Look at the early Christmas surprises I have received from ROYCE’ Chocolate Malaysia! 🙂
It’s only 21 days till Christmas and the malls are decked out in the most ethereal Christmas decorations, shops are offering Christmas gift packs and F & B outlets are advertising their Christmas menus.
Have you caught the holiday bug yet? Started shopping for gifts and treats for your loved ones? Been cracking your head for gifts ideas?
Well, you can’t go wrong with food. And chocolates, if I may add.
At Kansai airport in Osaka, I saw many varieties of Royce’ chocolates and it was extremely popular with the tourists as everyone was buying dozens of boxes home.
Even I got caught up with the buying frenzy and bought a box of Pote Goma Cookies which is not available in Malaysia (yay!) and a Royce’ mild bitter potato chip chocolate. The Pote Goma Cookies are crunchy cookie mixed with potato chips and black sesame, and coated with chocolate on one side. Sounds fabulous doesn’t it? 🙂
But frankly, the selections at our local Malaysia’s Royce’ shops weren’t too bad. In fact, we have almost all of the varieties available in Japan.
Royce’ chocolate-dipped potato chips are definitely something unique. It would be my personal recommendation to those seeking a slight variation from the usual chocolate bars. In fact, the chips are light enough to munch on as snacks and here’s a tip; crush some over cold ice cream/gelato for the ultimate feel-good dessert! 🙂
If your intended recipient doesn’t fancy chocolates that much, then opt for Royce’ cookies. Royce’ Christmas cookies comes with these cute Christmas-sy designs which are sure to elicit some delighted smiles. 🙂
For something more elaborate, the Royce’ Christmas Selection – RM148 won’t fail to impress.
The set comes with nutty bars, assorted R chocolates, chocolate wafers, christmas cookies and so much more for the price!
There’s also a Christmas Kids Special, a set for RM75 that includes both the Kid Pure Chocolate and Kids Chocobolo. For individual pricing; the Kid Pure Chocolate is RM 45 while the Kids Chocobolo is RM38.
With its colorful and vibrant wrappings, the pure chocolate discs will definitely be a hit with the kids. The flavours are creamy milk, cacao and pure white chocolate; all sweet and finger licking milky goodness!
The Kids Chocobolo, on the other hand is crunchy and has two layers of strawberry and milk.
And here’s mine; The Winter Wonderland Gift Box (RM200)! 😀
I love it! There’s enough goodies in the box to keep my sweet tooth happy for a month! :DD
Let me show you my little treasure box.
To start off, there’s 40 x Assorted Pure Chocolate (Caramel Milk, Creamy White, Venezuela Bitter, Ghana Sweet). Naturally, I prefer the dark chocolate over the caramel and white chocolate ones but I can assure you that all of Royce’ chocolates are not too sweet.
9 x Nutty Bars. These were not over-cloying due to the absence of caramel/thick nougat and has a lovely crunch thanks to the generous mix of puffs and nuts. I ate a whole bar at one go and didn’t feel stuffed, which was a good thing! 🙂
20 x Assorted Prafeuille Chocola (Honey & Berry Cube).
It was fun biting into this and savouring the sweet syrup inside. The dark chocolate one encased honey while the lighter chocolate one has berry syrup.
6 x Chocolate Wafers Hazel Cream.
These beats Loacker’s anytime! I reckon it’s because there were no cream and just pure chocolate in between layers of thin crispy wafers.
16 x Assorted Baton Cookies.
These make for lovely tea time snacks with coffee.
The yellow packs are golden-baked coconut cookies coated with chocolate on one side. My preference goes to the brown packs; finely crushed cacao nibs blended into a cocoa crust and coated with chocolate on one side. Trust me, you can’t stop at one!
4 x Potechi Crunch Chocolate.
I thought this was rice crisps at first but it was actually crumbled potato chips with a bit of salty hint, perfect to accentuate the sweetness of the milk chocolate coating.
So that’s my wonderful The Winter Wonderland Gift Box! Wouldn’t you agree that it would make a wonderful gift? 🙂
