I, for some odd reason, have this odd obsession with meringues. But…I think I’ve gotten over it now. I always want to get this pastry whenever I see it, and have been, more often than not, been disappointed by it. It’s a whipped egg whites and sugar pastry that is most often associated with either the Swiss or the French.
I swear these were 10-day old meringues, I could instantly taste it from the first bite. Incremental bites did not make it any better. I’m pretty sure we threw both of these out after a couple of bites. Gross. Disgusting. Disappointing. Waste of money.
