  • $\begingroup$ I object, it can't be a rainbow if there are only 6 colors! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I removed the rebus tag because the answer (which I already knew from somewhere else) didn't look like what I commonly think is a rebus, though rebuses are really hard to define. Maybe ask on meta if you think rebus is a good fit here so we don't end up in an edit war. $\endgroup$

The answer is ...

... salted, one of the basic flavours.

Each of the six pictures ...

... has three pieces of information: The colour, number and flavour of the macarons. The colour determines the order of the images (although for aesthetic reasons, they are already in order), the number determines which letter to take from the flavour:

S red 3 raspberry
A orange 3 oranges
L yellow 1 lemon
T green 4 pistacchio
E blue 6 blueberry
D violet 6 lavender
