Today we tried Le Bon Macaron in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We have been meaning to try this place for years, but every time we go by it’s late after dinner and the doors are closed. Today we made it by during the afternoon, and grabbed a few macarons to try.
A pastry with personality.
They had so many flavors! I personally am one to go for the standard flavors – chocolate and vanilla are my favorites. However, if you’re one that likes to branch out and try the “sour gummy,” “lemon ginger,” or “mirabelle,” then this place is for you.
They have a signature collection, fruit & floral collection, chocolate collection, autumn collection, holiday collection, and celebration collection.
We decided on three flavors: the Marie Antoinette Cake Batter, S’mores, and Red Velvet macarons.
Marie Antoinette Cake Batter — I love the name! The blue hue and sprinkles on the cookie make me smile (teal is my favorite color, of course). It’s one of their best sellers. The consistency was good. The flavor was very good. However, it was very sweet and had a lot of filling. It could have done with a little less sugar, and a little less filling. But overall, this was a very good macaron.
S’mores — Also one of their best sellers. Good flavor and consistency. The flavor was subtle, but delightful. Just the right amount of filling. This was a good macaron!
Red Velvet — Good consistency, but where’s the flavor?! I kept waiting for some, but alas none arrived. I will have to try and find some again next time. Le sigh…
Overall, I rate Le Bon Macaron as…
GOOD – I’D HAVE ANOTHER!
