My family thinks Bon chocolate flavor is the best they have ever had !!
They LOVE it !
While I don't agree with our esteemed colleague Winded man, I doubt it's the best ever. That said, since I've been here they have come leaps and bounds in terms of quality , consistency and customer service. My kids love the ice cream cake. For DR, it's a good ice cream. 15 years ago it was Bon and Nestle and both were icy. Then Bon came up with etiqueta negra. I personally like it a lot.

When I tasted their normal chocolate ice cream the first time, it tasted like I was eating vanilla.
They must like vanilla. I don't like vanilla ice cream much and don't like their chocolate ice cream at all.

I don't think it is a good ice cream for anywhere. But then, we don't agree occasionally.

You do realize 81% of the outstanding shares of Helados Bon is controlled by Grupo Nutresa, a Colombian Food conglomerate in Medellin?

You need to treat your family to a higher quality, yes I like their chocolate but it is far far from the best I ever had, in fact I give it a 4 out of 10 stars

Bon is a truly crappy, low quality, ice cream. It reminds me of Sealtest ice cream or a cheap store brand in the US. There are several mid-level brands in the US like Breyers or Blue Bell that are much better and cheaper.

I have no idea how they stay in business(?). The ones i go past in Cabarete and Sabaneta are always empty.

Sealtest? I remember that from my youth. I thought it was midwest only.
