Lees of Scotland release new pastel coloured Macaringues with a ‘sweet’ tribute to Scotland’s national animal

21/04/2018

The ‘mane’ event took place at Kelvingrove Park, where creator Lee's surprised locals by bringing along one of the mythical creatures to introduce the brand’s new look pastel coloured Macaringues. 

Getting into the spirit of things, Lees have created their very own rainbow coloured headpiece, fully embracing the unicorn-inspired beauty trend that has swept the nation. 

 
The nation’s love of unicorns seen on everything from cakes to clothes, the timing couldn’t be more perfect. An almond flavoured meringue shell, the Lees Macaringue comes in three different colours, pink, lilac and green, making them the perfect addition to an afternoon tea, a special occasion, or some unicorn inspired recipes. 


The versatile little treats can be filled with a filling of your own choice and are gluten free, nut free, suitable for vegetarians and are only 9 calories per shell. 

Commenting on the new product, Sheevaun Thomas NPD Manager at Lees of Scotland said: "We’ve seen so many people using our Macaringues in unicorn inspired recipes, so what better way to celebrate Scotland’s national animal on its very own day. 
"Our inspiration for the Macaringues has come from the macarons which Paris is famous for but with a little Scottish twist: they are completely different to anything we have previously developed before here at Lees. We’ve worked hard to develop the recipe, and have created a really versatile product that can be used for all occasions.”


Sold in retail packs of 30, Lees Macaringues are available in most major retailers now.
