The best chocolates in Singapore

Godiva is a Belgium company that specializes in luxury chocolates. I absolutely love their range of chocolate truffles, such as the white truffle Belgian Chocolate and Dark chocolate ones. In fact, Godiva sells superior chocolates even to upscale chocolate brands Royce and Vosges. Of course, it is natural that high quality chocolates cost a lot more than the average chocolates found in NTUC - I blew $350 at one go on Christmas presents!

Recently, Godiva introduced soft served chocolate and vanilla ice cream in their shops. I adore their soft serve ice cream and it is now my favourite food item from Godiva. I would recommend the chocolate flavour over the Vanilla as their chocolate flavoured ice cream tastes extremely rich and I could literally taste the cocoa. On the other hand, their vanilla flavour is nothing special. (This is expected, as Godiva is a Chocolatier afterall)

Godiva is the best chocolate you can get in Singapore. If you have a penchant for chocolate, I would strongly recommend Godiva! Also, Godiva chocolates make a really good christmas or valentines day present!

When I first saw that Godiva was selling chocolate ice cream I was really excited, but I was slightly disappointed when I tried it. The ice-cream is decent, but decent can’t compete with the many excellent ice cream parlours around Singapore.

The chocolate wafer cone that the ice cream is served in was decorated with dark chocolate and nuts at the edges, and the ice cream was slathered in chocolate sauce. I liked that it looked amazing, but I could tell that the wafer was not fresh and lacked crisp.

Overall, even though it carries the Godiva brand, and gets top marks for presentation, the ice cream fails to stand out from the crowd.

I suppose Blair Waldorf was right in her worthy aphorism proclaiming her love for Godiva - Godiva does sell superior chocolates even to upscale chocolate brands Royce and Vosges. Not easily found just anywhere, Godiva is the gift of choice of people returning on business trips bearing presents to placate neglected spouses and children. It is also a good comfort eat - if you can afford it, that is.

Godiva chocolates are so rich and decadent. I especially like their truffle chocolates - placing one of them into your mouth would instantly engulf you in chocolatey goodness, and melting it with your tongue would reveal an inside that's sweeter than professionally written greeting cards, and less artificially so, to boot!

While I do love the chocolates, I hate the prices - they tend to be rather unaffordable for me. Even so, I dream of receiving these boxes as gifts ;)

Godiva chocolates have been one of the top choices for gifts due to its top notch quality chocolates as well as their classy and not over the top packaging. Personally, I have received godiva chocolate truffles a couple of times and was never disappointed after trying their chocolate truffles. Though I'm not a chocolate fan, these truffles really hit all the right spots and can be very comforting especially on a bad day.

I loved their hazelnut truffle where the chocolate was bitter yet sweet at the same time and the hazel nutty flavor enhanced the entire experience. The truffles were smooth and rich and each time I popped a truffle into my mouth, I knew I was in for a good treat as the flavors exploded in my mouth.

I highly recommend Godiva to people who are looking to try good quality chocolate truffles. Be prepared to spend quite a bit on these babies but it is truly worth it in my opinion. Quality comes with a heftier price tag after all.

Godiva in my humble opinion should earn for itself a place in the Oxford English dictionary for the meaning of indulgence.

People only go to Godiva when they have hit the jackpot, want to impress their significant other or when they know they are going to die the next day and they have not yet experience orgasm. Their chocolates are that good.

Personally, the one time I actually blew $300 on chocolates was for their white truffles Belgian chocolate. It was awesome and not to mention that I had the best sex ever in my life that night! But do take note, this is not something you have on a regular basis unless you are some sort of tycoon!

The Godiva chocolates I purchased dripped with exquisiteness. They were coated with a rich brown or white chocolates that made passers-by drool within an instant. I certainly did! Almost. I prevented it by purchasing these assortment of truffles, no matter the price.

My wallet felt lighter. I was engulfed with a fusion of exhilaration and desperation. Desperate for more cash that is. Exhilarated with my purchase. My coins and notes were begging to be used despite hearing a voice saying "No!No!Bankrupt!" at the back of my head. I ignored it. I bit into a truffle that was sprinkled with hazelnuts. Bliss. My box of truffles became empty within seconds. I wonder what and where does Godiva's cocoas come from.

I had passed by the shop at Raffles City many times and from the decoration of the shop, I guessed that the products sold should be very expensive. So I had not stepped into the shop before.

Last Christmas, I thought I would thank my staff by buying them some good chocolates and so I finally entered the shop. The staff was very polite and I was not quite used to such good service from a staff in a candy shop. I looked around the items on sales and realised I was being served by a staff from a goldsmith shop and not candy shop.

I calculated that if I were to buy enough quantity for all my staff, it would cost me well over a hundred dollars even if I chose the cheapest chocolates. I ended up leaving the shop with no purchase.

Once in a while indulgence!

I am the type who when i want chocolate, i'd rather go for the real thing then the fake ones, even though how dirt cheap they cost. This is because these chocolates most probably just have less than a hint of cocoa in them and mostly just sugar, so the product ends up tasting sweet and plasticky, which just makes the whole chocolate experience horrible.

I'd rather slowly savor a small piece of quality chocolate and enjoy every single bite. And godiva chocolates surely does it for me. It is really a once in a while indulgence though, or it would be great as a gift to someone special.
