While on a visit to Paris, a must see place to stop is Ladurée to try the famed macaroons. These exquisite little cookies are a scrumptious blend of sweetness with a cookie crispness. I visited the shop on the Champs Elysées. The shop was gorgeous, full of gilded fixtures and twinkling crystal.
If you can't visit there any time soon, an excellent feature of their website is an e-postcard that one can send to a friend. Please visit: http://www.laduree.fr/index_en.htm
