Royce for Xmas

No I don't mean a Rolls Royce (though secretly I wished Santa was real and he'll send me a new car!). Back to my dreams....

Look what I've received for Xmas!

 See how nicely they wrapped the chocolates up for me?
1st criteria for fine chocolates - quality packaging but of course not all chocolates with a nice packaging equals to quality.

 Royce Coffee Bean Chocolates

This is a new product from Royce. I had been buying Royce since a few years ago and it's good to see that they have expanded their chocolate range. These coffee bean chocolates are actually whole roasted blend of Dominican Republic and Arabica coffee beans and enrobed with smooth milk chocolate. Coffee Bean chocolates are not new in the market but what makes a good combination is the quality of the coffee beans used and the chocolate that was coating it. This one here makes a nice bite due to the milky taste of chocolate that takes off a bit of the bitter taste of the coffee beans. They come in 5 X 34g packs in a box which makes it convenient to snack.

The bread and butter of Royce is its Nama Chocolates (RM45). And this is also one of my favourite chocolate when I want a sinful indulgence.

"Nama" means fresh and it describes one of the main ingredients in making these Royce so delicious is due to its fresh Hokkaido cream. This is not your typical chocolate. These Nama chocolates are actually called ganache due to the ingredients that make up its recipe. In layman terms, it can be called a "soft chocolate" because of the cream that is added to make this chocolate so silky-smooth that it melts in your mouth. I like the BITTER variant compared to the other 7 variants that are available for this range. It's less sweet, with hints of cognac and a slight bitter finish.

It's also nice to see Royce has opened more outlets here in KL as compared to years ago when I can only get them from KLCC. For more info, click on this link.

Have a Royce Xmas! (as I was writing this, I just popped a few of them in my mouth)
