  1. Bonbon

    The name bonbon refers to any of several types of sweets, especially small candies enrobed in chocolate. The first reports of bonbons come from the 17th century, when they were made at the French royal court. Their name arose from infantile reduplication of the word bon, meaning 'good'. In modern French and several other European languages, the term simply refers to any type of candy or small confection. This sweet inspired Johann Strauss II to compose a waltz named "Wiener Bonbons".
