Lemon Bon Bons | English Bon Bons

in Aussie Favourites

This is a guest post by work experience student Jemima.


lemon bonbonsLemon Bon Bons are a small blob of soft lemon flavoured toffee with a dusting of sweet lemon flavoured confectioner’s sugar.

The word bon bon originally came from the french word meaning “good”. The use of this name led to the word “bonbonniere” first being used in 1818 to mean a box of sweets (as you might expect to receive at a celebration).

Lemon bon bons contain sugar, glucose syrup, water, hydrogenated vegetable fat, dextrose, sorbitol, citric acid, flavouring, gelatine, colour E100, emulsifier E473. They are appropriate for dairy and nut free dietary constraints/choices and you get 25 bon-bons in 100g.

Our bon bons are an old fashioned favourite from England. In researching them I found that a bonbon has differnet meanings: in England it is any sort of small soft toffee, fruit or nutty confection, some dipped in chocolate; whereas in the US it is more commonly refering to marshmallow or fruit dipped in chocolate.

Here is an example of what I found during my research – a Norwegian recipe. Enjoy!
1/4 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 cup Powedered milk
1/4 tsp. Lemonade Cordial / lemon juice
1/4 tsp. Icing Sugar (powder not mixture)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
2 tsp. Shredded Coconut
Mix all ingredients except coconut. Roll into a ball shape. roll in coconut; chill.
