I'm not a big fan of sweets. However, I do make exceptions. Some of the things I can't say no to include: Key Lime Pie, bubblegum ice cream, fried Mars bar with vanilla ice cream and Royce' chocolates.
Hailing from Hokkaido, Japan, Royce' chocolates are perhaps the most delicious chocolates I've ever tasted. The taste is fresh, delicate, creamy and not too sweet - just the way I like it.
I was lucky enough to have been invited to the Royce' press event two days ago and learn more about the brand and sample some of their top-sellers and new products. After the event, we had a tour of the new Royce' concept store at Singapore's newest darling - the ION Orchard.
Some of the chocolates we sampled:
Nama Chocolate. This literally melts in your mouth as soon as you pop it in. My favourite kind is the Champagne Nama.
Royce's famous Potatochip Chocolate. Crunchy, salty and sweet. Delicious.
Pure Chocolate. These discs are how chocolates are supposed to taste like.
Prafeuille Chocolat or the berry cube. A 3mm-thin strawberry flavoured chocolate square filled with blueberry and raspberry cream. Heavenly.
The Royce' concept store boasts chic, white interiors and the latest refrigeration technology to ensure that their products stay fresh. Also, their customer service team is trained by top Royce' employees from Japan so expect nothing but the best.
The Royce' concept store is located at the new ION Orchard at B4. Other locations are at the Takashimaya Department Store and Suntec City Mall.
