Cranberry Bogs and Macarons
The tourist-riddled area is also home to La Maison du Chocolat, which is well worth a visit, particularly if you've got money that you don't know how to get rid of. I bought two macarons--raspberry and coffee--that were, in fact, well worth the $2.50 price tag, even though each one was about the size of a stack of three silver dollars.* The raspberry was particularly well executed, suffused with the essence of the berry without being in the least cloying. The coffee leaned a bit toward the mocha, but was quite satisfying as well. More fun that a tubful of cranberries!
