You're probably familiar with chocolate flavoured macarons, but how about macron flavoured chocolates? Demarquette's limited edition Macachocs
are a fusion of a caramel truffle and a macaron. At first it sounds a bit gimmicky, like the current cronut fad, and perhaps their limited edition status goes some way to proving that. After all, out of the three flavours, I found two of them pretty unremarkable. The salted caramel was very subtle, and nowhere close to the standard of a full bodied caramel. Then there was the banoffee, which in all honesty, until I read the label afterwards, I had no idea what it was. I definitely couldn't taste the banana. The third machachoc, however, was exceptional. I will admit that I thought it was raspberry, when it was actually strawberry, but the fruitiness shone through. The £8 consisted of six macachocs, and I wish all of them had been strawberry.
Overall the flavours may have been forgettable, but the texture on the other hand, was superb. It was the perfect balance of crisp a crispy shell, and slightly chewy middle, which was made ever so much softer by the caramel sticking the two pieces together. There was an almost cloud like quality to them.
While I don't think macachocs are out of this world, they are by no means a failure, and worth trying at least once. But in the end, I think I would just prefer a chocolate flavoured macaron.
