Target/Archer Farm French macarons

Anybody see these in Target stores? I went today and was surprised to find a little display in the bakery section among their pre-packaged Archer Farms cookies and pies. They were priced at $3.99 for a box of 6 different flavors and $7.99 for 12. As I was curious, I bought the smaller box. The flavors were:

green = pistachio
cream = vanilla
yellow = lemon
tan = coffee
pink = raspberry
brown = chocolate

I don't know what I was expecting, but I think I was keeping my expectations low. I had heard Starbucks tried to do this and their macarons were subpar. Surprisingly, these were not bad. The shells were not too thick but had a nice crust that gave way into a moist center. The box says Product of France.

Just wanted to know . . . is anybody else seeing these in stores? (I am in Minnesota aka Target territory) If so, opinions?
