So food it is. And here's one of my favourite reasons for keeping fat!
If you've never eaten Royce Chocolates, then I'm afraid you haven't really eaten chocolates. Brought to you by the very same people that gave you an exciting World War II, Royce is Japanese. While the best chocolates are touted to be from Belgium or Vienna, Royce holds its own. After all, anyone responsible for the Walkman, Hayao Miyazaki, sashimi, cha soba, Iron Chef Rokusaburo Michiba and Ultraman Taro can surely give us good chocolates.
The first thing you'll notice when you're about to savour your Royce, is that the Japanese really know how to make a big deal out of their packaging You bring home your Royce in a padded foil pack and a cooling gel. This is so your chocolates do not melt on you.
Inside, your box of Royce comes with a little plastic spatula and a brochure that pretty much lets you know how incomplete you life is, since there are a host of Royce products you have never tasted - among them their Nutty Bar, Chocolate Coated Potato Chips, and more. Unfortunately it's in Japanese. All that genius in creating the perfect chocolate and they never think to translate their brochure. *sigh*
Finally, after unravelling endless layers of packaging - 5 in all - you get to the... erm... climactic end of your journey. Inside you'll find 20 pcs of 30mm x 20mm soft chocolate cubes, heavily dusted in cocoa powder. Soft! The damn things are soft despite being in the fridge for hours. Imagine that. OMG!!!!!!! Somebody kill me now cos I've run out!!!!! Arggghhhhhh!!!!
Please. Do yourself a favour now. Go down to Isetan in KLCC and buy yourself a box of Royce today. It's RM35 a box, but it's worth every cent. You will love yourself for it. Women will want to have your children. Men will leave their wives to be with you. It's THAT good. I promise.
