Guess who’s on ‘The Best Places To Eat Macarons In London’ List!?

“When visiting Ohlala Macarons in London, “oh-la-la” is exactly the reaction you’re going to have. Their collection of macarons looks too good to eat, as they offer fully customizable macarons.”

“So @OhlalaLtd is selling tampon-inspired macarons to raise money for the @BloodyGood__  Period Project. For every box sold, a month's supply of sanitary products will be bought for asylum seekers, refugees and women in need."

Would YOU try one? Luxury bakery launches edible TAMPON macarons dipped in fake blood

“A recent report revealing that thousands of girls are missing school because they can't afford sanitary products has led to a campaign against so-called 'period poverty'. But one company has come up with a rather unique way to raise funds for the issue. London-based luxury cake business OhLaLa is selling tampon macarons to raise money for charity Bloody Good Period."

You can now munch on bloody tampon macarons

“We’re a very period positive bunch. Chat about your flow. Carry your tampon to the bathroom proudly. Recommend a cup for your deskmate. It’s all fine. So naturally we’re enthusiastic about the launch of macarons designed to look like tampons. It’s not that this is a thing we’ve always wanted (we never considered tampon macarons before, honestly), but if delicious treats are a way to get rid of shame and awkwardness around periods, we’re all for them.”

So. Tampon macarons are now a thing.

“Get this: bespoke macaron makers Ohlala have teamed up with the charity Bloody Good Period to create these ‘delicately-flavoured’ white-almond tampon macarons, filled with vanilla, raspberry or rose buttercream. Two from each box come splattered with edible ‘blood’.”

The Gluten Free Macaroon That’s Helping Period Poverty.

“You all know I love a good dessert, but here’s a gluten-free one with a difference! London-based business Ohlala has made macarons since 2013 and is proud to have created the world’s first tampon macarons to highlight a real issue for women around the world.”

So tampon macarons are a thing now

“Put your squeamish sensibilities to one side. Top notch bespoke macaron pastry whizzes Ohlala have joined forces with the charity Bloody Good Period to create 'delicately flavoured' white-almond tampon-shaped macarons splattered with edible blood.”

“Walking into a room filled with relaxed, happy women, clinking chilled martini glasses and tucking into delicious French macarons , I feel proud to have created such a special gathering. It’s a privilege to help a bride-to-be make memories she’ll never forget ahead of her big day.”

Hen party ideas: How to plan a super stylish celebration

"If you’ve ever wondered what the secret to these delicious treats is, and you love baking, this masterclass is the hen party for you. The good news is there’s no fancy equipment involved and everything can be recreated in your own home." 

London Macaron Shops To Follow On Instagram

"Gluten free macarons are available from Ohlala, and you can even specify which particular colour shade you require. And you can even get a photo put on the top. Best of all, they run classes which involve pairing macarons with martinis. Where do we sign up?"

"Even for the most amateur baker like myself, the master class was a complete success and I left feeling totally confident that I now possessed all the tips and tricks to be producing batches of our favourite treats rather that spending a small fortune on a tiny box every time I head to London. But most of all I left with the information of an event that I would recommend to friends, family and couples everywhere. Whether for a celebration or just a day out with the girls, it makes for a fun filled, educational and original way to spend some quality time."
