Socola (the Vietnamese word for chocolate) is run by two sisters. The company's mascot, Harriett, is a winged alpaca that appears on Socola packaging and some chocolates. I had the chance to hear about Harriett from Susan, one of the two sisters behind this venture, at the Chocolate Salon, held in San Francisco last weekend. It was fun to hear about how the company and flavors have evolved. Pictured (above right) were some items from this event.

Inside the 4-piece blue box were the two chocolates listed for today (lower right, and upper left, respectively). Notorious H.O.G. contained delicious hints of bacon. However, my favorite was the Jasmine. Exactly as advertised, all the wonderful flavor you'd find in an aromatic cup of jasmine tea.
