Is there any flavor that’s more synonymous with Valentine’s Day than chocolate?
Of course not!
Chocolate’s creamy, rich and indulgent texture makes it the top choice in our lineup for must have macaron flavors.

Besides, they’re sweet and delicious – who wouldn’t want a big bowl of fresh strawberries or, even better, a fresh batch of homemade strawberry macarons on Valentine’s Day?
