Is there anything more universally delicious than chocolate? Think about it, it's a staple as a sweet treat, and on more than one occasion has mended a broken heart during a binge eating session.

The art of creating those decadent chocolate treats we love is truly an art form and one not just anyone can master. USA Today completely understands this thought and set out to find the absolute best chocolate shops across the country for their annual USA Today 10Best List.

"Independent chocolate shops across the country offer a variety of delicious and distinctive chocolates that are made with premium ingredients and infused with unique flavors", they said. "Whether you're looking for creative bars, glossy truffles, chocolate-covered fruits, or whimsical bonbons, you can find them at these 10 stores, selected by a panel of experts and voted by readers as the best in the United States."

Making the list as one of the 10 Best Chocolate Shops in America is the Hamtramck-based artisan chocolate company, Bon Bon Bon. The state-wide famous chocolate shop has a beginning as unique as its beginning. "We make everything in Hamtramck," said Adrienne Shonk, head of sales for Bon Bon Bon. "Bon Bon Bon was founded in the backroom of a Coney Island in Hamtramck". Here's what made the shop a top pick for USA Today readers:

"This Hamtramck-based artisan chocolate company, with stores in Michigan, creates bonbons with clever flavor combinations and eye-catching designs that look as delicious as they taste. In their handiwork, Bon Bon Bon’s confectioners — lovingly nicknamed "The Babes Babes Babes" — apply classic French techniques with Detroit ingenuity, along with local ingredients, to make these delectables. Orders avoiding nuts or gluten, along with vegan options and a special Bon Of The Month, are all available."


So, if you haven't yet experienced the magic of Bon Bon Bon, now is the perfect time to treat yourself. Whether you're in Michigan or ordering online, prepare to be delighted by their exquisite creations.
