Laduree in Luxembourg

For those who adore French pastries, especially the French macarons (not macaroons made with coconuts), you have probably heard of Laduree.  Laduree is known to be the inventor of the double decker macaron that looks somewhat like a little colorful sandwich.  Thousands of these little macarons are sold each day.

Since Paris was about 8 hours drive and the Luxembourg was only 2 hours drive from where I live, I decided to visit this lovely store in Luxembourg.

Laduree is quite known as a luxury pastry brand.  Each macaron are quite pricey around 2 euros each.  But they are worth it on each bite, and when you purchase a set it comes in their beautiful Laduree macaron boxes.

For what its worth, I am a macaron fanatic.  I have tried over 25+ different brands of macarons around the world, and sometimes I feel like a snob because I always end up not liking the other macarons not unless they’re Laduree.  I just sincerely think so far, nothing can beat Laduree yet.  But I am still on the quest trying out different macarons around the world – France, USA, South Korea, Belgium, Philippines, etc.  Maybe one day, I might find a macaron that is up to par.

Well, I couldn’t leave this store without buying, so I got the 16 pieces with the classic round light green box.  And they give you a selection of ribbons to choose from, so I got the gold one which makes it quite luxurious.  It cost about $42 for the 16 pieces.  The little Laduree booklet said that these macarons must be consumed 3-4 days after purchase.  And of course, I ate them all myself within those days (well I shared a few too).

Have you tried Laduree Macarons?
