During these hard times, there is a specific group of people that we call heroes: healthcare workers. Doctors, nurses, and everyone in between are fighting every day to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus as well as nurse those who are infected back to health.
Seeing an opportunity to show their appreciation, Swedish candy store BonBon NYC created special goodie bags full of their delicious treats to give to healthcare workers at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. More than two dozen bags were packed and delivered by BonBon’s staff. They documented their gratitude on Instagram with the caption:
“A small token of appreciation to the healthcare workers at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, one of many groups fighting at the frontlines everyday to keep us safe! Thank you ???♥️ #staysafe #staysweet #stayhome”
BonBon NYC was started by a group of three Swedish friends — Robert Persson, Selim Adira, and Leo Schaltz — and currently carries more than 160 different kinds of candies (including many Swedish favorites!) If you are in the NYC area and miss your fix of Swedish treats, you can order delivery via Postmates, Doordash, and UberEats.
