BonBonBar is Back for Halloween!

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Here’s a copy of what will be going out to my mailing list…

Hello,

BonBonBar is up and running again!  We are now accepting orders to start shipping on Wednesday, Oct 28 — just in time to treat yourself and others for Halloween!  To commemorate the occasion and to thank you for your loyalty, we’re offering 10% off orders placed by this Sunday at Midnight PT. Coupon Code: sfbay

I’ve spent last the two months settling into Northern California… which has meant seeking out delicious food and thinking about how my confections could fit in.

The fantastic array of coffee roasters in the SF Bay Area has led to the creation of the Coffee Candy Bar.  We use organic, shade-grown Blue Bottle Coffee beans to infuse a layer of ganache that is topped by Chewy Caramel.  Maple-Roasted Walnuts provide subtly sweet and nutty notes to the finish.

Based on my discovery of organic ginger at the Berkeley farmers market, I’ve designed the Ginger Candy Bar, which matches the House-Candied Ginger with a zesty Lemon Almond Nougat.

And with the holidays approaching, I couldn’t resist bringing back the Pumpkin Pie Candy Bar, with a Spiced Pumpkin Caramel and Graham Cracker enrobed in Dark Chocolate.  I like the Spiced Pumpkin Caramel so much that I’m also making a Pumpkin Pie Caramallow by wrapping it around our Vanilla Marshmallows.

I want to thank you for your support and enthusiasm for my artisan company throughout the hiatus!  I’m thrilled to have the company back, and I hope that you enjoy our new confections as well as your old favorites!

Thank you!
Nina
Founder & Chief Chocolatier, BonBonBar

We are now accepting holiday orders.  Please email nina@bonbonbar.com to discuss your needs.  Ordering early ensures a stress-free holiday gift season.

The Malt Bars, Cherry Bars, Orange Bars, and Hot Chocolate Mix have been rotated out of the current selection of confections to make room for the new ones.  I am truly sorry for any disappointment.  They may be rotated back in at some point.

Coming Soon: NorCal BonBonBar!
