French term or phrase: seulement vient en bouche une grâce délicate
Macaroons take only a few grams to cause turmoil in our senses. They should be round, slightly bulging, with beautiful shimmering colors. Our eyes simply devour them. Our fingers caress their smooth surface or are tempted by all the small grains. The flavors titillate the nose when you bite into their fine crunchy envelope. The ears are tantalized by them. Alors seulement vient en bouche une grâce délicate…Une anecdote? Une simple friandise?

What is meant in the three last sentences?

At last the delicacy caresses your mouth. Is this just a story? Can a simple sweetmeat do this?
Explanation:
Just a guess: I think the author is making fun of his/her own high flown language: all this fancy English about a macaroon?!
