m-a-c-a-r-o-n. that’s it.

I know, I know. You’re probably thinking why did I spell it out like that, huh? Well, last week or so I posted pictures of my first time trying a macaron from The Sweet Lobby to my Instagram, but because of space and time I didn’t explain my “aha moments” that preceded my first bite.  So, here’s the back story.

One of my favorite fashion bloggers is Song of Style who posts a lot of macarons on her Instagram.  The arrangement of assorted colorful macarons on her page were soooo attractive to me, I had to inquire more about this fancy Oreo.    Well, actually, I was confused about the spelling and its pronunciation more.  If this is a macaron, what is the coconut chocolate cookie thing??  To confuse me more, when you search for a macaron, you will also see it spelled macaroon, and even the images are inconsistent. I’m like WHICH ONE IS IT??!?!?!?!?!?!?!? They look different with two different spellings AND pronunciations I thought.  Oh, I was gonna find out for myself. Can’t be walking’ around sounding clueless if I’m to become an expert foodie 🙂 And so I did. After a few office debates and web searches later – I got it.

Ladies and Gentlemen, let’s settle this once and for all shall we?

I was hell-bent on finding a bakery that sold m-a-c-a-r-o-n-s.  A friend of mines spoke very highly of The Sweet Lobby and after ordering a custom dozen for my birthday, and swooning over each delicious and perfect one, I knew I had to try my first macaron from their too.

And so I did.

Last week.

One word:

#picstitch of The Sweet Lobby’s Classic Box. Six macarons of your choice. Pictured here from       L to R: The Red Hot Chili Chocolate, Chocolate, Vanilla, Green Tea, Lavender Vanilla and Raspberry.

I did, I ate all six. Not in one day though.  Don’t judge me.  I highly recommend checking out The Sweet Lobby in Eastern Market (DC).  You will NOT be sorry.  Their selection of macarons is impressive, and their cupcakes are too. Yum!

PS – Don’t let your spell checker or dumb auto correct change the spelling either.  They are not the same.

Hi! My name is Cheryl but my friends call me Bloom. I'm a true, old soul millennial who decided to start a blog about becoming an adult, a woman, foodie and dating. I love self help books, oldies and talking to people about life. I like to laugh and tell jokes. I like to buy "sh!t" as my dad says that I usually don't need but what girl doesn't?! Thanks for stopping by. Come back any time.
