JUST LIKE those “conversation” hearts, except these don’t taste like chalk covered in soap. Valentine’s Day macarons from Olivia Macaron in Georgetown in DC are here to help you express your love in 20 languages. These limited-edition Conversation Macs arrive in an Olivia Macaron iconic gift box, complemented with a custom message gift tag. The box of 20 macarons ($65) includes a combination of Olivia’s signature and seasonal flavors of rose, lemon meringue, wedding almond and vanilla. The Conversation Macs are available for pre-order, only through February 4, so place your order now! Nationwide shipping (free to many cities) is available February 8 through 10, or opt for in-store pick-up through Valentine’s Day.

Found at Costco: 25 heart-shaped macarons. Hmmm, maybe no further message is necessary. Only at warehouses, not online. / MyLittleBird photo.

OR THERE’S this: A recent sweep through a refrigerated aisle at Costco turned up this box of 25 heart-shaped  macarons from Le Chic Patissier in raspberry and vanilla ($12.69). They don’t seem to be on the Costco website, so you’ll have to brave a warehouse to score a box. (If you can go in the middle of the day, do it: I got in and out of there in about 40 minutes on Friday, and that was with lots of browsing, which is, of course, how I noticed the macarons.)
