News, Trends

McDonald’s is at it again and this time instead of the McItaly, they’ve decided to go French with the macaron. The little French meringue sandwich type cookie has gotten so much good press that McDonald’s McCafes in France are now serving macarons.

Julie Jargon and Christina Passariello cover this strange phenomenon for The Wall Street Journal, where they hear many people who are flabbergasted by the pastry showing up in places like Starbucks and McDonald’s and aren’t too happy about it either.

One person, Clémence Trancart, said that a macaron “is very refined and elegant. That’s why I wouldn’t go to McDo for it,” she said, using the French nickname for McDonald’s. “It’s the little French treat.”

Another said “It’s the trend” and then said the McDonald’s version compares to other mainstream markets and bakeries.

What would you do if a McDonald’s near you decided to carry macarons? Would you order them or would you rather go to a more conventional place to buy them? Order them from France? How about just making your own at home?
