Nicole Macaron FAQs
Does a portion of my order go to charity?
Yes! 10% of our net profits are donated to pediatric cancer patients and their families to help improve their quality of life during a difficult time. The proceeds could benefit anything from meals for the families to medical bills. We believe that research is very important, however we do not want to forget about the families in the "here and now" dealing with the cancer that there currently is no cure for. If you'd like to learn more about the two nonprofits that we support please visit Base Camp Children's Cancer Foundation's website at basecamp.org and Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation's website at alexslemonade.org.
Will the macarons melt while shipping?
We ship our macarons in an insulated freezer wrap with sweat proof cold packs. Should you receive your order with ice packs that have defrosted, fret not, your macarons should still be insulated and cool upon arriving, just be sure to put them right in the fridge once you receive them.
How long do the macarons last upon arriving at my door?
You should refrigerate your macarons right when you receive them. We recommend consuming your macarons at room temperature. We recommend taking your macarons out of the fridge and letting them sit on the counter for 15-30 minutes before you enjoy them :) The macarons should be refrigerated and they are best up to 3 to 4 days once you receive them in the mail. HELPFUL TIP: You can freeze your macarons in a freezer safe container for up to one month! All you need to do is pop them in the freezer and allow them 30-60 minutes to defrost in room temperature before you consume them.

Why should I care about organic macarons?
Organic is awesome! Organic essentially means the way that nature intended. We believe in making a difference with the food that we consume to fuel our bodies. That is why we offer macarons with clean ingredients. We also believe in contributing to sustainability efforts for a cleaner world. We do not source ingredients that contain or have been in contact with pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, antibiotics or synthetic hormones. That is the organic difference!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?
You should expect to receive your macarons within 5-7 days (for non pre order products if available). We estimate anywhere from 1-4 days for processing/baking and an additional 2-3 days for shipping (depending on holidays, weekends, etc). Your order may come earlier than 5-7 days. We will send you an e-mail with your shipping confirmation to track via USPS or UPS. If you have a specific date that you need your order by, please send us a contact request or email to email@example.com and we will work with you to get your order delivered on a specific day in the future.
