Royce Chocolates has always been elusive to Manilans and aren’t we glad they now have an official franchisee in the Philippines. These are the Angs, the same family behind the Diamond Hotel. Royce Philippines first store is now on soft opening in Rockwell – a timely occurrence we might say, since it’s the peak of the gift-giving season that’s Christmas! Before this, we were quite content getting our Royce fix from Japanese stores like Konbini in Greenhills or whoever brought these divine chocs home from Tokyo, Hong Kong or Singapore. Royce Manila was kind enough to email their price list (with matching brochure to boot.) Our verdict : Royce Manila prices are only 10 per cent higher than Royce Hong Kong or even less. This should be very good, since we don’t have to fly out of the country anymore to get these chocolates we crave 😛
Compare prices stated in brochure and compare with prices in Hong Kong after the jump, at current exchange rate of $1 HKD = P6.05.
