Costco Sells Heart-Shaped Macarons For Valentine's Day, and We'll Take 20 Boxes, Please
Valentine's Day used to be pretty simple. Candy hearts, flowers, and a romantic dinner for two, right? Well, while that's still fine and dandy, we're pretty partial to the holiday's more recent trends, such as Oreo bouquets, cherry-flavored mochas, heart-shaped ravioli, and, yes, heart-shaped macarons.
Costco is offering what may be one of the greatest Valentine's Day deals ever: a box of 25 macarons by Le Chic Patissier for only $12. These heart-shaped treats come in two different flavors, strawberry-vanilla and raspberry, and look as good as they taste. With big-name baking companies such as Ladurée and Baked by Melissa selling the same amount of these delicacies for upward of $65, the Costco alternative is a total steal (not to mention totally adorable!). These macarons are perfect because they're a great Valentine's Day gift, for either a crush or office colleagues, that will not break the bank.
However, there may be a catch. Apparently, these gems may only be available for a limited time at Costco stores in Los Angeles and the Bay Area in California, so be sure to call your local store for price and availability before heading out.
