O’Macaron sweets are delicious, captivating


Leaving your hometown is bittersweet.

Luckily, I have one more Out to Lunch column before I go, to end on a sweet note.

Looking back, I’ve had many captivating desserts across Midland – from the various ice cream establishments to bakeries.

Downtown Midland is chock-full of sugary delights, with just a couple located in “Midland’s French Corner” on Townsend Street.

While Crepe Et Amis offers savory and sweet crepes, O’Macaron, located at 128 Townsend St., focuses on treats. Their menu changes every so often to offer seasonal flavors alongside favorite versions.

During my latest visit, their display case featured holiday-themed macarons in addition to hot chocolate bombs.

Instead of visions of sugarplums, I’ve dreamt of those macarons on Christmas Eve.

Macarons may seem little, but they take great care and patience to make. The wafers themselves are meringue-based, with some additional flavoring and food coloring. The filling is a generous layer of buttercream icing. For those poor souls who haven’t had the pleasure of trying a macaron, think of them as Oreos that have gotten an upgrade.
