Macarons are the latest sweet treats to become trendy in the United States. Macarons are round, colorful, pretty and very tempting to the eye. They are made primarily of almond flour, sugar and egg whites. They are, without a doubt, the most coveted cookie in France–especially Paris. My kids discovered macarons the first time they visited Paris. And since then, they have become my daughter’s favorite cookie to eat and to serve to all of her friends for all occasions.
Olivia Macaron is the newest macaron boutique to hit the DC market. My best gal pal Ashley from Life by Ashley Joy invited me to sample the macarons from Olivia and I was thrilled at the opportunity to sample these beautiful, fluffy cookies, share them with my kids Ella and Logan and to review them for you.
Olivia offers 14 different flavors including: blood orange, cassis, chocolate, coconut, salted caramel (my personal favorite), coffee, eggnog, gingerbread, pink peppercorn, pistachio, raspberry, rose, red velvet and vanilla. Olivia macarons are light, soft and delicate with high quality, rich and flavorful ingredients that are fresh and consistent with the standard found in Europe. The packaging for the macarons is pretty as well, complete with a beautiful box, your choice of satiny ribbons and even gift tags. If you are looking for macarons that are airy and crisp, colorful and delicious–Olivia Macaron in Georgetown is worth a trip or two or three or more!
