Laduree macarons

If I buy a box of macarons, how long will they keep in good condition? Thinking of bringing one home as a gift.

When I asked this question at the shop they told me three or four days, max.

If they manage to stay intact by the time you get home, then your willpower must be far greater than most.
My immediate answer to your question "how long will they keep in good condition" would be "the couple of hours or at most days it will take you to eat them up."

While Patrick is correct if you do have willpower, cmcfong is correct, they really don't stay fresh to long.

Susan, I'm much relieved. I was wondering why I was suddenly a bat, but I've been called much worse.

Hi v,

I brought home a box of 18 mini macarons from Pierre Herme'.

I kept them in a closed tin and had one per day.

The last was as good as the first.

The best macarons I've ever had wes at Lenôtre on the Champs Elysees between the Arc and the Louvre, right in the middle.

Ira, the metal tin must be the trick. That's good to know. I just kept mine in the box they came in and the last couple were getting a bit stale (I was trying to make them last longer...).

My experience with Paris Macarons was- 2 -3 days TOPS for the "primo"freshness and Macarons taste at their finest.
However, keeping them in a tin would be "the way to go" for a longer life. Of course the Pierre Herme'macaroons would not last past 3 days with me, as I would not be able to stop eating them. What a wonderful shop.

No, my Lady Wife kept the tin of macarons under her pillow.
