Vegan French Macaron Shop Opens in New Orleans

New dessert shop Mac and Moon sells "Karmacarons," rolled vegan ice cream, chocolate-covered strawberries, and fresh fruit tarts.

Vegan dessert shop Mac and Moon recently opened inside the Auction House Market food hall in New Orleans, LA. The shop is centered around “Karmacarons”—vegan French macarons—that it sells in a variety of flavors including birthday cake, cotton candy, and key lime. San Francisco native Kristina Ostrom and New Jersey native Madisen Gill met while working in a grocery store in Louisiana. The duo experimented with perfecting a vegan version of the French macaron as a hobby before officially launching the brand in 2016 as a catering company for private events. Mac and Moon also sells fruit tarts, chocolate-covered berries, and a vegan version of popular “rolled” ice cream—which can be topped with a Karmacaron.
