The energy bars are amazing! We are all from Portland. Where can we buy them? It’s nice to have something healthy instead of a sweet.

Thank you Ms Mac! Perfect wonderful morning surprise! Just what I need to go along with my coffee. Those are too easy to eat. You can’t just eat one so it could be dangerous. Probably eat more than you should. All of them are great!

STFH – Portland, OR – Basil Pesto
KP and I are going mad over your pesto so just wanted to let you know so now I have a “new” obsession besides the coconut macaroons. It’s the pesto! So hopefully we’ll see you soon but we wouldn’t mind trying a little tub so we can have it and share it with friends. Just opened it and can’t stop eating it. It’s delish!

Fran, Honolulu, Hawaii – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars & Gourmet Macaroons
I bought 6 – G.R.A.C.E. Bars and 3 Macaroons yesterday. Gave my neighbor one of the macaroons and now you have another fan.

Judy Marie, Portland, OR – Macaroons
I gave someone your card today. I told him about your macaroons and he said, “I’m very particular about my coconut macaroons.” and I said, “Well then, look no further.”

Frank, Portland, OR – Gourmet Macaroons
I’ve acquired a taste for coconut that I never had before I started eating Catherine’s Macaroons!

Frank, Portland, OR, G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars & Macaroons
“Envelope of Happiness” – Showed Frank how to open a G.R.A.C.E. bar properly so if it breaks apart you don’t lose any and I said “It’s an envelope of happiness”

Judy Marie, Portland, OR – Orange Zest Macaroons & Black Bean & Cheese Burritos

Fran B., Honolulu, Hawaii – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars
Your G.R.A.C.E. bars are super good. I talked to my cousin in Fresno the other day and she mentioned how good they were. She was one of my 3 samplers in July.

Fran B., Honolulu, HI – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars & Macaroons
I didn’t realize you put macaroons in too. What a treat they all are. I ate my meal then I thought I felt like dessert. I remembered I had macaroons in my carryon. Wow! What a great idea. I totally savored one. What a special thing too when I was flying which I just hate.

Fran B., Flying Hawaiian PDX to HNL – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars & Macaroons
Just a quick note to tell you I arrived and the G.R.A.C.E. bars were well received – you made everyone happy. 3 different flight attendants came to my seat to tell me Thank you and two mentioned that they haven’t see you for awhile.”

Thomas, Wholesale Travel, Honolulu, HI – Macaroons
Thank you again for awesome macs!

David Booth, Events International, Thailand – Macaroons

Judy, Seams to Fit Home, Portland, OR – Macaroons
I asked our visiting friend if he wants one of your G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bar and he said, “YAH!” but, don’t bring home anymore of her macaroons.  Those things are addictive.

Melissa and Flight Captain, Alaska Airlines, Honolulu to Seattle, G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars

Hawaiian Flight 26, Macaroons
I just had one of your Al Naturale’ Macaroons. Oh My God!

Hawaiian Flight 25, Macaroons
I’m in dream land right now. These are extreme. I need to get more of these. I want to order some. I’ll go to Lifestream and buy them.

Hawaiian Flight Attendant, Flight 26 – Macaroons
Can I request to have you on all my flights all the time. These are amazing! Thank you so much.

Hawaiian Airlines Flight 26 – Macaroons
Those are amazing! I thought I would eat one bite but I couldn’t stop. Where do you sell these? I’d be a huge hit if I brought those to a party.

Judy, Seams to Fit Home, Portland, OR – Macaroons
I seriously dream about these darn macaroons. I think, “maybe she’ll come today with macaroons. I should just buy a bunch from you. I do dream about them.

Fran B, Honolulu, HI – “Expresso Macaroon”
Now I have a new favorite – the expresso one. That was my treat for today and it was DELICIOUS!

Anne F., Furniss Law, Portland, OR – Macaroons, Orange Burst Cookies
What do you charge for your macaroons? THEY ARE AMAZING!  The lemon cookies dipped in chocolate were so good! I’d like to be able to gift some to my family and friends.  I would love if you would please…1 box of those orange cookies…2 boxes of macaroons. My mother loves them!

Judy, Seams To Fit Home, Portland, OR – Macaroons
I let him (her spousal equivalent) smell the macaroon and I didn’t even let him have a bite. They are my obsession. I love them! Yum yum!

Fran B., Honolulu, HI – Macaroons & G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bar
What would you suggest I bring to a friends house. He invited me long ago to come see his spectacular house. I am finally going maybe along with 6 other…for a tour. How about a dozen of your macaroons???? I will just buy them at Lifestream. Glad you like the idea. Thought of asking you then macaroons popped into my mind. And I’m taken them as a gift to be eaten later or maybe shared with the group if he thinks so. Maybe I should go buy one to try it out as a test case first. Hee hee hee  I went and bought a macaroon.  It was DELICIOUS as usual. The coconut was moist and the chocolate wonderful. I didn’t count, but there were maybe 10 of each kind left, so I am fine for Friday. Thank you for solving my problem.

