If you forgot to send Valentine’s Day chocolate to someone special, or need a reciprocal gift, you’ve got an “out.” You can still celebrate 4708, the Chinese Lunar New Year (February 14 to 28th). It’s the Year of the Tiger.
Moon cakes are traditional, but few people would choose them over Burdick Chocolate’s exquisite chocolates and confections, in keepsake wood boxes tied with a red and gold “good luck” ribbon and a gold wax “good luck” symbol.
Bonbon lovers will relish a special chocolate assortment created for the New Year: ganache infused with the flavors of Asia. Take a bite of Plum Wine Brandy, Lemongrass, Green Tea, Mango, Ginger, Cashew Sesame, Lapsang Souchong chocolates and more. ($20.00 to $63.00)
For a bit less chocolate intensity, there are chocolate macaroons, which is the gourmet’s version of a moon cake ($24.00) and chocolate-dipped fruit ($22.00 to $44.00).
