Donsuemor – Gourmet French Madeleines Review


Donsuemor madeleines are elegant little French cakes with distinctive shell shapes. Rich and buttery with a unique flavor and texture—soft and moist with lightly crisped edges—they are made with the finest quality, all natural ingredients.

Donsuemor captures the tradition of these little French cakes, and creates a madeleine unlike any other. Once you taste them you will know why Donsuemor is the one you remember.

Donsuemor madeleines are available in five flavors, Traditional, Dipped, Lemon Zest, Chocolate, and Dipped Chocolate.

I recently received an elegant gift box of the variety sampler of madeleines.  I don’t believe that I had ever had a madeleine before this review.  When I was visiting Paris I had pastries that were incredible, but no madeleines.  I’m sure I would have loved them as the French really do know how to make pastries.  I have never had a croissant or pastry in the U.S. that comes even close to the goodness that came from the shops of Paris.

The box I received would make a great gift as it is a high quality gift box and looks quite impressive.   I was eager to try the four different varieties included- the traditional, lemon zest, dipped, and chocolate madeleines.  My overall favorite was the lemon zest.  I am not a big fan of lemon baked goods, but these little treats were delicious.  I am a chocolate fan so I was even more surprised that I preferred the lemon zest over the dipped and chocolate.  My advice is obviously stick to the lemon zest, but Nana who is not a sweet lover found them all to be enjoyable.  She has claimed them as her own and finds them to be a perfect small treat.  The portions are small, but with something this rich it is the perfect size.

Check out my personal picture I snapped before Nana had a chance to finish hers!