Already got the macaroons – Afraid they would run out. Will report in after the event.

The macaroons were greeted with enthusiasm, but I left before they were nibbled on.  He knows who you are but may have never talked to you. I am sure I will get rave reviews when I next see all of them. They were such a great thing to bring – thank you for making them. They are what I will take anywhere I go now. I also bought a G.R.A.C.E. Bar that day and ate it yesterday. I will definitely get a bunch of those to travel with.

Rave reviews – Kevin said this morning that your macaroons were a huge hit with everyone.The funny thing is that Kevin had never liked coconut. His mother used to make white frosting with coconut on cakes and he would scrape off all the frosting. Oddly enough he ate one of your macaroons and LOVED them. We need to introduce you. Everyone wanted to know where they came from. Kevin was good advertising telling them I brought them and that they are hand made. I will make sure everyone knows where to get them and that you made them. So Thanks again!

Steve and Kim, Wilsonville, OR – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars
We love them! They are awesome Catherine you do an excellent job. We want to give some to Kim’s brother.

Steve, Wilsonville, OR – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars
Your energy bar is the best one I’ve ever had.  I remember the last G.R.A.C.E. Bar and it was excellent. I’m sure your macaroons are just as good.

Veronica, Honolulu, HI – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bars
I bought some of your energy bars to send to my brother.  They are really good and they are vegan.

I saved one to eat before a run this weekend. The other “disappeared” & only when I asked did they (wife & daughter) confess to taking & dividing it up to eat.  Oh, well.

Super Ono! (Ono – delicious in Hawaiian). What a great treat that was.  I shared a bit with Dave’s sister. I think the G.R.A.C.E. bar was even better than before.  I ate half while waiting for the MAX near NE 122nd. I was famished and I had instant energy from it!

A lot of runners come in and buy those.

Barbara, Portland, OR – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bar & Blueberry Perfection Bar
Wow! I just tried the two bars and they are awesome!  You really have the touch and I am pretty picky about such things. The energy bar is esp. excellent. It seems low/no flour which I love!

James (www.portlandoutdoorfitness.com), Portland, OR – G.R.A.C.E. Energy Bar
“The flavor was much better than most bars.  For better analysis I would need to have another one because I wasn’t thinking that much about it on the trail.  Perhaps it could be a little stickier so chunks of it don’t fall off onto the ground while you are eating it.  I think a good bar doesn’t fall apart even know if it’s getting beat up in your pocket or backpack.  I would want to know the name of the flavor she gives that bar, or is it just a generic bar?  I personally don’t like the name Grace for a bar, if she’s going to market it to athletes it needs cooler name.  Good taste though, and I happy to more field research and hand them out to some friends.”

Erin, Bales Marketplace – Deli, Portland, OR – Sundried Tomato & Parmesan Pasta

I thought I had died and gone to heaven, it was so good.   I don’t even know the words.  I love desserts.  When I go to restaurants the first thing I look at is the dessert menu to see what I’m going to have.  Girl, you are talented.  Those macaroons were so good.  Everything was perfect, the flavors not too sweet and the chocolate was just right.  I had no control.  I had to eat them.  What you did is perfect.  I am an expert in desserts.  I’m addicted now.  I will have to come by the coffee shop and get more.

I would like to officially order a dozen (each) of your macaroons (various flavors) for a few of our dearest vendors/employees.

Gift Response (WORLD FAMOUS Macaroons – variety)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for the delicious macaroons you sent! They are so rich and tasty. I took a little bite of the Original and the Orange Zest, which are wonderful! I will have to pace myself so I don’t eat them all and go into sugar shock:) That was very thoughtful of you to send such a sweet gift.

Simon Maierhofer, ETF Guide (WORLD FAMOUS Macaroons “Ultimates” and gift response
Catherine thank you so much we got the ultimates and they did not disappoint – great surprise for Jodi – we like both nut varieties – Kathy got hers today and loved them especially because they are not as sugar sweet as store bought ones – she may even share them with her family she said:)

Simon Maierhofer, ETF Guide – WORLD FAMOUS Macaroons
Just a quick note…we had a little get together yesterday where Kathy brought some of the macaroons (credit to her because I didn’t bring mine to share) and my brother and sister in law said they were the best they’ve ever had…just thought you’d like to know.
I personally like the cashews and macadamias so I didn’t “discriminate” any of the macaroons:)
