the one in this quiz is a macaron ( or a french macaroon to make it confusing)
I think you were thinking of the two types of merengue meringue..(making) that can be used for the macarons. (french and italian way)
So macaroon is not the same as macaron, and definitely not Macron
And meringue has two variations and is not the same as merengue..
Or this one more variations ;)
Meringue though have been around as long as I can remember. But dont think you could call those exactly popular either.
