Mink Chocolates Artist Series Bon Bons

You can count me among those who would prefer to sit at home all day munching on bon bons. I guess receiving bon bons at work is the next best thing. These lovely confections, Mink Chocolates’ ‘Artist Series Bon Bons’, were given to me as a gift of thanks after a recent festival. Aren’t they charming? The yellow rainboots and the pretty rose are my favourites (I know, you never would have guessed).

The gift was a lovely gesture and a great reminder about Mink Chocolate. I first encountered Mink a few years ago and I believe they had just opened at the time. I was visiting Vancouver from Calgary and we went inside on a chilly grey day to warm up with their famous hot chocolate. It was everything we had heard about and more. I remember carrying around a tiny square of their chocolate in my purse for weeks afterward to keep the memory alive, and the combination of a rainy Vancouver day mixed with a hot drink stayed with me with me as a quintessential Vancouver experience.

The beautiful bon bons are gone now; they disappeared in a flash as all good boxes of chocolates should. I’m sure I’ll find my way back to Mink one of these days to relive that first visit and fill up the empty box.
