Bon bons

What would you say bon bons are? Have you ever seen anything presented as a bon bon? I haven't until the subject came up this past weekend.

I'd vaguely assumed they're some sort of meringue, probably because I couldn't imagine eating something richer all day, but apparently that's one of the few confections that someone, somewhere, doesn't consider to be a bon bon.

Addendum: It looks as though bonbons are a remarkably ill-defined candy. Does anyone have access to an OED? I'd like to see how close it gets.
