In Japan and Europe, "macaron" has been a popular delicacy for years, but in Canada, it is still unknown to most people. At work, most people says, "What is macaron? A macaroon?"
(No! It is not a macaroon.)

A chain bakery called "Saint Germain" in BC, Canada also sells macaron.
Now, it cost 12 dollars for a dozen macaron usually in Canada, which is kind of reasonable because France will be 1 Euro per macaron and 100 to 200 yens in Japan.
For the people who have never tried or don't know what is a macaron, give it a try if you have a chance!
