This is going to sound weird but I have this fascination with macarons. Ever since returning from a trip to Paris a few years ago, I can’t get enough of them. I took quite a few photos of macarons in the bakeries and have them hanging on my walls, I have screen savers of maracons, I don’t know what it is, but I love those little round delicate cookies. So when I came across Simply Stacie’s review on this company that made macaron shaped pillows, I knew I had to contact them. I had never heard or seen a pillow shaped like a macaron!
The company’s name is derived from its first product, their signature Macaron shaped pillows. “We originally set out to design the most comfortable pillow we could think of when, all of a sudden, somebody pointed out to us, “Hey that pillow looks a lot like a macaron!” – Candy Cloud
Candy Cloud offers five different colors, each bright and bold as the actual cookie. I let my son choose the color and sure enough, he went with what looked like army colors, Pistachio, green with a brown inside. They are also available in Lavender (purple), Vanilla Raspberry (pink), Earl Grey (blue) and Lemon (yellow). The pillows run $25 each or you can save when you purchase all five together.
Once it arrived, I was surprised on how large it was. I really wasn’t expecting it to be as big as it was. My son was excited to try it out. The pillow while very soft on the outside is just firm enough to rest your head or give a big squeeze.
He loves reading and this makes a great pillow for him to kick back on. It is firm enough to place it behind the small of your back too, for that extra support. I love my new macaron pillow, I don’t know why but it just makes me smile when I look at it! Maybe it evokes the memories of my time in Paris…whatever it is, I highly recommend getting one of these little puffs!
