From history-laden Beijing in the north to mountainous Chongqing and bustling Guangzhou in the south, China has an ancient fondness for fine foods. Among the many idioms that make Chinese such a poetic language is the expression “Min Yi Shi Wei Tian,” which roughly translates to “for people, food is heaven” or even “food is the god of the people”. Throughout its many millennia-long history, China has embraced food as one of life’s ultimate luxuries. And while chocolate may be a newcomer to the Chinese gourmet scene, its popularity has experienced a meteoric rise. Despite the fact that just a few decades ago most Chinese had never even eaten chocolate, European chocolates have become a popular indulgence and an in-demand gift for special occasions.
As a country with deep ties to Confucianism, gift giving plays an important cultural role in China. Gifts present an opportunity for the giver to fulfill multiple traditional responsibilities, including respect for elders, commitment to family, and affection for friends. Individual consumers in China are increasingly turning to European chocolate when seeking an opportunity to indulge, making luxury chocolates particularly popular as gifts. Because of its connotations of wealth and prosperity, gifts that include gold are also perennial favorites for many different Chinese occasions. The zChocolat Gold Collection brings together the best of both fine French chocolate and the symbolism of precious metals, making it easy to find a meaningful and unique gift that’s sure to be treasured. Gilded in a thin layer of food-grade 24 karat gold leaf, each chocolate in the Gold Collection is an example of perfected elegance and underscores zChocolat’s reputation for delivering the world’s best chocolate gifts. Sophisticated packaging further elevates each box into a comprehensive culinary experience that’s ideal for acknowledging holidays, milestone birthdays, and business successes.
Although elaborate gifts aren’t unusual at any time of year, gift giving reaches its zenith during the Chinese New Year’s. Marking the beginning of the new Chinese lunisolar calendar, in mainland China the occasion is celebrated with special customs and foods. Families often travel great distances to be together, and rituals such as tomb sweeping are opportunities to pay respect to deceased ancestors. Gifts are commonly exchanged and red envelopes filled with money are frequently presented to children. Because just the right gift can mark the beginning of an auspicious year for both giver and receiver, zChocolat has developed several products perfect for the occasion. Beautiful pate de fruits make a sweet accompaniment to traditional mooncakes, and flavorful French candies such as gianduja, orangettes, chocamandines and pépites are favorites of both children and adults. zChocolat also offers a beautiful 15 piece assortment of their best French chocolates available in special Chinese New Years packaging just for the occasion.
The Western traditions tying together chocolate and romance have been embraced throughout much of mainland China and occasions such as Valentine’s Day, weddings, anniversaries and engagements are each appropriately enhanced with a chocolate gift. The Lantern Festival at the end of the Chinese New Year’s is also a traditional time for sharing gifts with loved ones and sweethearts. To meet this need, zChocolat has crafted several specialty products that convey equal parts elegance and romance. For example, zChocolat’s stunning half-pound heart-shaped chocolates filled with hazelnut praline make show-stopping anniversary gifts, while their bite-sized chocolate hearts covered in colorful dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and red chocolate couvertures are unforgettable wedding favors. The ability to include a personalized image on the box or even a golden padlock with a customized combination adds additional layers of love-themed luxury.
