Many of you may remember our “biggest littlest fan” – an adorable three year old from Ohio who had fallen in love with South ’n France when her mother received our bon bons as a gift. When Karissa and her family spent a few days vacationing at Topsail Beach last year, they stopped by the shop for some chocolate tasting and hat-wearing fun. Karissa had a good time, but Pascal and I had a blast – we truly felt like bon bon royalty!
Recently I heard from Karissa’s grandmother, who called to order more bon bons and share some sad news. As much as it pains me to write this, I feel it is my duty to be honest. It seems that the Bon Bon Queen has been dethroned. Who would dare to usurp my crown? None other than Princess Elsa, of Frozen fame. Yes, that’s right. Faced with the unstoppable power of Frozen, our bon bons got the cold shoulder.
While we are a little sad to be knocked down to number two on Karissa’s list of favorites, we can’t really blame her. Growing up means facing fresh challenges, finding new heroines, and learning to live with change.
I’m willing to “Let It Go” – as long as South ’n France remains in Karissa’s top three, of course!
