St. Patrick's Day is on the 17th of March, and in the spirit of the holiday, we have created a "grand" new flavour of macaron.
These little beauties are filled with a "class" chocolate ganache, infused with Guinness; making them the perfect treat for your Paddy's "shenanagans."
Pop a couple of these little beauties into your mouth, and you're sure to have a great "craic" this Paddy's Day!
