Trader Joe's and Macaron

In French Cuisine, a Macaron is different than a Macaroon, but I don't know why people don't realize that.
Everyone is confused between the two.  Please see the Wikipedia entry:
Picture taken in Paris, France by me in 2009
"The French macaron differs from macaroons in that it is filled with cream or butter like a sandwich cookie, and can be found in a wider variety of flavors that range from the traditional (raspberry, chocolate) to the exotic (truffle, matcha tea)."
  France is like Japan in some way where different styles of cuisine will exist in different regions.  For example, variations of Ramen exists in different parts of Japan as well as other traditional Japanese food.  This is the same for French Cuisine.  Variations exist for Macaron as well.

For those who are interested in my other macaron posts:

We went to Bellingham, WA to Trader Joes couple of weeks ago and found that they sold "Parisien Macaron" and it was absolutely delicious.  It brought back the memories of Paris for both of us.
It was very affordable at 5 dollars!

We bought this Hawaii style antique bag that day.  Trader Joe's has some nice Hawaiian designed eco-bags.
