Macaron is NOT an alternative spelling of Macaroon.
That just changes everything.
The two terms refer to two different things- food, yes. So for those of you who’re thinking of shifting to another article because you just don’t get it, we’ll get down to the basics.
A generic phrase that is used for many sweet confections made of egg whites, sugar and coconut, piped out as a star or mountain and dipped in chocolate.
To add to the confusion, the Macaron, is also called the French Macaroon. Now that’s what we want, a bag of macaroons/ macarons with a side of confusion.
But there you have it, a tale of macarons, macaroons and the French for your next “I know my food” show.
