The rise of the macarons

It seems like whatever I eat or do in Singapore follows me back home to Malaysia. 
One of the food that followed me back was macarons.

A lot of people get the spelling wrong.

It is spelled with only ONE 'o.'
Macaroon, spelt with two 'o' s are entirely different from the colourful macarons we have been consuming.

Images are from Google.

Macaroon (double O)
Macaron (single O)

"The two terms refer to distinctly different things. Both macarons and macaroons are confections, and both names are derived from ammaccare, which is Italian for "to crush" — but that's where the similarities end."

You can read more in the following links: 

Or you can just Google macarons and macaroons to find out more.


  1. Oh interesting, now I get the right spelling for macaron! :D

  2. That's another person to differenciate between macaroon and macaron! :D Glad it helps.


We appreciate the time you took to read our post and drop a comment or two :) Many thanks! We solemnly swear we ate everything on our plate, unless it is inedible :P or it tasted so bad no one can go through chewing and swallowing it anymore.
