Does this mean our collective lust for macarons is getting worse? I think so.
Essence Bakery is unveiling a new flavor at the end of the week, and no, they're not just gonna give it up like that. Those teases!
Instead, they want us sugar fiends to guess what it is. Just become a fan of the biz on Facebook, and write your guess on the page. If you name the correct flavor, you will be entered in a drawing for a free box of six macarons.
Considering what luxurious little treats these are, that's worth the effort. Half a dozen macarons is considered a form of currency in my world.
Couldn't you see yourself popping one in your mouth right now?
