Detailed Review of Costco Tipiak French Macarons
If you’re a macaron lover or want to try macarons for the first time, you might wonder if the box of Costco Tipiak French Macarons is a good buy.
Here are my thoughts (plus some essential info – like where to find these tasty goodies!).
Location in Costco Store
The Costco Tipiak French Macarons were kind of in a random spot (in my opinion). They were right outside the refrigerated dairy section, surrounded by breakfast foods like burritos and quiche.
The item number for Costco Tipiak French Macarons is 1246036.
The price of the Costco Tipiak French Macarons is $14.99.
This is a pretty good price, especially considering how you get 36 macarons.
Would I have been happier to spend closer to $12.99? Sure. But I still think the Costco Tipiak French Macarons are worth every penny.
Ease of Use/Store
The Costco Tipiak French Macarons are easy to eat and easy to store.
All you need to do is remove the macarons from the packaging and take off the lid. Then, all that’s left to do is dive into the yummy flavors!
When you’re ready to put them away, simply place the lid back on and store them in the refrigerator.
They only last a few short weeks, so you’ll need to gobble them up fairly quickly. (Which I don’t think you’ll have a problem doing!)
For more extended storage solutions, you can put the Costco Tipiak French Macarons in the freezer. However, the quality may be slightly altered – i.e., the shells may crack more easily, and they might not taste *as* good. (Basically, it’s not my top recommendation, but you can freeze them if absolutely necessary. They will still be enjoyable.)
I literally can’t wait to tell you about the taste of the Costco Tipiak French Macarons!
All in all, these macarons get a six out of ten rating. They are so good, and I love the texture. Each had just the right amount of filling.
Here’s my breakdown of each flavor:
- Salted Caramel – The salted caramel flavor was definitely one of my favorites. It had just the right amount of caramel flavoring without being too bold or overpowering. So yummy.
- Pistachio – This was mine (and Pierce’s) absolute favorite! The pistachio macaron had pleasant notes of pistachio and an overall light and refreshing flavor that was still somehow indulgent. Absolutely perfect. And that’s without mentioning the *stunning* green shade!
- Chocolate Hazelnut – This one was OK. I felt that it needed a bit more hazelnut. However, it was my daughter Makenzie’s favorite one. She loved how chocolaty it was!
- Almond White Chocolate – This flavor was also really good. To me, it tasted like a sugar cookie mixed with an almond cookie. In other words, it was sensational!
- Red Velvet – If you love red velvet cake, you’re going to love the red velvet macaron. It was like a bite-sized piece of everyone’s favorite cake. So scrumptious!
- Creme Brulee – This was the only flavor my kids and I did not care for. It’s probably because I don’t care for creme brulee in general. If you like creme brulee, you’ll likely love this flavor, though.
The Costco Tipiak French Macarons don’t have an overload of ingredients, which is always a good thing.
However, there are quite a few allergens, so be careful! Those with allergies to almond, egg, milk, pistachio, hazelnut, soy, walnut, or coconut should avoid these. (Sorry!)
They are, however, gluten-free!
The calories aren’t too bad with the Costco Tipiak French Macarons. In fact, you can enjoy three for just 170 calories. This also comes with 8 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbs, and 20 grams of sugar.
Healthy? No. But certainly not the worst dessert.
OK, so I am basically obsessed with the Costco Tipiak French Macarons and would recommend them to anyone. The flavors were excellent, and the texture couldn’t have been better. Overall, I give these bite-sized goodies a six out of five rating – that’s how good they are!
