miss gla’gla

pierre herme has opened up yet another boutique on the right bank in paris. this one is located on avenue de l’opera in the 2nd arrondisement. it’s a relatively huuuuge store, although the offering appears to be limited to macarons, chocolates, pre-packaged cookies and frozen treats.  alas, one still has to trek to rue bonaparte for the croissants and cakes.

i popped in a month ago or so…being drawn like a moth to its miss gla gla sign-post.   miss gla’gla is a rectangular log of exotic ice cream & sorbet sandwich between two rectangular macaron shells.  it comes in 7 different flavour combinations: ispahan, celeste, mosaic, satine (which is the one i tried. the flavors are passion fruit, cream cheese and orange), caramel, chocolat, and montebello.

it’s delicious and exquisitely flavoured in that way only ph can achieve.  that said, i wish that miss gla’gla came bite-size — like one of the small macarons.  (that’s hubs’ thumb in the upper right hand corner of the picture). still it’s pretty spectacular and the packaging is shiny and sleek!

  1. Thank god for ph and yay for another store! Miss gla’gla looks like the perfect summer treat if you ask me…although I was thinking the same thing–the size looks a bit large for “snack”….i bet looking at those glorious colors and flavor combinations was divine! 🙂

  2. will he ever come here like laduree? flying to paris for a fix is too much for one’s wallet

    i’m a bit torn on the issue! i think if ph were to come to the us, i’d be broke from (a) buying macarons all the time and (b) needing to acquire a new wardrobe !
