Canelé's violette has always been my favourite until Jewels blow me away with their Black Palm Island Salt Macaron. Since I can't make up my mind, I shall have macarons from both and surprisingly, my choice is actually Canelé despite their macaron shells being hollow with a tiny bit of chewy centre. If you happen to try these macarons back to back, you will notice the almond and chewiness Jewels' macarons get to offer but what left a deeper impression is the stronger flavour Canelé's has.
Our taste buds determine something good or bad by comparison. Hence, it is not surprise after eating Canelé's rose / salted caramel macarons, Jewels' seems mild in flavour and less sweet.
