Socola Chocolatier
Year of the Dragon Box

$48 —

In Vietnamese culture, the Lunar New Year is called Tết Nguyên Đán, often shortened to "Tết." This holiday signals the arrival of spring and thus new beginnings. It's celebrated by everyone — between family members, friends, colleagues, and more. During this time of year, sweet treats and other symbols of good luck and fortune are exchanged, to welcome in an auspicious year.

Our Year of the Dragon Collection is inspired by the inviting aromas of Lunar New Year celebrations — from pandan and coconut-scented warm sticky rice, to spicy and sticky ginger peanut candies, to the fragrant steam wafting off of a hot cup of tea ... and so much more.

Chúc mừng năm mới! Happy New Year!

Craft

Socola Chocolatier is an award-winning chocolate company that creates artisanal handcrafted chocolates and confections inspired by the diverse flavors of Vietnam.

We are led by our CEO and Chief Chocolatier Wendy Lieu, whose heritage and artistry permeates through everything we make.

Our origins: Co-founded by Wendy and her sister, Susan Lieu, Socola has always been a family endeavor. Wendy always had a passion for chocolate and was dreaming up (and cooking up) her own truffle recipes when she was a teenager. Susan is a perfect counterpart to Wendy, because her talent and acumen was in business and marketing. Susan was always finding and creating ways for more and more people to learn about and experience Socola!

During the early days, Wendy and Susan couldn't envision what Socola has become. The two sisters started off this business by selling directly to family and friends, setting up in front of their parents' nail salon during the Santa Rosa's Downtown Market in the summertime. Today, Socola is a vibrant business with an amazing team of staff members who work together to create the most stunning chocolates at our brick-and-mortar shop in the middle of San Francisco!
