I wasn’t able to visit the Royce chocolates stall while in Singapore, so it was quite a relief to find a Royce counter in Harbor City, Kowloon. My HK-based friend Mira told me Royce is available in City Super, I didn’t quite know there are a number of them in the territory. Note the picture: the shop girl didn’t want me to take a picture but I guess it was too late 😛
Silly me wanted these Royce chocolated-dipped potato chips to myself, and would have bought a dozen, if my budget allowed. They were simply addictive! What could be more sinful than Royce’s divine chocolate and potato chips combined??
Our Royce shopping stash! The chocolate-covered marshmallows (in orange box) were another revelation. Even the simple-looking Royce chocolate bar was good – not too sweet. What is good about shopping in Royce is that you get to taste any chocolate you like in their delicious range – the sales people would be willing to cut a slice for you and let you sample the flavors.
