Box of Bon Bons is a Candy item that can be acquired through shoplifting. The Bag of Bon Bons can be sold to (but not purchased at) Sally's Sweet Shop.

The Box of Bon Bons was one of the items available at the official launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.

Obtaining

The Box of Bon Bons can be obtained through the "A Few Bags of Bonbons" shoplifting crime. It can also be found through city finds and can be traded between players.

Unlike the Bag of Bon Bons, the Box of Bon Bons is not a reward from the "Candy" slot on the Wheel of Lame and cannot be obtained from any Job specials.

Usage

Eating a Box of Bon Bons will increase a player's happiness by 25 and increase booster cooldown by 30 minutes.

The Box of Bon Bons is occasionally used as a cheap Candy deposit at the Pot game in Christmas Town.

Buffs

The Voracity branch of Faction upgrades has ten different upgrades for Candy happiness gains in 5% increments.

The 'Absorption" 7* special at Grocery Stores gives 10% extra happiness from the usage of a Bag of Bon Bons.

Booster Cooldown incurred from usage of any item is reduced by 10% from the "Fast Metabolism" 3* special at Grocery Stores and 25% from the "Professional Metabolism" 10* special at Restauraunts.

Like all Candy items, the Bag of Bon Bons provides triple the regular happiness gains starting from 12 hours before, to 12 hours after, World Diabetes Day (November 14.)
