Chocolate or Vanilla (Blondes) Hail Merry Macaroons

Sometimes I crave sweets. Sometimes I crave Hail Merry. I had a day like that the other day. To satisfy it, I ran over (okay, I really drove) to my local Whole Foods Market and was delighted to find, there in the back of the store in the refrigerator, the mother of all treats.

The Chocolate Macaroon.

Hail Merry Chocolate Macaroons

It’s my usual. They have other great treats too, but I’m a creature of habit and besides, I love my chocolate.

But wait!

I found another macaroon!

They are called Blondes!


Oh, the decisions….

So, I bought both. I had to. I just couldn’t help myself.

Behold, the Blonde

Hail Merry Blondie

At the store I noticed that the chocolate is half the size of the Blonde or that the Blonde is twice as much as the chocolate. For the same price.

Is this a conspiracy against chocolate lovers?

I was disappointed by this since I know I can get the 3.5 oz sized bag of chocolate macaroons at Uptown Grocers in Edmond (Oklahoma) for the same price. Now I’m thinking Whole Foods is out to get me just because of my love for chocolate.

Actually, I really just think Hail Merry decided that they are expensive to make and instead of marking the price up, they reduced the size. This is all speculation of course. You don’t have to like it. I don’t.

But alas, that did not stop my need for chocolate and I got it anyways.

Hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girls gotta do.

For chocolate anyways.

So, then it came down to which one to try first.
