Dana’s Bakery

Dana’s Bakery

Launched in a small New Jersey kitchen in 2012, Dana’s Bakery quickly became recognized for its delectable and creative macarons. It has since been named one of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America by Inc. in 2018 and 2019.

In addition to macarons, Dana's Bakery sells cookies and their trademarked Mookies—a macaron stuffed in a cookie. All baked goods are gluten-free and made with almond flour; while most macarons and cookies contain dairy, vegan options are available. Dana’s Bakery is also a certified Kosher Dairy under KOF-K (a certificate is available on the website).

Macaron selections include 14 original flavors and a flavor of the month like Birthday Cake, Fruity Cereal, S’Mores, Boston Cream, Cosmopolitan, Champagne Celebration, and many more. Have an idea for a flavor you don’t see? Contact Dana’s to create a custom flavor for a special order. Not only are these macarons delicious, but their visual appeal is both whimsical and elegant.

Macarons are sold in boxes of single flavors (around $33 to $36) or variety packs (about $33 each). You can also purchase gift boxes that are for special occasions (i.e. bridal-themed or welcoming a new baby). Dana’s Bakery offers second-day and overnight nationwide shipping via UPS to ensure that the macarons arrive as fresh as possible to your doorstep. Local delivery is available in New York City, while in-store pickup is an option in New Jersey.

For those who want macarons delivered monthly, join the Macaron of the Month Club to receive a variety pack of macarons every month. Choose from a month-to-month subscription (around $51), a three-month subscription (about $153), a six-month package (roughly $306), and a 12-month bundle (approximately $612).

Most Iconic: Ladurée

Ladurée

Ladurée

The Ladurée macaron dates back to mid-19th century Paris where it was first created, and the story goes that the recipe has not changed since. Ladurée in the French capital is perhaps the most widely recognized boutique for macarons in the world.

Ladurée has a range of both seasonal and classic flavors that are all gluten-free. Flavors include caramel, chocolate, pistachio, strawberry candy, orange blossom, rose, and more. In total, there are more than 100 perfected recipes that have been developed throughout the years.

The e-store offers various packages of macarons, including assortments of 12, 18, or 24 of a chef’s choice mix of seasonal and classic flavors packaged in a beautiful and chic Ladurée signature box. An eco-friendly box of 12 is also available. Prices are a little steeper than other brands, with a dozen starting at around $41; however, the brand’s history is second to none, and packaging and presentation are one of a kind.

Ladurée offers delivery of its famous macarons to the continental United States via Goldbelly. Local delivery is available in New York City from the Manhattan Ladurée boutique.

Best for Personalization: Macarooz

Macarooz

Macarooz

Unlike other macaron delivery companies, Macarooz stands out for its user-friendly, build-a-box options, allowing each customer to select exactly which flavors they prefer in their boxes.

Each package comes with 12 macarons, and there are up to 20 flavors to choose from: It's up to you to select which ones. There are always at least three to four seasonal flavors and some limited-edition flavors available. And, if you would rather have the selections chosen for you, the team at Macarooz can pick an assortment of 12 macarons for a surprise upon delivery.

Among the company's unique offerings are cocktail-inspired macarons: Mimosa, Strawberry Rosé, and Lemon Elderflower. Other fun flavors include Birthday Cake, Cotton Candy, Blueberry French Toast, and Cookies N Creme.

Another added perk is that all other purchases will come with free shipping. Subscriptions are about $35 per month with additional discounts depending on frequency.

Best for Mini Macarons: RICHART

RICHART

RICHART

Founded in 1925 in Lyon, France, RICHART is a third-generation chocolate factory dedicated to producing high-quality chocolates, macarons, and other confections. In addition to regular-sized macarons, RICHART is one of the few makers to craft these treats in bite-sized form.

All macarons come in a variety of classic and seasonal flavors, as well as savory versions. Variety boxes come with a mix of flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, licorice, coffee, and fresh mint, while others have mango and passion fruit, blood orange and lemon, and rose and grapefruit. Chocolate lovers may want to skip the variety box and go straight for the box of nine chocolate macarons, all made with Madagascar dark chocolate.

Seasonal combinations are also available. The Fall Picking box, for instance, includes colors and flavors representative of autumn, like Roasted Hazelnut, Roasted Walnut, Speculoos, Chestnut, and Salted Butter Caramel. Mini macarons come in savory flavors like Fig and Foie Gras, Parmesan and Honey, and Goat Cheese and Thyme, and make for perfect cocktail party hors d'oeuvres.

Despite their colorful varieties, RICHART products contain no preservatives and no artificial flavoring. A box of nine, regular-sized macarons is around $25, and a box of 12 mini macarons is about $22. Free shipping is available within the U.S., and Canada on orders over $90.

Best for American Macarons: Ma-ka-rohn

Ma-ka-rohn

Ma-ka-rhon

Inspired by the French macaron, Ma-ka-rohn has transformed the classic French confection into an Americanized version, with fun creations from childhood favorites. With over 8,000 outstanding customer reviews, these macarons are a hit.

Bestselling flavors include toasted marshmallow, brownie, fruity pebbles, cookie butter, Cadbury mini eggs, and red velvet. Choose from boxes of 12, 24, or 35 that come in different themes such as Piece of Cake (inspired by classic cakes), Over the Rainbow (inspired by rainbow colors), Candy Shop (inspired by popular candy bars and cotton candy), and Childhood Dreams (inspired by kids' sweet treats and cereals).

There is also a Macaron of the Month club, which is a fantastic deal at around $22 for a box of 12 and can be delivered monthly or bi-weekly. Each delivery will feature a combination of classics and seasonal flavors, which are all listed in advance online. Most macarons are gluten free; however, some may contain gluten in the filling; keep this in mind when ordering if this is a concern. Shipping on orders of $69 or more is free; otherwise, there is a flat rate of about $10.

Best for Dairy-Free: Pastreez

Pastreez

Pastreez

Pastreez was founded by two French Chefs who moved to California, wanting to bring their modern take on the classic macaron to the U.S. The brand exists only online and does not have a retail location, focusing solely on delivery nationwide.

Pastreez's macarons are made from clean ingredients: egg whites, almond powder, and sugar, plus a small amount of food coloring. Delivery time can be slightly longer than other brands, but because of their shelf-stable ingredients and careful packaging, their products' taste is not compromised.

These macarons are free of gluten and dairy because they do not contain any butter or cream like traditional macarons, and they have a longer shelf life for freshness (and fewer calories than most macarons). In fact, they can last up to two weeks if refrigerated.

Build your own box by mixing and matching flavors. You even have the option to add a gift note and reserve them in advance for an event.

Boxes are sold in quantities of three to 48 macarons per box. For about $29, you'll get a package of 12 macarons, which is a great deal. Macaron towers for groups and parties are also available for delivery. A monthly subscription is about $20 per box, which includes 12 macarons. Free shipping is available on orders over $69.

How We Chose the Best Macaron Delivery Services

Our macaron delivery selections were chosen based on a variety of factors, including the brands' unique assortments of flavors, the quality of ingredients, the levels of customization offered, and packaging and presentation aesthetics. Delivery options and pricing for both one-time orders and subscriptions were also reviewed. Customer reviews and the longevity of the businesses were taken into consideration as well.

For example, Ladurée was chosen as the best representation of the original macaron, as the company dates back to the mid-19th century. Dana’s Bakery stands out for its whimsical flavors and combinations that include the trademarked Mookie (a macaron stuffed in a cookie). And, RICHART is one of the few companies that delivers mini macarons instead of the traditional, full-sized versions.
