…Sounds nice, doesn't it? While it may sound indulgent and more than a bit decadent, we see no reason why bon bons can't be part of your everyday routine. Especially once you discover Trader Joe's Ice Cream Bon Bons, made just for us by a small supplier who specializes in such pleasures.
In France (and the Netherlands, Germany, & Hungary, among other nations), bon bon is a common term synonymous with "candy", or "treat". Ours are definitely "candy" and a "treat", with the added delight of premium vanilla ice cream inside. Trader Joe's Vanilla Ice Cream Bon Bons have a chocolate cookie bottom, a rich vanilla ice cream center, and a generous shell of creamy bittersweet chocolate. Each Bon Bon is a little bigger than bite-size and contains only 60 calories. This is great portion control - get your sweet fix and move on without indulging too much. It's not much of a splurge for your wallet, either. We're selling each box of 12 Bon Bons for $3.69, every day. You'll find them in our freezers.
