Bon Bons Chocolatier

The mouthwatering delights waiting for you at Bon Bons Chocolatier don't just come from a machine. "Handmade" means there are creative people behind the chocolate you love. Meet the minds behind Long Island's favorite candy emporium:

Mary Alice Meinersman
Bon Bons owner and president, Mary Alice began her sweet career over 20 years ago as the store's chocolate dipper, and her enthusiasm soon led her to purchase the company with her late husband Peter. A Huntington resident since childhood, she sits on the board of directors of the esteemed Retail Confectioners International candy organization and Huntington's Business Improvement District, served as President of the Huntington Business and Professional Women's Club, and is a member of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce and Huntington Historical Society.

Susannah Meinersman
Making this a true family business, Susannah joined her mother Mary Alice at Bons Bons following her graduation from Syracuse University in 1986. The vice president and store manager uses her background in advertising, photography and food styling to help create Bon Bons' unique displays and packaging. She finds inspiration in her travels to chocolate hot spots around the globe. Susannah resides in Huntington Village with her two children.

Eric Lobignat
Eric joined the Bon Bons team in 1992, straight from the chocolate mecca of Paris, France. His pedigree as a chocolatier at the famous La Maison du Chocolat, as well as his stint as pastry chef of L'Esperance and apprenticeships at other French gourmet establishments, prepared him well for his tasty task as head candymaker at Bon Bons. Eric is married and resides in Manhattan.
