Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely. Luxury is defined as an experience and not a price point. Macarons are a luxurious experience because you savor each and every bite and you get to enjoy the various textures and flavors. Apart from these, our French macarons are made with the highest quality ingredients to give them that “authentic” factor that’s so important when crafting these delicious sweets.
No, macarons are a fine pastry. Cookies, at least in North America, are defined as “a sweet biscuit having a fairly soft, chewy texture and typically containing pieces of chocolate or fruit.”
Yes, French macarons can be challenging to make, especially if you’re a beginner. The process requires precision, patience, and attention to detail—even experienced bakers may encounter difficulties! The consistency of the batter is crucial, and small deviations in the measurements or mixing technique can affect the final result. The macarons can crack, spread, or have hollow shells if not done correctly.
Unfortunately we do not currently have any vegan macaron flavors, but we’re working on it!
You can only redeem one reward per purchase, when making an online order.
Yes! Macarons are like cars, there are budget cars and there are premium cars. As opposed to big-box or grocery store macarons, ours are made with world-class & hand-picked ingredients: ultra-fine French Valrhona and Callebaut chocolate, 100% pure Sicilian pistachio paste, authentic Italian Nutella, real vanilla beans, and more! Some of our immediate fans are those who have tried grocery store or big-box store macarons and then tried ours. Their eyes light up and they finally understand why authentic macarons are so popular, loved, and exhilarating.
Yes! But please take into account that our artisanal bakeshop in New York City uses wheat for other Woops! products, therefore the macarons are not made in a dedicated gluten-free facility.
Some macaron flavors may contain coconut, but the sweets that are made with shredded coconut are called macaroons, not macarons. You can check our Ingredient List for all of the ingredients in each different macaron flavor here.
Our delicious macarons and pastries are made with kosher ingredients, but we’re sorry to say that we’re no longer certified by the Orthodox Union (OU) since July 1st, 2018. Still, all our macarons are wheat-free!
It all depends on the amount of points you have available and on the items included in our list of redeemable products.
No, our rewards program points can’t be transferred to someone else.
Unfortunately, our rewards cannot be returned or exchanged for points, cash, another product, or for e-gift cards.
Our rewards cannot be used in conjunction with any promotional discounts.
Of course! We still haven’t met a man who doesn’t love them. These are perfect gifts for Father’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, or any day you want to surprise someone special!
At the moment, most our delicious macarons do have dairy. Still, there’s one flavor available at the moment that’s 100% dairy-free: Strawberry! Unfortunately this is not available online but you can still get this yummy macaron at some of our Woops! stores – check our list of Woops! locations to see if a store near you has it in stock!
Yeap! All our French macarons contain almonds since their shells are made with almond flour (which makes them gluten-free!). Besides this, our Nutella macarons have hazelnuts, our Pistachio macarons contain pistachios, and our Peanut Butter & Jelly macarons have peanuts. Our Birthday Cake and Raspberry macarons also contain coconut oil.
We often change our flavors and sometimes we update the ingredients on our existing macaron flavors. For the most accurate, up to date information on macaron ingredients, please check our ingredient list for each flavor.
Yes, most of our locations do deliver! You can order through our website and choose your closest store at the checkout for them to deliver it t-o-d-a-y if needed.

Our French macarons are delicately crafted with love at our New York bakery located in Brooklyn, NY.
Our master pastry chef created our 15-plus flavors from an Old World recipe that leaves us plenty of room to innovate & every single macaron is handmade using the finest ingredients only.
To make high-quality French macarons:
1. Mix almond flour and powdered sugar.
2. Whisk egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form.
3. Fold in the almond flour mixture.
4. Pipe small circles onto parchment paper and let rest.
5. Bake at 300°F (150°C) for 12-15 minutes.
6. Let cool, fill with the desired filling, and refrigerate.
Tips: Use room temperature, aged egg whites, measure ingredients accurately, be gentle when folding, let macarons rest before baking, and fill with desired filling before refrigerating.
Keep in mind that French macarons are very delicate and hard to make consistently. We believe that our best customers are those who have tried to make macarons!

With Woops! you can build your own macaron boxes, pyramids, and favor boxes and customize them according to your wants and needs. You may choose the size of your box, your flavors, and your sleeves. You may also include a greeting card.

These are included in the final price shown in our page. Here’s a how-to video so you can avoid any accident or mistake, and we promise it’s easy so relax 😉

