The leaves are turning, the air is getting crisp and the days are getting shorter. We are heading into the magical time of year full of comfy layers, cozy meet-ups and yummy seasonal treats. What better time to spotlight one of Yobel Market’s favorite local artisans: Bonbon Bombardier?!
Jenny Bazzetta and Sean Price (a married couple who met in high school at a Ska show) are following their Willy Wonka candymaker dreams by creating small-batch craft confections with a playful flair. They use old world candy making techniques, utilizing local, sustainable, organic and non-GMO ingredients, they hope to provide delectable treats perfect for an active lifestyle and the thoughtful gift giver. They even offer vegan options for those avoiding animal products!
Sean and Jenny are always striving to come up with new, interesting candy flavors. They are determined to bring edible joy to their Colorado Springs community and beyond because, according to Jenny, they believe that “one of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats” -Iris Murdoch.
We are honored to carry their delicious delicacies, and to partner with a thriving community of individually-owned businesses. As Colorado Springs continues to grow and change, we hope these amazing local makers, like Bonbon Bombardier, will remain a staple in our local economy!

My love for fashion spiraled out of control as I entered adulthood. I became obsessed with shopping and purchased more and more to the point that every time I opened the door to my closet I would feel confused, overwhelmed and dissatisfied. This only fed to the vicious cycle of mindless spending that never seemed to end. It wasn't until I worked for Yobel Market that I was able to pull myself out of the rabbit hole. It’s easy to spend mindlessly on cheap items that you rarely wear -- until you take into consideration the hands that make them.
