Bon o Bon and other Classic Argentine Chocolate Bites that Speak For You!

We, Argentinean people, love good and delicious meals. We enjoy traditional “Asados” or homemade pastas almost every weekend, not only because of how exquisite they are, but also because of the essence of sharing a table with our families and friends. As everyone in the world says, sharing meals is usually a way to share love.

And since we are simple humans, we enjoy sweet treats almost as much as we enjoy a good meal. So we usually like gifting our loved ones sweet snacks in order to give them a message of appreciation that we probably wouldn’t say out loud.

That is why we have these little and beautiful chocolates bites that come with different fillings and in different shapes, called “bombones”. These chocolate bites are often sold individually or in boxes and are the perfect way to express your love without words! Here, we’ll give you details about what we think the 4 most popular bombones of Argentina say:

Bon o Bon: This chocolate bite by Arcor is a creamy and sweety, peanut butter flavored, center of “Praliné”, covered by the crunchiest and thinnest cookie ever, all coated with milk but dark delicious chocolate. Everyone’s favorite. To give a Bon o Bon or to be given a Bon o bon could mean a lot of things but mostly, it is highly related to kisses. Because of our “sweetness week” where it is often said that you give a Bon o Bon for a kiss, you could say that to gift someone a Bon o bon conveys the not so hidden message of a kiss.

Dos Corazones: This bite made by Felfort is one of the bests. It is a rectangular shaped milk chocolate, filled with the smoothest vanilla cream and it has two hearts on the top. This bite basically means “I want to give you my heart” or “I’d like to share my heart with you”. Your love won’t go unnoticed with this chocolate; it comes with a little sticker of a poem in Spanish to make the love-message even more prominent.  

Cabsha: The softest Dulce de Leche over the softest cookie coated with the softest dark chocolate. The Dulce de Leche filling has an almost imperceptible dash of alcohol which makes it special but you can still feel it. So if you want to surprise your friend or a work partner, this bombon could be the perfect gift to sweeten an evening of hard work. 

Marroc: This bite is by also made by Felfort, is made with black and white, “Praliné”. The white one flavored slightly with peanut butter. If someone shares this bite with you: You are important. Believe me. This bombon is so delicious and special that no one would share it with you if you didn’t mean something to them.

In Argentina we have “kioscos” which are super small shops where you can find every miscellaneous thing you needed but more importantly, you can find every treat you want. But do not worry, if you miss kioscos that much you can find Bonobon, Cabsha, Marroc, Dos corazones here in

"Pampa Direct is a fantastic online provider of Argentinian products. I ordered a couple of Yerba Mate teas and their gourd with a bombilla. I’ve received a huge package from Argentina in about a week after my order (and I live in Europe). The shipping was extremely fast and all the products arrived well-wrapped and in great condition. I didn’t expect that, honestly. I’ve been drinking Yerba Mate teas since 2015 and I’ve tried a lot of them. Pampa Direct has a great variety of products, fast worldwide shipping, and awesome customer support. You can easily find lots of positive reviews about their products."

"Pampa Direct is a new store selling yerba mate, and it’s already the best one I’ve come across. They ship worldwide, have the largest selection of brands (brands no other store sells online), and some of the lowest prices I’ve ever seen. After submitting my order I was quickly sent a confirmation email. Then, the next day, an email with my tracking link. My package was delivered in just 4 days (May 13 – May 17). It arrived in a large cardboard box, I hurried to open it and was happy to see everything in perfect condition. Everything from the products they offer, the purchasing process, the shipping times, the prices, and even the customer support were all exceptionally great. Overall, a wonderful experience from beginning to end without even the slightest problem. If you haven’t shopped at Pampa Direct yet, you’re wasting your time and money elsewhere."

"In Italy it was impossibile to find high-quality, handmade mates. Now, thanks to Pampa Direct, everything an Italian matero could desire is easily avalaible in Italy, our 'Belpaese'. Fabulous personalized imperial mate gourds with an almighty traditional big bombilla. That is what I got, but you can purchase -or request!- everything a real mate lover would have. Thank you Pampa Direct! You are the best professionals in the business!"
