With the winter months upon us there’s only two ways New Yorkers go about surviving the cold.

Option 1: Wear good boots, bundle up, and walk flat-footed on icey sidewalks. Short steps and balance are your friends. Think penguin.
Option 2: Grab your favorite blanket, order in, and catch up on your favorite shows. AKA hibernation mode.

Still stuck? Check out our Top 5 Pub Grub Joints. From classics like sliders and wings to local favorite like fried cheese curds, these bars deliver a little piece of Americana. You’ll be munching in no time.

6 Sweet Macaron Fun Facts

Posted by on October 29, 2014
Fun Facts / No Comments

We’re obsessed with macarons. Heck, who isn’t? From rose water to pistachio, the sinful confections come in limitless flavor options. And if you’re as passionate about these French meringue-based cookies as we are, you’ll love our Sweet Macaron Fun Facts:

#1: The correct pronunciation is macaron (mah-kah-ROHN.) It’s not unusual for people to mistakenly call them macaroons (mah-kah-ROON.)
macarons v macaroons

#2: The original macarons didn’t contain filling. They were extremely simple cookies made of almond powder, sugar and egg whites.
Macaron Shells

#3: The first macaron cookie was made in Italy, introduced by the chef of Catherine de Medicis in 1533. Not France, as many people believe.

#4: In the 20th century Pierre Desfontaines had the idea to fill them with creamy ganache and sandwich them. Soon macarons became the most popular cookies in France.

#5: March 20th marks NYC’s Macaron Day. Bakeries across the city indulge passersby with free macaron treats to celebrate the sweet confection.
Macaron Day

#6: The average macaron has 70-100 calories. In comparison, the average muffin is 400 calories. That means you can afford to splurge on a few.

Get them delivered in Union Square, U.W.S, Boston, and LA. Don’t forget to tell us about your favorite macarons and be sure to follow us on Twitter (@deliverydotcom) and Facebook (/deliverydotcom)!
