
Dad - he tried his piece first, made an intrigued noise, and let us try it before telling us his thoughts. He then shared that it tasted like washing up liquid.
Me - "It tastes like bathroom", YUCK!
Sis - yuck.
Verdict: One for people you don't like. DO NOT BUY OTHERWISE!
Edit: I have discovered something similar tasting here in Australia that people seem to really enjoy eating: Musk sticks. So basically, if you like Musk flavoured things, you will probably like Orange Blossom too.
Mum - "Not one I'd buy."
Dad - thinks there was too much cherry, but otherwise it was yum. He decided with us that there was too much alcohol in the cherry.
Me - OMG, it smelt good! But yuck the cherry. I don't like Black Forest cakes anyway, so I knew I'd probably not like it, but man those cherries were strong.
Sis - Also not a fan of Black Forest cakes, thus also did not like it.
Verdict: If you like chocolate macarons, Black Forest cake and cherries soaked in alcohol then buy this, you'll love it, otherwise maybe not.
More to try tonight! :) But so far, I think we are all happy with not being adventurous at the moment.
