In most bakeries you’ll find these petite, sweet, bright and colorful treats, but have you ever tried one? Macarons (pronounced: mah-kah-ROHN) are meringue-based cookies sandwiched around delicious ganache, buttercream or fruit jam. They are not overly sweet, but just sweet enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. You can find these little round desserts in your local Publix bakery. The colors and flavors rotate, so you can always try something new!

Macarons are thought to have been created in Italy as a single cookie. When macarons came over to France, they upgraded the single cookie to the sandwiched dessert we know and love today. This sweet treat became so popular that it’s now enjoyed across the globe.

They are a perfect addition to any occasion, whether you’re attending a cookie exchange, wedding event or holiday gathering. Find the flavors for each season below:

  • Purple – Gingerbread
  • Green – Pistachio
  • Red – Red Velvet
  • White – Peppermint Hot Chocolate with Candy Cane
  • Blue – Caramel Toffee
  • Pink – Strawberry
  • Yellow – Lemon



Next time you’re in the Publix bakery, pick up a macaron! Which one will you try first? Share your favorites in the comments below.

    OMG, I LOOOVE the macarons! My favorites are the strawberry, red velvet, caramel toffee, and the cherry blossom. Don’t care for the cinnamon roll or apple pie, myself, but I’m obsessed with the others, unfortunately. lol. What will the flavors be for Nov and Dec?

    I was unimpressed to say the least. 2 bucks a cookie and they tasted just like overly sweet speckled, candy Easter eggs. They look pretty, but that’s it. Take a big spoon of sugar, and drop in dye and extract. If you like that, you’ll love this. I usually love Publix stuff. Not this time.
