These Hello Kitty macarons come in a very adorable little box with a transparent bow on top. The inner box with the macarons slides out and is decorated with a kawaii collage. Each box comes with 5 different flavored macarons.
The macarons looked a lot simpler than what I expected. I thought each macaron would have a different design like the Hello Kitty Petit Fours. Unfortunately there were no nutritional, allergy or ingredients list to be found anywhere on the box.
This set cost $15. That means each macaron was $3 each!

This macaron tasted like vanilla bean. The Hello Kitty face looked like it was dyed right on the macaron.
Orange hello kitty macaron
I’m usually not a fan of lemon or citrus desserts but I liked this macaron very much! It tasted like a grapefruit lemon and the filling was like lemon custard. It was a perfect balance of sweet and sour. I couldn’t tell if it was strictly a lemon flavor or an orange flavor. The bow on top seemed to be white chocolate dyed pink!
Green hello kitty macaron
I didn’t get any particular flavor out of this macaron. It could’ve been an almond flavor or maybe a pistachio flavor. I personally couldn’t tell what it could’ve been but it tasted nutty. The bow which tasted like chocolate, I ate it alone instead of with the macaron,

I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of jelly macarons. They’re usually too tart and tangy for me. This one had a strawberry, or maybe raspberry jelly filling; I couldn’t tell which one. It was sweet but with a tart after taste. Since the bow was made out of chocolate, it added a little sweetness.
blue hello kitty macaron
I was expecting a vanilla bean or birthday cake but it turned out only the macaron was dyed blue; there was no particular taste. Surprisingly the filling was chocolate; it was slightly bitter like dark chocolate but it was creamy. Like all the other macarons, the bow I think is made of chocolate.
Would I buy again? Maybe.
The macarons were decently sized for the price and they were pretty tasty. However, I don’t think I would buy these again because I can go to a bakery that sells macarons and buy whatever flavors I want for a cheaper price. My favorites were the vanilla flavored macaron and the green nutty flavored one!
