Valentine’s Day might take center stage for much of February, but it’s not the only holiday to take place in the middle of the month. Based on the complex Chinese calendar of ancient times, Lunar New Year falls on February 12 this year, welcoming the Year of the Ox.
If you’re unfamiliar with the holiday, there’s a lot you can learn. But, more importantly, you can mark it alongside its heart-emblazoned February cohort thanks to L.A. Burdick Chocolates and their creative holiday creations.
Unsurprisingly, you’ll find a wide array of Valentine’s Day treats at L.A. Burdick, from their signature assorted bonbons to cakes and chocolate animal forms. The latter offers the first and most smile-worthy link to L.A. Burdick’s take on Lunar New Year.
As you just might guess, it’s a chocolate ox that’s in the spotlight when it comes to this confectionary’s offerings for this holiday. But the adorable oxen aren’t alone—their Lunar New Year offerings include a chocolate ox assortment, Lunar New Year Chocolate assortment, Kweichow Moutai chocolate cigars, chocolate-covered almonds, chocolate-dipped citrus peels, and L.A. Burdick’s signature chocolate mice.
Whatever you’re celebrating this February, you and your favorite chocolate lover can indulge in a treat from L.A. Burdick, whether it’s a heart-shaped box of bonbons or a chocolate figure shaped like an ox.
