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.

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.

This is definitely not your regular off the shelf chocolate. The moment the chocolate enters your mouth it melts into a sinfully rich and creamy liquid, the smoothness of the cocoa butter fuses with the strong cocoa tast to make a perfect piece of treat.

They also sell a chocolate potato chip, which is the ultimate desire of any junk food addict, chocolate and chips are combined into one sweet yet slightly salty snack.

All these goodies come at quite a price, a box of chocolates could easily set you back $15. Their service at the outlets I have visited so far is good in a way that the staff attends to you fully and caters to your needs, but in turn that makes service efficiency a little on the downside.

I have 2 sinful indulgences. They are potato chips and chocolates. I simply love them.

So, can you imagine my delight and to my husband’s horror, when I happened to come across a pack of Royce Potato chip Chocolate given by one of my dear best friend as a birthday gift. I simply love the lightly salted crunch of the potato chips and the warm cocoa melting on your tongue as you savor the flavor of the chocolate. It’s like you’re floating on Cloud 9.

And the only way I could ever stop myself from eating this was when my husband pinched my bottom really hard.

Ouch!

My friend was a manager in one of the top five accountant firms so he was pretty well paid. He once gave a box of Royce chocolates. He told me he would buy these chocolates to reward his staff after the completion of a very difficult and demanding projects.

I thought nothing of it, the box of chocolates he bought me was so small I thought he was a bit of a scrooge to buy such tiny boxes of chocolates as rewards. I finished the chocolates very fast, there were not that many pieces. My friend looked at me with a funny look.

It was only until I passed by the shop and went in to take a look then I realised what that look meant. It must have meant I was crazy to finish such expensive chocolates so fast without even taking the time to savour the tastes. I know now, I will take minutes to finish one piece of Royce chocolate and squeeze every cents of taste out of the chocolate before swallowing.

I am an ardent fan of chocolates and i absolutely adore Royce Pure Chocolate (Venezuela Bitter & Ghana Sweet) - i will never forget this and would always look out for this chocolate whenever I'm out shopping for Royce chocolates!The bittersweet taste of the chocolate is just divine and you could not help but crave for more of such indulgence.

The rich and flavourful chocolate taste would linger in your mouth until the final bit of chocolate has melted completely in your mouth and the thirst for chocolate will continue and the box of chocolates would be gone withing a few days. I have tried various types of dark chocolates but none had ever given that satisfaction that I really desired until Royce Chocolates came into my life. But chocolates are still a little high in calories regardless of whether the sugar level is lower than usual, so a little discretion is still required. A box of chocolates occasionally to satisfy your choc craving is definitely no problem!

Royce is my all time favorite chocolate brands in SIngapore. Needless to say, their chocolates are top-notched. I specially love their Nama dark chocolate series. The texture is creamy, thick, flavorful and super chocolatey. The cocoa is rich in flavor,and yet not too sweet. It also has a small tinge of bitterness which complements the smooth, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate so well.

Their chocolates are very pocket friendly as well. You can get a nice, regular box of chocolates for less than $20, which I feel is totally worth very penny. If chocolates were not fattening, I can eat one entire box in a day.

Recently, I've fallen in love with their matcha series. The green tea flavor is strong and sweet, which I love very much. So far, there aren't any chocolates from Royce that I dislike.

If you're going to get chocolates for someone's birthday gift, you can't do better than getting him or her a box of Royce. Royce Chocolate trumps the likes of Cadbury (and the likes of *ahem* Godiva and Lindt) any time. And your friend who gets a box of Royce from you will probably be delighted to know that he's worth more than the chocolates on the supermarket shelves (including Godiva and Lindt).

Now, about the chocolates, I highly, highly, recommend their Nama Chocolate series which, generally speaking, is rich, dense, creamy, and luxuriant, and which is perhaps Royce's best product. They have just the right chocolate for almost all kinds of chocolate lovers and which of the Nama Chocolate series is best for you will depend on your own personal tastes. If you have what I might call a "mature" palate, go for the dark, bitter variety or the ones with alcohol content. If, like me, you have kid's palate and a sweet tooth, go for their Au Lait or white variety. Personally, however, my favourite is the Matcha variety. I am a huge fan of Matcha. And, unlike many matcha-themed desserts, be it chocolates or ice cream, elsewhere, Royce's Matcha Nama Chocolate does not disappoint. Each neat square is a perfect combo of the characteristic creamy decadence of the regular Nama chocolate and the robust, unmistakable flavour of matcha -- its semi-sweetness, its hint of tannic bitterness, and its light floral quality. It's personally one of my favourite, most memorable Matcha-themed desserts and, if someone doesn't stop me, I might just down a whole box at a go.

And that's pretty much all I see Royce as.

Must as I cringe giving chocolates to someone as a present, there are just times when I'm forced to buys stuff for people I don't like and what else is more pleasurable than buying them fattening food disguised under a perfect exterior!

I've always chosen Godiva or Lindt as my chocolate of choice. I remember it was at ION, I didn't know there was a supermarket on the top floor and assumed the place was too classy to have one, so I had to choose between awfullychocolate and Royce and I picked the latter.

I tried one when my friend opened the present and to me it's just really too overwhelming. I like the truffle-y taste of it but it's still much too rich for me. I'd take my Lindt back anyday.

Royce. No.

I had a box of Royce Dark Chocolate for birthday once and it was so addictive, I became addicted instantly. Each miniature square of chocolate is perfectly cut, dusted in cocoa powder, and melts sweetly in your mouth into a rich creamy, chocolatey texture.

I remember finishing the entire box within two days, and that was my best restraint at going to the fridge to just get one more of those tasty square sweetness!

I then tried to buy it after I have finished but it was too expensive, however, given how perfectly-made each box is, the price is completely worth the quantity. Royce's Dark chocolate would made perfect gift to anyone.
