Every bonbon should be a unique experience. Pure in taste, because: if you want to eat chocolate, you should also taste chocolate.

What goes in a Puccini Bonbon?
At first glance, this seems like a simple question, which can be answered from the three most important basic ingredients: chocolate, cream, and unique natural ingredients that give our bonbons their adventurous flavor. With the right skills, combining these ingredients creates beautiful and delicious treats for you to enjoy. However, this is not the full story of what goes into a Puccini Bonbon. That can only be explained from the passion, attention to detail, dedication to taste, aesthetics, and quality, and the down to earth philosophy of our master chocolatiers. Connecting with traditions and crafts
First, let's take a look at the selection of the only natural ingredients used in our range of bonbons. These ingredients range from sugared spicy ginger, native to Southeast Asia, to roasted nuts native to tropical Mediterranean climates, to the world-famous Lübeck marzipan from Germany. Each ingredient has an intrinsic link with our bonbons that goes beyond quality and taste. This bond stems from a legacy and tradition that tells the story of generations dedicated to mastering their craft, often like Puccini Bomboni family businesses. These wonderful stories are told not so much through words or pictures but experienced through every bite of your bonbon.
Beauty beyond aesthetics
We pay a lot of attention to finding ingredients such as thyme, lemongrass, and rhubarb that meet our standards for inclusion in our chocolates. This element of curiosity and attention to detail has been a part of Puccini Bomboni since its inception in 1987. Curiosity alone does not translate into a delicious bonbon, however. A free-spirited nature, a willingness to make mistakes, endless experiments, and respect for every ingredient are just some of the elements that made the creation of 40 original bonbons possible.
Each bonbon contains months of experimentation and an emotional bond with our master chocolatiers, Sabine van Weldam and Ans van Soelen. This also includes striving for the perfect shape that both complements the flavors within the bonbon and makes the bonbon's appearance stand out. The conspicuous shape and size of the bonbons are an expression of Sabine's simple philosophy that it should look as good as it tastes, even if that means going against what is customary. As an artist and her portrait, Sabine creates each bonbon with passion and emotion, allowing each individual to experience and connect with the bonbon in a unique way.
