Ever since I tried my first French macaron, I've been seeing them everywhere. I tried the ones at the Tastemaker's event and then someone brought some to a baby shower I attended recently. A woman there couldn't stop raving about them and seemed to think they would be the next big sweet, soon to be in stores and bakeries across the country just like the cupcake. She wasn't far off the mark, as reported by NPR. I did a little more Internet digging and found that Wall Street Journal also reported on the macaron's surge in popularity. McCafés in France are serving them and there was a limited run of them at Starbucks. Most of my friends are still confused by the name, as they are more familiar with the coconut version, which is spelled macaroon. Tell me what you think: Have you tried them and, if so, do you think they'll be the next big thing in sweets?
