Holiday 2003 Pt. I
The Share & Save Secrets Box was a secretive surprise that housed Holiday 2003’s six Smackers, that also doubled as a book to hide your notes or Lip Smackers from your nosey family and friends. I’m not sure about you but my sister most definitely stole all my Bonne Bell products growing up. There were also the Denim Dream trios that were housed in darling little denim pockets.
Sugared Plum Dream
Share a Strawberry
Sweet Cotton Candy Cane
Six of the seasons most festive frozen fruits and sweets graced the Holiday 2003 Originals collection. Each was a brand new flavor creation but probably one of Bonne Bell's most tame holiday flavor collections in all their years.
Sugared Plum Dream- The Bonne Bell Christmas classic made a return in its usual juicy sweetly sugared plummy flavor with added dreaminess.
Share a Strawberry- This was such a unique strawberry flavor that was only used once for this. Like a perfectly harvested strawberry when it’s still slightly sour before it’s turns sweet.
Sweet Cotton Candy Cane- My absolute favorite from Holiday 2003 and the name is so fun! Imagine the original Cotton Candy spun around a minty-cool peppermint candy cane. Such a unique combination and what made Bonne Bell one in a million.
Melon Memories- Ladies and Gentleman, here is the first EVER Honeydew Lip Smacker! Imagine a chilled honeydew melon for the merriest season. It was sharp and fruity with hints of other juicy fruits that are hard to pinpoint.
Vanilla Wishes- This vanilla captured the experience before you blew out your candles and made a wish. Imagine being in the kitchen with your Mom and she's whipping up a creamy vanilla confection. This reminded me of the Cupcake Lip Smacker from the Friendship Collectibles but slightly different. There was a subtle tangy-ness to it. Almost like a vanilla yogurt or a fancy vanilla dessert that wasn't entirely sweet. Hard to pinpoint but a fun take on vanilla.
Berry Hopeful- This was also another Lip Smacker first! A bodacious, sweet and juicy blackberry that was never done before this and only once after this. It even had a frozen aspect to it.

Fun story, a good friend and I visited Bonne Bell at the Lakewood location in December 2003 and they had their windows decorated with the Holiday 2003 Originals hanging in the window. Bonne Bell was really such a magical place to visit.
