Dragons, Delights and Decadence: Koko Black's Lunar New Year Collection
Australian artisanal chocolatier, Koko Black is ushering in the Year of the Dragon for the 2024 Lunar New Year. In celebration of the widely adored holiday, Koko Black is waving its magic touch on the gifting tradition by unveiling a range of indulgent chocolate treats.
In an ode to the Year of the Dragon, Koko Black offers a bespoke 48-piece light up Lunar Lantern – an extra special package aburst with light both figuratively and literally – containing a nine-layered gold foil tower that holds a variety of 48 irresistible pralines. Once the pralines are consumed, the beautiful package can be used as decor, projecting an entrancing glow. The lantern also contains a light in the top layer draw, ideal for lighting the tea ceremony.
Joining the Lunar Lantern is the Eight-Piece Lucky Lunar Pralines (with four assortments of the fruity-sweet treat), the 25-Piece Chocolatier’s Collection, and the brand new Sichuan Pepper Praline. Koko Black has never been shy to innovate, and its new praline is a tribute to the brand’s creativity and the dragon’s fire-breathing ability. Blending smooth white chocolate with mandarin ganache, this rich dark chocolate praline heroes the added flavour of the sichuan pepper. Those that have preference over spicy or sweet will reunite for this undeniable chocolatey delight.
Koko Black Head Chocolatier, Remco Brigou warmly welcomes the Lunar New Year and speaks to the wide seasonal appeal of the Australian brand.
“Chocolate is for everyone, so what’s most important to us chocolatiers is that we unite people with our creations. Lunar New Year is a significant celebration for our Australasian community and we’re thrilled to be a part of the festive occasion. By launching our Lunar Lantern, we hope that Koko Black is not only an integral part of the gifting and tasting celebrations, but is the light to the ceremony,” Brigou says.
