REVIEW: New Seasonal Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches Come to L’Artisan des Glaces at EPCOT

It is no secret that some of the most delectable desserts coming out of the Walt Disney World Resort can be found in the EPCOT World Showcase. As you stroll past the glimmering fountain in the France Pavilion in EPCOT, one can smell the aroma of L’Artisan des Glaces and its iconic macaron ice cream sandwiches. So, let’s step inside and see what new tasty treats are available!

This new seasonal flavor of the macaron ice cream sandwich contains the refreshingly sweet and slightly tart raspberry gelato combined with the intense flavor of vanilla bean. The pairing is great, although the macaron itself is a bit hard to eat and slightly sticky. It also comes in a beautifully wrapped package that mimics the look of a French newspaper.

Overall we would recommend this new special, and at five dollars it is a great way to get a refreshing taste of France on a hot summer day at the Walt Disney World Resort. In addition to these new seasonal flavors, L’Artisan des Glaces has also added a pear gelato special for guests to try.

Want to bring some of these macarons home with you? While they might not make the flight or car ride home, be sure to check out the new additions to the macaron-themed merchandise collection at Souvenirs de France to bring some of the spirit of these delectable treats back to your final destination.
