Warning: This is not your average box of chocolates. Detroit’s Bon Bon Bon is a treat so special they named it thrice — and, most recently, opened up its third location in Midtown.
This women-owned chocolate factory churns out bite-sized works of art, in a variety of daring flavor combinations. Hidden away inside the insanely cute and custom packaging (make sure to snap a pic before and after opening, you know, for the "'Gram") are bons in favorite flavors like Bumpy Cake, Killer Cereal, Mustachio, Bour-Bon-Bon-Bon, Beach Bum Berry, Lemon Bar None, Creme Brûlée, and Coffee & Donuts. Or take a dive into their pre-selected winter collection box, featuring flavors like Pepper-Mint, Nog, Lou Spruce, Yule Log, Gingerbread, and Polar Vortex. Bon lovers can purchase individual chocolates for $3.50 or $35 for 10 pieces, $52.50 for a box of 15, or a 32-piece bon box for $112. New additions to Bon Bon Bons’ sweet treat roster are a selection of chocolate mixtapes, floppy disks, and records (all edible, of course). For anyone looking to gift an experience, Bon Bon Bon offers facility tours where folks can take a peek at the behind-the-scenes process, learn about ethical chocolate, and, yes, make and package their own bons.
