It’s hard not to gush about Detroit chocolatiers, BonBonBon. In one short year BonBonBon went from a little kitchen with a few customers to three retail stores and loads of praise from across the food and design world. Today, they work from a hip shop in Hamtramck (the city within the city of Detroit) and continue to amaze and delight with flavors that shock and delight. Their super cool shops are popping up all over southeastern Michigan, including Ann Arbor!
Their packaging is nothing to hide in your coat. Precious yet protective, quirky yet simple, the chocolate lover on your list is going to be both perplexed and overjoyed by it. The box holds ten different, handcrafted chocolate bon bons and is nothing short of eye catching. Any valentine that's a choco-phile (and aren't they all?) will lose their bon bons if you sent them these.
Inside the package are ten orange boxes holding the bon bons. This year, the amazing mavens creating all the flavors came to Zingerman's Deli and shopped for inspiration. They created four signature Zingerman's flavors you can only find here, paired with six from their own Valentine's Collection.
