Why are macarons so expensive to buy?

Macaron Ingredients Are Expensive

Unlike most bakery treats, macarons are not made with all-purpose wheat flour, which even a home cook can pick up at the supermarket for less than 50 cents a pound. Instead, they’re made with almond flour, which costs more than nine times as much—and that’s at Costco.

How long do macarons last?

Macarons last for 7 days at ambient temperature and for up to 7 weeks in the fridge, so they do have quite a good shelf life.

However, when storing them at ambient temperature, it is probably best to keep them in an airtight plastic container, to keep as much air out as possible so that they don’t dry out.

Are macarons healthy?

Macarons can help you stay within your recommended daily calorie intake if they’re eaten in moderation.

A single macaron may contain less than 90 calories, and snacking on only a couple of these treats at a time shouldn’t add to your waistline.
