Lunar New Year Candy Tray

Here's a sweet start to the New Year! Our serving platter is tailored to the Tray of Togetherness, which traditionally is a sectional serving platter with eight compartments filled with candies, dried fruits, nuts, and other symbolic treats. Share among friends and family.
