The selection features the superb fruity flavours of blackcurrant, lemon-yuzu, morello cherry, coconut, passionfruit and apricot. Perfect for hotels, conference centres and large-scale caterers.

All Tipiak’s macarons are currently the only gluten-free authentic French macarons widely available to the UK food service sector.

Pop Macarons Fruits join an existing range of Tipiak pâtisserie, macarons and canapés supplied frozen to the UK food service sector via distributor Central Foods.

Tipiak macarons have a significantly higher almond content than most other macarons in the marketplace, giving them a superb flavour, and making them less brittle and fragile, and less sweet.
