Jones Bros - Self Destruction

Jones Bro Cupcakes in Aksarben Village makes delicious macarons.  HOWEVER, they do not take care to ensure they are not cross-contaminated.  See photograph above.  It's a little hard to see, but there are crumbs EVERYWHERE.

The red arrow is pointing to a "cookies & creme" macaron.  Which 1) why do they have a cookie flavored cookie?  That's just ridiculous.  2) This cookie is dusted in cookies crumbs.... oreo cookie crumbs.  3) They keep this cookie in the middle of all the other non-gluten macarons.  4) their staff are not educated about cross-contamination, gluten free, or what oreos are made from.  

This upsets me greatly.  Jones Bros makes some of the absolutely best macarons, and I would know this because I've been all over the country searching for them! Their lemon, orange, blueberry and vanilla macarons stand as the best I've encountered so far.  But I do not feel safe eating the since they are covered in cookie crumbs!!  Also they don't seem to have the orange or lemon flavors anymore which is very disheartening.  

Jones Bros - hear me out!  Discontinue the cookies & creme macaron immediately.  It is not necessary and it is not safe for the other macarons.  

Thank you!!
