Zumboron Day 2011

I did something bad. But I liked it. No, I didn’t kiss a girl, a’la Katy Perry (Man, this blog post got weird pretty fast, huh?). Instead, I ate my own weight in macarons. And I liked it. One-of-them tasted like cherry chapstick :)
Tis the season to eat macarons, kiddies! November has rolled around again, which can only mean one thing.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZUMBO. Now, let’s celebrate by getting freaky with some bizarre flavours..

There were 60 flavours on offer this year and I was keen to sample about 15 of them. Michael and I headed to Zumbo’s newest location at The Star, where we caught up with Laura from StarLoz - she is Ah-May-Zing. We’ve only known each other for a short time but  I’ve already met her mother. I think it’s getting serious :D I also had the pleasure of finally meeting the delightful Rachel from The Creamy Middles. Macarons and new friends? GOOD DAY!

(KayB & StarLoz.. shame about my hair!)

We walked alway with 20 macarons. My favourite of the day has to be the Strawberry Bubblegum. It tasted just like frickin’ hubba bubba!! I almost attempted to blow a bubble with it, because the flavor was so realistic (imagine pink macaron crumbs being spat all over the lounge room).

(Deep Fried Chicken Macaron)

I’m already counting down the days til next years ‘Zumboron Day’. HURRY UP, 2012!!

And just because I'm in the mood, here is Katy Perry to take us out. It's frickin' HANSON! What's not to like about this clip!!! (There goes my street cred). Cheers to Friday!
