While I don’t eat desserts often, I do enjoy eating ice cream on some occasions. On even rarer occasions, I do think macarons make a great dessert as well (especially if they are high quality macarons).
When I was at the grocery store recently, I saw Mavens Creamery in one of the freezers. I had never heard of Mavens Creamery before, but their macaron ice cream sandwiches looked really good so I decided to try one. I tried the coffee hazelnut sandwich, which is coffee ice cream in the middle of a hazelnut macaron. The combination was fantastic and I would definitely get it again on a special occasion.
Mavens Creamery also had several other macaron sandwich flavors, so if you ever see it at the grocery store near you you can pick out one you like. I got mine at Safeway, but on their website it also says they are available at Whole Foods and Vons.
Apparently, Mavens Creamery is famous because its founders were on the show Shark Tank. After looking at Mavens Creamery’s website, they also have some other great qualities (no artificial flavorings, colors, or sweeteners). The founders were also two women located in the San Jose area, so for me it is good to support local businesses!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
