I love chocolatiers who experiment with new flavor combinations. And Kee's offers the most wonderful flavor selection of macaroons (macarons) that I've seen to date. My three favorites were: 1.) Kaffir Lime (with chocolate filling); 2.) Passion Fruit (also with chocolate filling); and 3.) Rosewater Lychee (no chocolate in the filling). The kaffir lime and passion fruit were not overly sweet, and I could really taste the authentic fruit flavors. The tiny size of the ones I bought in the assortment bag meant I was able to taste more of them, which was great. (Note: Images above belong to Kee's Chocolates, and are from Kee's website.)
