Ft. Myers Food Critic Won't Share Our Macarons!

Sometimes the best stories are also the shortest. That certainly is the case with food critic Jean Le Boeuf, who writes for the News-Press division of the USA Today Network. In three short tweets, Le Boeuf relates a witty tale of the eventual fate of an assorted box of Le Macaron’s signature French pastries. Here, in its entirety, is Le Boeuf’s vignette of noble intentions gone awry.

“The box of macarons sat on my desk for a good 10 minutes. I'd bought eight of them from Le Macaron in downtown Fort Myers. They were for a friend. But eight is such a weird number. Six seems friendlier. Coffee and pistachio were the first to go. Raspberry, fluffy and jammy-crisp, went next. Because five is fine. But then salted caramel called me, and coconut and rose and white-chocolate basil. My friend got a card.”

As much as we’d have loved for Jean Le Boeuf’s friend to receive the deliciously decadent box of macarons from our downtown Ft. Meyers location, we completely understand the author’s dilemma. It is, after all, nearly impossible to stop at just one crisp, sweet, perfectly elegant macaron, especially with the veritable rainbow of flavors beckoning you from the chic packaging. It’s like our signature saying goes- “First bite is a surprise. Second bite is the flavor. Third bite is the pleasure!” We don’t fault you, Mr. Le Boeuf, for being unable to resist eating the whole gift box of macarons and leaving your friend with a card! 

Jean Le Boeuf is just one of many fans of our delightful, authentic French macarons, and the number is growing! As we award Le Macaron franchise opportunities to owners across the country, our fan base expands, and our macarons, French gelato, and other assorted French pastries become a favorite palate-pleaser in even more cities across America!
