These delectable desserts are a far cry from the fascinating eats around the world.  Here are a handful (and you shouldn’t eat more than a handful!) of delectable delights that you surely don’t want to miss!

Macarons

Laduree in France claims to be the home of the macaron, a delicious and fluffy treat.  Not to be confused with the macaroon (a coconut pastry), the macaron is a meringue-based confection commonly filled with a ganache or buttercream.
