Do you offer bonbons as wedding or event favors?
We no longer offer favor boxes of bonbons for weddings and other special events, but you can stop by our Lounge or Factory and build custom boxes on your own OR grab one of our prepackaged bonbon sets in store or online.
If you're looking for a packaged favor, we highly recommend our 60g bars (available here) or 28g bars (available in store) - available in 12 different flavors! If you have additional questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
