A new confectionery shop just opened at Pacific Place today. Perfect timing for the upcoming Halloween week, The BonBonist plays with themes of playfulness and nostalgia, with aims of bringing out the inner child in anyone. Their colourful packaging is adorned with the cute animated faces of their ten Bonbonist characters. With over 70 different sweets collected over a span of a decade, the French curator of The BonBonist, Olivia Niddam, opens her first shop in Hong Kong. 

For those responsible eaters, vegan, lactose-free, gelatin-free treats are available in a variety of flavours, including coke (with hints of vanilla and cinnamon). 

For chocolate-lovers, there are tons of choices, including their Crunchy Balls Charlies, Chocotastic Cocos and  Fruitilicious Frankies.  

Other cheekier options include the Chilli Ban Bang and the prosecco bears, blending sweets with flavours of signature cocktails or chilli.
