How Many Flavors of Macarons Are There?

That’s just a small sampling of some of the wildly different macaron flavors available.


Drumroll, Please. Here Are The Top 5 Macaron Flavors You Have To Try

Now that we’ve got you salivating a little, here are the best macaron flavors we suggest you try. These delightful macaron flavors were chosen because they fit for any occasion. Ready. Set. Go…


Sicilian Pistachio

It’s the Sicilian Pistachio, which only grows in two places in the world – Iran and Sicily, that makes this macaron flavor so perfectly delicious. The Sicilian Pistachio is a smaller, richer, intensely flavorful pistachio with a buttery texture that makes this a perfect savory-sweet combination. 

Colombian Coffee

Enjoy this rich, coffee-flavored macaron any day. It’s perfect for sitting on the porch in the morning, during the mid-afternoon office break, or as an after-dinner treat. As a bonus, this coffee macaron flavor won’t stain your teeth or give you the jitters!

Strawberry-Key Lime

This bright and colorful macaron is fun to look at, and it’s one of our favorite deliciously tart macaron flavors. This exciting combination of sweet and citrus fruit flavors will baste your taste buds with a satisfying zing.

Salted Caramel

There’s just something about the combination of salt and caramel that makes this a must-have macaron flavor. While this macaron flavor is nothing particularly special or unique, it’s a timeless combination that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.

Red Velvet

Did you know that Red Velvet cake is made from cocoa? That’s right… at its heart, it’s practically chocolate! The red color is purportedly created by a chemical reaction between the cocoa and other acids in the batter mixture. Who knew? Science lesson aside, this is one of our favorite macaron flavors and requires no special occasion to be enjoyed.
