I just found out that Belgium’s Godiva Chocolatier debuted a beautiful artful box of chocolates to help us celebrate the Year of the Horse for the Chinese Lunar New Year. The Year of the Horse chocolate collection also celebrates Godiva’s 88 years in the chocolate industry.
Why the Asian theme again? Well, since its successes a few months ago with their collection of Chocolate Mooncakes to celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, the Belgian Chocolatier wanted to showcase more Asian-inspired flavors to its consumers.
The box of chocolates features an assortment of signature Godiva chocolates and three unique one-of-a-kind, Asian-inspired chocolate confections. The 20-piece Lunar New Year Gift Box retails at $50 and it’s bigger 32-piece Lunar New Year Luxury Gift Box is priced at $150. Included in each box are:
- A crunchy caramel pear and vanilla ganache covered in a blend of milk and dark chocolate.
- A crunchy almond praline with a sour cherry and honey filling covered in milk chocolate.
- A nutty macadamia cream and pineapple covered with white chocolate ganache.
When I received my gift box, I was amazed with the creative design of Lady Godiva on a horse. The entire packaging of the box adorned in red and gold immediately impressed me with its luxurious and artistic appeal. I instantly felt honored to have received this token of appreciation.
Godiva’s Lunar New Year Collection is indeed an impressive chocolate gift. It’s available now for just a limited time along with eight red envelopes. Asian tradition during the Lunar New Year celebration is to insert money inside red envelopes and give them as gifts to children, family, and friends for good luck and good fortune.
