Though these might not be the single best flavor from Ladurée (that award goes to pistachio or vanilla), the new Strawberry Guimauve macarons stands in a category of its own. It's part of Ladurée's "Incroyable" collection featuring summer pink macaron shells sprinkled with a bit of sugar for shine. Bite in and wait: that's not buttercream or even ganache. It's marshmallow! The smooth, borderline silky marshmallow is scented with strawberry, a carefree, unorthodox macaron that demands a cool glass of rosé.
