Macarons. There are so many great flavors available now. Masse's is located in Berkeley, on Shattuck Ave., next door to Saul's Deli. Masse's chocolate macaron was great -- almost brownie-like in flavor and texture. I was less impressed with the orange macaron. I could see the orange color, but couldn't taste any orange flavor. The hazelnut was nice, although I would have loved an even stronger hazelnut flavor. (I like stronger flavors.) Note: I also bought a Yuzu flavored macaron and ate this the day before; it was chocolate-free, but had an excellent flavor.
