So when we vacationed in the Philippines a few months ago, we'd always stop by the Royce 'store' (it's not really a store) whenever we're in Greenbelt 5 and hoard...yes, the best way to describe the way I shopped for Royce chocolates was hoard.
The Husband is more of a chocoholic between the two of us so we tried the Royce Nama Chocolate. We chose the Mild Cacao because I love white and he loves dark and we just had to compromise. The Chocoholic Husband loved it and I liked it. Like lang (I only liked it) coz it's too chocolatey for me.
What we bought more of was their Chocolate Bars. Knowing that we want to bring them home to Sydney, we needed chocolates that has a longer shelf life. We bought four flavours: Dark, Milk, White and Almond.
I had high expectations on the Royce White but unfortunately for me, it was a miss. The chocolate was smooth and light. I was hoping for a richer milk flavour and it missed the mark I was hoping for. I'd still buy this bar again though but I would never hoard it.
The Husband enjoyed the Milk and Dark flavours. However, he said he will never consider the Dark flavour as one of his favourites because it wasn't as rich as well.
What we really loved the most from all the bars was the Almond flavour. This was a winner for us. We can finish a bar in one sitting and we felt bittersweet as we enjoyed our last Almond bar at home. I'm definitely hoarding this again when we chance upon a Royce outlet somewhere.
