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.

Unique gourmet chocolate
Overall Score 
 
4.5
Royce is remarkable for it’s melt-in-the-mouth sensation, and offers a wide range of chocolate to suit everybody. Servers will happily allow you to try as many types of chocolate as you want, so you can get some free chocs while you’re at it!

When I tried the nama chocolate ($15), it was unlike any texture I have ever had before. It was incredibly smooth and delicious. The flavour was powerful, and left a wonderful aftertaste. The Potatochip Chocolate ($15) was also very yummy. You might be thinking - what? Chocolate and crisps? How could that possibly ever work? Well let me tell you - it works like a match made in heaven.
The light tinge of saltiness paired with the sweet layer of chocolate is a dangerous combination that keeps you reaching out for more and more.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Amazing Chocolates
Overall Score 
 
4.0
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.

Heavenly chocolate!
Overall Score

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.

Royce Potatochip Chocolate - An Unconventional Variation on Valentine’s Day Chocolate
Overall Score 
 
4.0
These days, the regular ol’ box of chocolate hearts, like red roses and Cupid, has become so mainstream to the point of being synonymous with Valentine’s Day. So why not make this Valentine’s Day special by gifting your significant other some exquisite chocolate-coated potato chips from Royce?

These melt-in-your-mouth potato chips come in four scrumptious flavors- Original, Caramel, Fromage Blanc (cheese-flavored white chocolate), Mild Bitter- and retail for S$15 per box. The unique blend of sweet chocolate and savory chip is a symphony to the tastebuds and will leave anyone begging for more.

Very “giftable” chocolates
Overall Score 
 
3.5
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.
