French pâtissier Tipiak has unveiled a new selection of Pop Macarons Fruits for the British foodservice market. The eye-catching treats are promoted as “the only gluten-free authentic French macarons available wide scale to the UK hospitality sector.”
Each mixed pack of Pop Macarons contains six fruit flavors in pastel shades, attractively decorated with contrasting fruit-flavored lacing. Featured flavors are blackcurrant, lemon-yuzu, morello cherry, coconut, passion fruit and apricot.
“Macarons have been a huge hit on social media in recent years – introducing a whole new generation to these authentic delights,” said Charlotte Ganier, international development project manager at Tipiak, which supplies a large portfolio of frozen, authentic French pâtisserie to foodservice operators internationally.
She added: “Macarons are now a must-serve ingredient on any afternoon tea menu, as well as being popular accompaniments to coffee or as a sweet buffet option. So versatile, they are also used as decorations or as key ingredients in desserts and freakshakes and can even be served as wedding favors.”
The new Pop Macarons Fruits join an existing range of Tipiak pâtisserie and macarons distributed frozen in the United Kingdom foodservice sector by Central Foods.
Tipiak macarons have significantly higher almond content than most other macarons in the marketplace, making them less brittle and fragile, and less sweet. Gluten-free, with certification from the French Coeliac Association, the product is suitable for vegetarians.
