Macarons represent an industry that is ripe for disruption by a cutting-edge brand that can use this much-loved dessert and build an entire range of unique desserts around it. This is exactly what we are doing as we capitalize on the opportunity and, yet again, emerge as category creators. We’re launching a wide range of flavours, a range of eggless Macarons, custom printed Macarons, and Macaron cakes, chocolates, and cupcakes. We believe in delivering the best, most unique experiences to our customers, and this new launch is just another step underlining this promise.”
