These Trader Joe’s Macarons are one of my favorite desserts at TJ’s. Leave them on the counter for 30 minutes or so, and then dig in. It’s physically impossible to eat just one of these. I have tried, and it’s not possible. These macarons are incredibly rich, dense and somehow light at the same time. The crispy but chewy cookie. The sweet but nuanced flavors in the different fillings. I’m honestly not even sure which flavor is which in the container, because I don’t usually pause to look. They all taste delicious, and if you don’t like these, maybe you just don’t like France. Or Paris. Or patisseries…….…….
- Made using old French patisserie recipe
- Net Weight: 4.2 oz
- Comes in a 12 pack, with 6 flavors: Coconut, Fig, Apricot, Salted Caramel, Pistachio, and Lemon
Trader Joe’s French Macarons
Because these are made for Trader Joe’s they of course don’t have any artificial colors in them. The macarons themselves are gorgeous, multi-colored, and look like a mini bakery display case. What is everyone’s favorite flavor of these Trader Joe’s macarons? I honestly am not sure I like one more than the other, but if forced to choose I’d probably say the green ones. I think those are pistachio. Not being French, I don’t know what I’m supposed to drink with these. An espresso or a tea? Maybe a glass of wine? I don’t think it really matters what you eat or drink with these, because they taste incredible, and are priced fairly at under $5. These remind me of the Aldi Macarons, with nearly identical packaging and taste, so I’d imagine they may be made by the same bakery for both groceries that are owned by the same parent company!

Don’t even get me started on these. I had to stop buying them because as soon as I opened them, all 12 would be gone. The Pistachio & Salted Caramel are the best by far! It’s a great price too……ony $5! They’re just not good when you’re trying to get into your summertime bathing suit =)
Yes I’m eating both flavors now love them and coconut too
The macarons pleasantly surprised me in every dimension: taste, texture, color, shape, and price. I found a strong reason for going back to Trader Joe’s.