It’s that simple! Start earning rewards and enjoying exclusive benefits today!
We work hand-in-hand with FedEx and UPS to be extra sure that each one of our customers will get their delicious French macarons in the freshest state. This shipping carrier is able to process and ship our clients’ orders anywhere in the U.S. within 1 to 2 business days (awesome, we know). Please note that we don’t offer delivery on weekends.
Also, all orders placed after 1 pm EST will be processed on the following day, and the orders received after 1 pm on Wednesdays & over the weekend will be processed the following Monday. This is because we don’t ship or deliver over the weekend (or public holidays), and we want to make sure your package is not sitting in a courier facility for an extra two days!
And check this out: if you want your French macarons to be delivered on a specific date in the future, you’ll be able to mark the exact shipping date of your preference in the calendar at the checkout! Yup, lovely surprise for the future.
For special events and catering we ask for a minimum of 2 weeks notice. If you have a tighter deadline, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll do anything & everything we can to make it work for both parties!
Visit our events page or give us a call at 718-576-6722 ext. 9, we’d love to help you!
You’ll have tier immunity for 6 months.
If you want the beeest results, refrigerate your macarons and eat them within 5-7 days of delivery. You might also freeze them upon arrival for up to 3 weeks! And check this out… leave them outside of the freezer for approximately 30 minutes, and if you had them in the fridge then just leave them outside for 10 minutes. They’ll have a just-baked taste!
Earned points expire after 12 months.
The small-sized pyramid has 40 macarons that fit in 4 layers; the medium pyramid has 75 delicious macarons fitted in 6 layers; and the large pyramid has 200 macarons fitted in 10 layers! Awesome, we know.
Here is the layer guide in case you’d like each tier to be filled with specific colors or flavors:
1st layer: 4 macarons
2nd layer: 8 macarons
3rd layer: 13 macarons
4th layer: 15 macarons
5th layer: 16 macarons
6th layer: 19 macarons
7th layer: 26 macarons
8th layer: 30 macarons
9th layer: 32 macarons
10th layer: 37 macarons
Please note that this is an estimate – all of our macarons are hand made, and sometimes they’re a little bigger than usual. This can mean not all of them will fit on the pyramid, but we hope you still enjoy them!
If you ordered your macarons online you can store them in the package they came in since it’s made of plastic.
If, on the other side, you bought your goodies in one of our locations, store them in the fridge or refrigerator with some plastic wrap so they’re safe in there.
For best results, our macarons should be refrigerated and consumed within 5-7 days of delivery, or they can be frozen upon arrival for up to 3 weeks (!).
It’s macarons! Macaroons are dense and chewy cookies made from shredded coconut, sugar, and egg whites. Macaroons are also delicious, but they’re very different to our delicate, melt-in-your-mouth French confection made from almond flour, egg whites, and sugar.
Easy fix! Just head to your profile, click on “Personal Information,” and update your birthday there.
Our French macarons’ shells are made with almond flour and their fillings and ganaches may have dairy and other nuts. And beware because our products could also come into contact with common allergens such as wheat, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, milk, and eggs.
If there’s an allergen you need to avoid, check our ingredient list for the ingredients for each macaron flavor.
We do nationwide shipping to any (yes, any) address in the US territory, except Hawaii and Alaska. And also we’re so sorry if you have a P.O. box, since we aren’t able to deliver to those as well. We offer next-day shipping and 2-day shipping, but please note we do not ship or deliver on weekends.

Macarons shouldn’t have air bubbles in their shells or excessive coloring. They shouldn’t be either too big or too small and the almond flour for the shells should be finely grounded. Macarons shouldn’t be too sweet or have too little filling, and most importantly, all ingredients should be high-quality and fresh.
If you already have existing points, don’t worry! You can transfer your old points to your new account. Here’s how:
Your old points will be seamlessly transferred to your new account, and you can continue enjoying the benefits of our rewards program!
We take extra precautions to ensure that your purchase arrives in pristine conditions. In order to achieve this, we ship our macarons in protective clamshells that are chilled in special packagings. However, if your box or macarons arrive damaged or broken, please let us know!
Macarons are French pastries made with two deliciously crusty almond flour meringue shells that enclose a stunningly yummy filling or ganache.
Ganache is a creamy mixture of chocolate and heavy cream used in desserts. It can be used for luscious fillings that are fit for the heavens. Woops! uses ganache as macaron filling for some of our flavors because it’s premium and has a richer, smoother, and denser texture compared to buttercream.
Macarons have a rich history dating back to the 8th century A.D. when they were first produced in Venetian monasteries. This sweet delicacy gained popularity during the Renaissance when French queen Catherine de Medici brought Italian pastry chefs with her to France in 1533. However, it wasn’t until the French Revolution that French macarons really began to make a name for themselves. In 1792, two Carmelite nuns who were seeking asylum in Nancy baked and sold macarons to pay for their housing. These nuns became known as the “Macaron Sisters”. During these early days, macarons were enjoyed without any special flavors or fillings.
There are several pastry houses out of Paris that are known for their macarons. Still, Woops! is one of the largest franchise & gifting companies in North America that’s mainly based on macarons sold under a single brand at retail… and we’re just getting started.
No exceptions! You’ll earn points on every purchase you make. Remember it’s 1 point per $1 spent in both online and in-store orders.
We offer customized sleeves for our gift boxes and favor boxes! Believe us, they’ll add a stunning touch to any event and celebration.

Though we’d love to offer all our Woopsters all of our exquisite flavors, they may vary depending on the location and their inventory.

Our company’s name is Woops!, with an exclamation mark at the end.
After selling over 100,000 macs in 9 weeks at our first pop-up shop in Bryant Park, we knew we had to keep on making people happy through our sweets… and Woops! we had a business!
We ship nationwide within the U.S., however, we don’t deliver to P.O. Boxes. Unfortunately, we don’t deliver to Hawaii or Alaska either.
And we’re so, so sorry but at the moment we don’t accept international orders 🙁 However, if you live in the U.S. wait no more and place your macaron order online right now.
Because they’re dainty, hard to make, beautiful, and full of premium ingredients. They also have various textures and are absolute flavor bombs!
Since macarons are perishable and have a limited lifespan, we must dispatch them via one or two-day shipping service in order to provide you with the freshest French macarons when they hit your door.
This happens because we offer several options for most of our products, therefore you must select the size in order for the price to be shown at the bottom.
You will earn points depending on the amount of dollars spent on products per purchase. If you redeem a reward and this doesn’t require you to spend any extra amount in dollars, then you won’t earn points on that transaction.
Yes, The Mac-nificent Club will be recognized in all our Woops! locations.
If you have a store nearby, you won’t be able to purchase on this website. Your cart won’t be saved & you’d have to start from scratch.
