Foodie Find: Garden Bon Bons

Written by Donna Marie Desfor, Culinary Consultant and Chef | May 13, 2012 10:44 PM

When presented with a box Garden Bon Bons one may expect to find delicious nibbles of vegetable infused petit fours, or truffles with exotic vegetarian garnishes.  Despite their name, however, Garden Bon Bons are anything but edible!  Instead, these are seed balls made from clay and organic compost that are meant to be placed into a sunny spot of soil and watered.  What emerges from the ground is something wonderful you can eat like herbs – basil, chives, parsley and thyme, edible flowers, and herbal teas.  The hand-made bon bons coupled with authentic candy cups and a gold candy pad create an adorable and convincing "chocolate" gift box.  While these practical but not edible little treats might be a bit late for Mother’s Day, they top the list for housewarming, birthday, shower, and host/ess gifts for the remainder of spring and early summer.

Garden Bon Bons:  Box of 10, $15.99 on Amazon.
