What Michigander doesn't love chocolate? With the spring season coming up, and those spring-time holidays flooding the grocery stores with sweets of every kind (egg-shaped Reese's, anyone?), us adults might want to indulge a little bit, too. Luckily, right here in Detroit, there is a legendary chocolatier that you probably haven't heard of.
They're called Bon Bonbon, and surprise, surprise, they specialize in bonbons. But the delicious so much more than that. Their imagininative sweets collection ranges from earl gray flavored ganache to Vernor's candied ginger (a bon bon that any true Michigan local will fall in love with).
Bon Bonbon has been so successful around the Detroit area that they recently opened a second Detroit location. That's a lot of confection creations! Owner, Alexandra Clark, has genuine passion for her work and is proud to call herself the "founding chocolatier." She has traveled the world to learn more about chocolate making, and has settled in Detroit to share her artistry with us lucky locals.
They've been featured in Thrillist as one of the best places to go on a winter date night in Detroit, and we can see why. Bon Bonbon doesn't believe in chocolate with all the frills and fancy packaging. They market themselves to true chocolate lovers who aren't looking for a chocolate shop where the packaging costs more than the chocolate (and honestly, who wants that?). Their unique, small-batch recipes make it easy for them to change their menu regularly and cater to their fans.
Not near Detroit? They ship, too!
