Aldi Specially Selected Macaron Cookies

Aldi’s Specially Selected Macarons are a sweet treat for every occasion!

Aldi Macarons

Macarons are generally considered a high end specialty item that you only really find in fancy bakeries. So it may surprise you to find out that Aldi carries macarons almost year round.

They do rotate varieties or sell special flavors at different times of the year but they are available the majority of the time I stop in my local Aldi.

You will typically find these fancy treats in the freezer section with the other desserts near the ice cream.

Specially Selected Macrons

Aldi is known for its high-quality, affordable products, and its Specially Selected line of products is no exception. The Specially Selected macarons, in particular, are a delicious treat that is sure to impress any guests.

These macarons, some of which are made in France, are light and delicate, with a crisp outer shell and a creamy, chewy interior.

They come in a variety of flavors, including salted caramel, lemon, vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, and raspberry, depending on the package you buy.

Aldi’s macarons are carefully packaged to ensure that they arrive at the store in perfect condition. I have always been impressed with the quality, especially for being a relatively cheap, frozen dessert.

One of the standout features of these macarons is their affordability, these macarons are a fraction of the price of macarons from high-end bakeries and specialty stores.

Despite their low price, these macarons are made with high-quality ingredients and have a rich, authentic flavor that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth.

These macarons are a convenient and hassle-free treat. They are ready to eat straight from the package, so there’s no need to fuss with mixing, baking, or decorating.

I do recommend thawing before eating if they are frozen but that doesn’t take too long. They are also an ideal snack to pack for a picnic, a road trip, or an afternoon at the office.

Overall, the Specially Selected macarons from Aldi are a tasty and affordable treat that is sure to delight. Whether you are a macaron enthusiast or are simply looking for a delicious and indulgent snack, these macarons are a must-try.

What Are Macarons?

A macaron is a small, round pastry made from almond flour (ground almonds), sugar, and egg whites. It typically consists of two cookie-like shells with a flavored filling, such as ganache, buttercream, or jam. Macarons are often brightly colored and can come in a variety of flavors. They originated in Italy, were later popularized in France, and are now popular in many countries around the world. Macarons are known for their delicate texture and rich, sweet flavor. They are often served as a dessert or as part of a special occasion such as a wedding or holiday.

Does Aldi Sell Macarons?

Yes, Aldi carries Specially Selected Macarons year round along with some additional flavors and packages as limited time Aldi Finds.

How To Serve Aldi’s Macarons?

If you purchase frozen macarons allow them to thaw at room temp for 30-60 minutes prior to serving. If you want to up the wow factor when serving remove them from the packaging and place on a dessert tower, a macaron tower, or arranged on a clean white plate to let the colors pop.

What To Drink With Macarons?

Sweet Macarons go great with tea or a cup of coffee but you could also serve them with wine. A sparkling wine like champagne or prosecco would be great or a white wine like Moscato, pinot grigio, or sauvignon blanc would be great as well.

These are one of my favorite dessert items from Aldi. I keep a box or two in the freezer and pull them out if people are coming over or we want an easy dessert.
