Gigi Gaerlan Custaroons: Custard and Macaroons in One

Last Christmas, Kurt brought me a box of Gigi Gaerlan Custaroons.   He told me that Gigi Gaerlan Custaroons is famous online store well known for their custaroons so he wanted me to taste it.  I'm not really familiar with what custaroons are so I was excited to try it out.  Based on the name, I guess it means custard and macaroons in one.  The box was really beautiful with its sophisticated prints.  I love the baby blue color.

He told me that the box contained 30 bite sized custaroons: 15 original and 15 cheese.

There were two layers so I assumed the Original Custaroons was on one layer and the  Cheese Custaroons  was on the other.  But, upon tasting some, I realized that it was actually mixed randomly.   The darker ones are the Cheese Custaroons.  While, the lighter ones are the Original Custaroons.  Funny because with macaroons, I have a habit of eating the darker-shaded macaroons because it's baked longer than the lighter ones so the initial ones I ate were all Cheese Custaroons. =p

Upon first bite, I loved the texture of the Custaroons.  It was soft, smooth and chewy.   I thought the idea was brilliant.  I've always liked the smoothness of a custard and the fun in chewing macaroons.  I'm glad Gigi Gaerlan thought of creating the best of worlds.  I hope they have a less sugar option for these because I really like chewing and munching on them but can't tolerate too much of the sweetness.  Although both flavors are delicious, I prefer the Original Custaroons over the Cheese Custaroons because it gives a lighter feel.  


Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Gigi Gaerlan Custaroons is simply one of a kind since its custard and macaroons in one.  It's a must try!  Because of its appealing packaging, it can be the perfect as a gift to your loved ones or something that you can bring over at a party. Because of its packaging and rich taste, the price is pretty good.
