best chocolate on earth

Royce will always remain as one of my favorite chocolate brands. It's melt-in-the-mouth texture is extremely luscious and one of a kind. It’s no wonder why people would willingly pay $15 for a box of these chocolates.

If you find regular chocolates boring, Royce has an extensive range of chocolatey products from chocolate covered nuts to popcorns and even potato chips! Most of them tastes great, even if they may sound strange. My next go to product would be the Nutty Bar Chocolate and Baton Cookies.

If you’re a fan of chocolate, give them a try the next time you walk past Royce, you won’t regret it!

Very “giftable” chocolates

I will always remember Royce Chocolate for their melt-in-the-mouth chocolate. The sensation is magical. If it only wasn’t so expensive I would eat their chocolate everyday. Other than their flagship line, their Pure Chocolate series makes for a yummy midnight snack reminiscent of After Eight, but classier.

Their packaging is as you would expect from all things Japanese, simple but well designed. This makes them great gifts for almost any occasion. Nobody will hate a pack of Royce Chocolates.

Heavenly chocolate!

I've always wondered how could chocolate at Royce's be so expensive when we could always buy cheaper ones elsewhere. But when I bit into my first piece of Royce chocolate, I immediately understood why people were willing to pay so much for chocolate.

Royce sells gourmet chocolate, and the items are really of high quality. One special point about Royce chocolate is that they have to be kept refrigerated, which enhances the taste of chocolate when we eat them afterwards. My favourite item is the Champagne nama chocolate, which is chocolate with a fragrant hint of champagne. It tastes absolutely heavenly, so much that I can probably finish one whole box of these fine chocolates by myself.

Other than nama chocolates, Royce also sells potato chips coated with chocolate, which looks and sounds really interesting. But really, go for the name chocolates, they're the best. Ever.

Amazing Chocolates

Royce sells amazing chocolates. They offer many different flavours such as nama chocolate potato chips chocolate. What makes Royce so special is that it is served cold. The way the chocolate melts in your mouth is indescribable, you'll have to experience it yourself.

At first, I was skeptical about getting these expensive chocolates to satisfy my own curiosity. 'Are these chocolates really that good?', I asked myself while looking at the wide variety of chocolates displayed on the pretty shelves. Thankfully, there are free samples offered to me. As soon as I popped a piece of nama chocolate into my mouth, I knew I had to get them. They are so good!

You definitely have to try it to understand why it is so popular.

Irrepressible

Royce chocolates have always been well known for their exquisite series of Nama Chocolates. They are indeed an amazing treat if you do have some money to spare.

I first discovered Royce when my father decided to bring some home for the family to have a taste of it. We passed the small box of chocolates around, savouring the taste of the amazing blocks of chocolate that melts in your mouth. It is truly value for money.

There is a stark employees' attitude at the various branches but I must say that all of their outlets have a very clean, professional outlook which is very pleasing to the eye. The employees at Marina Bay Sands were very warm, friendly and immediately approached me when I entered their shop whereas the employees at ION orchard kind of just stood behind the counter as if I did not exist until I actually bought something. This made me kind of mad because I feel like their service speaks alot about a brand.

What You Pay, Is What You Get!

The moment I walked in the almost pure white Royce outlet at ION Orchard, I could already guess the value of their prices tags without looking. The decor of the store is slick, simple and classy - just what you would expect of a shop selling chocolate at the price of average $10-$15. Royce's target audience is clearly more of the high to mid range kind, but who says you can't indulge in quality chocolate once in while?

And the Royce chocolate is definitely quality chocolate! I literally drool every time I think of the melt-in-mouth goodness that is Royce! My personal favourite out of Royce's entire line of chocolate is the Nama Chocolate series and I absolutely recommend it to anyone with a bit more budget and soft spot for chocolate! It may seem unassuming with it's plain appearance, just cubes of chocolate sprinkled with cocoa powder, but it is COMPLETELY worth all those 15 bucks! From the initial taste of the bitter cocoa powder to the creamy, melting taste of the rich nama chocolate, it is bound to leave you craving for more!

Besides, the slick, simple and classy packaging that matches the store decor makes it a good gift for any occasion, be it Christmas or a birthday gift for a chocolate fanatic! My own friends were definitely happy to receive a box of Royce Nama Chocolate.

The only thing I have any complains about is the service at the store, particularly the ION Orchard outlet. Me and my friend had to hang around the counter for quite some time before the salesgirl meandered over to serve us. And the funniest thing was that we were the only patrons at the store! Perhaps it was because we were students and she assumed that we didn't have the budget for anything at the store. I do hope to see improvements regarding this the next time I visit that outlet!

High-class chocolate comes with a price

Cut into thin, plain squares with no decoration but a dusting of cocoa powder, their gourmet chocolate may seem like nothing much at first, but a taste of one piece will send even the most hardened person into spasms of ecstasy. It's richness is perfect; rich enough to make one crave for more, but not so much that it makes one feel queasy. The chocolate literally melts in your mouth, and I've never seen anyone talk while the the chocolate is in their mouth, since they're usually concentrating on savouring every piece to the fullest.

This might have something to do with the refined taste of the chocolates, but their pricetag also ensures that many try to get the most out of every piece of the delectable confections. A single small box can cost more than $15 (each small square of chocolate costs more than $0.60 for sure). Due to this, they're classified as "high-class" (by which I mean not something you can simply snack on. Well, unless you're a millionaire). However, they are perfect as gifts for special occasions for loved ones (they definitely prove your sincerity), or can serve as an occasional indulgement.

rich and savoury

There are many famous brands of chocolate all competing for business. However, Royce chocolate stands out in my memory. Founded in Sapporo, the company is dedicated to making good chocolate, and good chocolate it is. With various products, all crafted to near perfection, the consumer is spoilt for choice. The chocolate melts onto your tongue and is rich and savoury. The staff are also attentive and know their products well, a bonus (:

Alas, such chocolates come at a price, and is a rare treat. My first taste of this brand was a gift from a friend. One box can cost around $15, and every minute savoring this treat must be treasured.

Sophisticated Chocolate

The only time I get to eat Royce chocolate is when my mother receives them as gifts from her students. I had already heard of Royce chocolate from my Japanese teacher, who had been swooning over it during one of our lectures. How fortunate I was to be able to taste it not long after!

And it was indeed a taste to remember. Royce chocolate has one of the smoothest, silkiest and richest chocolatey tastes I have ever known. Although their chocolate looks simple, the taste and presentation is sophisticated. Passing by their stores at Orchard and City Hall, they have always looked clean and refined, making you feel that every cent is worth the product.

I would definitely keep it on my list of potential gifts for others or even myself in the future.

A classic favourite

My first encounter with Royce chocolates was when my mum was given a box from her colleague. Oblivious to how expensive they were, I knew that what I had in my hands were chocolates I had to take time to appreciate and savor from the first bite. When eaten at the right temperature, the chocolate melts perfectly on your tongue. I have tried their green tea chocolates and the many different types of Nama chocolate and have yet to be disappointed.

What really makes me thank the gods for having Royce in my life however would have to be their potato chip chocolate. The saltiness of the chips are perfectly met with their chocolate, giving you a crunchy, salty and sweet harmony in your mouth.
