IMG_2402 Every year GODIVA releases a limited edition chocolate set for the Lunar New Year. This is my third year in a row getting these chocolate sets. It's always so much fun to see what kind of new, unique ganache chocolate flavors the folks at GODIVA come up with each year. The boxes are also adorable. I especially loved the Year of the Horse boxes. IMG_2537Well, this year for the Year of the Monkey, the Lunar New Year sets have an assortment of GODIVA classic chocolates plus three limited edition ganache pieces made in the shape of a monkey. The special flavors this year are the dark chocolate green tea, milk tea pu-erh, and white chocolate oolong tea.

IMG_2538The Dark Chocolate Green Tea Chocolate Ganache is made with hazelnut praliné coated in white chocolate ganache infused with green tea, covered in 50% dark chocolate. The Milk Chocolate Pu-erh Tea is made with macadamia praliné with cocoa nibs surrounded by mellow, 64% Peruvian dark chocolate infused with aged pu-erh tea, coated in smooth milk chocolate. The White Chocolate Oolong Tea has a pecan center with hazelnut praliné with crunchy soy nuts surrounded by 71% Ecuadorian dark chocolate infused with Oolong tea, covered in white chocolate. The monkey ganache chocolates are my favorite of the set. I wish I could get a set filled with only the monkey chocolates. IMG_2492

Each box comes with 20 pieces of GODIVA chocolate. The limited edition set runs for $50 in GODIVA stores or online and will be available until February 8th so don’t forget to pick one up for Chinese New Years or Tet!
