What do you mean by "Made the Italian Way?"
Most macaron shops are making their macs using the French method of making meringue and buttercream. Our macarons are made using the Italian method, which involves cooking the sugar before adding it to the egg whites. This method is definitely more difficult and time-consuming, but makes for a softer yet more stable macaron shell.
Do you have a shop I can visit?
Not yet, but we will soon! We are opening up a shop at Eastdale Village May 2020. But we ship nationwide as well!
Are your macarons gluten free?
Yes, everything we make is gluten-free! However, we are not officially gluten-free certified just yet, and would not recommend our product to someone that is hyper sensitive to gluten.
Are they dairy free?
Not right now, but we will be introducing options shortly. Please contact us for more information.
Are they nut free?
Our macarons are made with almond flour and are made where other nuts are prepared and stored. If you have a nut allergy, let us know. We do have the ability to make nut-free macarons for special order. Please contact us for more info.
Why are macarons more expensive than normal cookies?
We understand macarons are more expensive than, say, a chocolate chip cookie. However, we use the absolute highest quality California almond flour, as well as locally sourced butter and eggs. Every batch is also hand-piped, hand-matched for symmetrical-ness, and filled by hand, which takes many more hours to complete compared to your standard cookie.
How fast do you ship?
Typically, our production days at this time are Tuesday to Thursday. Orders placed after Thursday night will most likely ship by Monday of next week, to keep your macarons as fresh as possible and avoid delays in shipping. Larger orders may take an extra day or two to fulfill.
Do you make custom macarons?

Do you wholesale your macarons?
Yes! Email us at iWantMacs@gmail.com.
How long do macarons last?
We recommend leaving them in the freezer until ready to serve for ultimate freshness. This way, they last at least a month. Let them sit out for about a half hour before eating. They’ll also stay fresh about a week in the fridge. Macarons tend to get stale when left out too long.
