I have to been to MotionSweets about fifty eleven times. Ever since Bon Ami closed in St. Augustine there’s been an ice box where my heart used to be. Then, one fateful day MotionSweets liked one of my pictures on Instagram – I thought to myself: “MotionSweets huh? Who are you~?” I clicked on their Instagram, and they had me at “macaron”. The first time I went, I made a point to speak with the owner, Adrian. Turns out we work at the same company, but in different buildings. We talked about food and sweets and Jacksonville, but then, it was time to get down on these sweet treats! I opted for the 8-pack, pulled out my wallet but Adrian stopped me and said “Don’t worry about it, it’s on me.” Man! I knew this guy was cool!! Ever since then, I’ve been back fifty eleven hundred times and I’ve hosted 3 multi course dessert events – with the 4th one coming up on October 20th at 730pm!

MotionSweets has the art of macaron making down pat. Every review that you will read will talk about the texture. Its the perfect bite, not too chewy, not too soft, tasty, but not super sweet. They have the hamburger bun macaron look mastered and their macs are bigger than your normal sized macarons. They also offer buy 3 macs get 1 free.
Another thing that sets them apart is their FLAVORS. When the owner was a little kid I bet they had the 120 count Crayons with the sharpener on the back hahahah side note: I always wanted that. Some of the more unique flavors are: Nacho Cheese Popcorn, Sriracha Pumpkinseed, Spinach Parmesan, Irish Cream, Lucky Charms and my favorite Fruity Pebbles.
MotionSweets is currently focused on macarons but they make the absolute best White Chocolate Red Velvet Cookies. They don’t usually make them but you can special order them. Cupcakes tend to make an appearance as well. Don’t take my word for it, go get you some!
