According to Wikipedia, “the name bonbon – or bonbons – refers to any of several types of sweets, especially small candies en-robed in chocolate.
“The first reports of bonbons come from the 17th century, when they were made at the French royal court. Their name arose from infantile reduplication of the word bon, meaning ‘good’.”
But not only do these taste good. My bonbons are actually good for you!
