A very good start! :)

My favourites are Icelandic "Bingo kulur" with chocolate covered licorice caramel. Maybe they are more candy than bonbons, but they are amazingly good!

Kamana said...

excellent start to a great meme! milk chocolate caramels are lovely, but i prefer nougat or pralines.

adrienne said...

although i am adamant that dark chocolate rules(!), without a doubt when it comes to bonbons, champagne truffles from teuscher!

Don't talk to me about chocolate - I just ate a bar of lovely Galaxy chocolate and then punished myself for 20 minutes in the gym! the chocolate is still sitting on my thighs and now I have a pulled muscle!!

Cris Siqueira said...

Hummmm
yummy, i love milk chocolate caramels too, i've already seen they being made in a dairy industry when i was in college!!

querida jane, my favorite one is a tipycal brazilian chocolate. the name is Serenata de Amor (Love Serenade) and is made with cashew nuts cream. (You must notice that i really love cashew nuts and all things i can made with cashew nuts).
I post about this chocolate cause you have to see this one, when you have time!!

marinik said...

dark chocolate truffles for me please... I also love the dark chocolate bare with the raspberry filling from Godiva mmmmm.

Cate said...

oh goodness, you are going to make me choose just one kind of bon bon to call my favorite? ok ok, white chocolate-cardamom truffles. wait, no. salty dark chocolate caramels. no, dark chocolate coconut! this is hopeless, jane.

Dorte said...

I agree with Cate ... it's too difficult to mention just one. I love all chocolate dark or milky, but without any fruit or alcohol flavors added or the worst - mint!

Ida Nielsen said...

I'm drooling reading this. My favourites are both Danish brands; 'Dumle' or 'Guld karameller'.

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

Chocolat noir fourré au praliné... et belge ! Mmmhhh !

Yum! My favorite is called Mozart Kugel it is marzipan ball wrapped in layers of dark chocolate.

Joanna Jenkins said...

An excellent start! Chocolate is the only way to start anything in my book!

And the blue door is wonderful. I have a thing for blue doors. I have one in my kitchen!

Franny said...

Oh you're very clever Ms Jane... and I'm with the majority here.. dark choc truffles are da bomb with a glass of red of course.

Kristina said...

Crescent Moon said...

I have a wonderful recipe that mixes bittersweet chocolate and marzipan. Those homemade truffles are my favorite, but I also really love reeses peanut butter cups. Peanut butter cups are the only craving I've ever had while pregnant.
