My Thoughts

Manischewitz Macaroons are a delicious treat that people of all ages can enjoy. I got to try out the Chocolate and the Carrot Cake varieties, and they were both delicious. The chocolate is rich and decadent, and the carrot tastes just like the cake, but with the addition of coconut. Each one is a tasty  morsel that goes great with a cup of coffee. 

Kids can enjoy the macaroons as well, and as more than simply a tasty after dinner snack. This is one time when you can encourage your kids to play with your food. As part of the Manimacs contest, my daughter decided to try her artistic abilities. We used the chocolate macaroons and some trail mix to make an edible version of our cat. Hey, its not bad for a five-year-old!
