I had to do a loop of the whole Food and Fashion Handmade markets despite being there for one purpose. At first it seemed like the same set of stalls- jams, chocolate, cupcakes and more cupcakes, but then a new macaron stall caught my eye. Lu’mon macarons had a nice simple clean set up but what made me smirk and come back and get something even though I was running crazily late for my lunch date was there unique flavours.
They had a variety of flavours but I was going to skip out on the ‘boring’ flavours and just grab those which were unique to this store and of course a salted butter caramel as a measuring stick.
Macarons honeycomb, iced vovo, salted butter caramel, snickers, red skins and bubblegum (not shown) 6 for $15.00.
Snickers: EXACTLY like the chocolate bar, you wouldn’t even have to tell me what the flavour was.
Honeycomb: this had a honeycomb centre which was a pleasant surprise.
Salted butter caramel: Not THE best but definitely up there.
Red skins: wow, I was amazed how this flavour to be so dead on but have such a different texture to the candy.
Bubblegum: more for Timmy than me but I could appreciate the taste and the likeness.
Iced vovo: since all the other flavours were so great, I was looking foward to this one the most and left it til last. Sadly the raspberry component tasted medicinal and it was the worst flavour out of the 6.
Wonderful textures and flavours, does anyone know where I can find these macarons outside of random market days?Thanks for the heads up Learnian! Ill check them out :D
Five people have been hospitalised and more than 20 are still sick as investigations continue into a spate of food poisonings at a newly opened Dickson restaurant.

Although we were heading to our dessert destination, I couldn’t help but stop by an ice-cream place that I was told about earlier that day. Lic Gelato has been opened since the beginning of the year (how have I not heard about them sooner?!) and share their location with Braddon Crust pizzas. They make all their gelatos on the premises and my eyes lit up when I saw just how many flavours they had. I managed to convince myself, ‘just a small something for the walk to our next restaurant reservation’ and with that we went on a taste testing rampage.
The woman was very friendly and generous and we had up to 7 taste testers before we decided on an actual flavour: salted caramel; French vanilla burnt caramel; rockmelon; watermelon; Lindor chocolate and cookies and cream. Salted caramel won our hearts although it was getting harder to decide with every new flavour we tried. 1 scoop in a small cup was $4.00 and Timmy had to tell the lady to stop filling the already overflowing cup, which has never happened before!
It is a brilliant little establishment with friendly generous staff opened from 7am - 10pm 7days. Go check them out!
