Chocolate Indulgence with Royce !

JW Marriott Bengaluru is Launching a premium chocolate and confectionery from Japan and I was invited for the tasting session.

ROYCE’ was founded in 1983 in Sapporo, the capital city of Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island.
ROYCE' chocolate is made in a truly special place surrounded by the beauty and contrasts of
all four seasons.
ROYCE' has brought together the best ingredients from all over the world and developed cutting-edge production techniques to produce a truly unique range of high quality and exquisitely packaged chocolates.
Chef Jolly, Director, F&B started with an introduction to the chocolate tasting session.

 Avani  Raheja and Samir Gadhok, Directors, Burgundy Hospitality spoke about Royce, and the products they plan to launch shortly in Bengaluru on 20th June.

These are a range of NAMA CHOCOLATE-Velvety smooth chocolate that will melt in your mouth
Ghana Bitter-A liquor-free bitter Nama (means Pure) Chocolate with an excellent acid-bitter combination. This was true chocolate indulgence! Egg free, smooth and creamy, these come with a thermal bag to help retain the delicate texture during the journey from the store to your refrigerator. They are similar to truffles and have to be refrigerated. it has a limited shelf life. When I heard the name Nama I said " Nama chocolates in Namma bengaluru"!

Mild Cacao-The smooth flavor and fragrant aroma of cacao fill your mouth in this liquor-free Nama Chocolate.


CRIOLLO CHOCOLATE-Bitter Chocolate that fully conveys the intense flavor of the rare Criollo cacao bean.
CRIOLLO CHOCOLATE Sweet-Moderately sweet chocolate with the delicate flavor of the rare Criollo cacao bean.



PURE CHOCOLATE-The beautiful facade and shape of the Pure Chocolate was designed to enhance both the texture and the shape. This chocolate is available in six varieties, ranging in cacao percentages. Each box contains a set of two varieties - 20 pieces of each - a total of 40 individually


POTATOCHIP CHOCOLATE-The eye-opening combination of salty potato chips coated with chocolate. This was the first time I was tasting a combination of potato chips dunked in chocolate!

BATON COOKIES-Coconut Golden-baked coconut cookies coated with chocolate on one side.


BATON COOKIES-Hazel Cacao Finely crushed cacao nibs blended into a cocoa. These are made of eggs so could not taste them!



We were served with canapes and water in between so as to differentiate between the taste of chocolate.
On the whole I carried my sweet tooth with me :)
The Price ranges from 500 to 1000 and upward. Currently being retailed out of their outlets in Mumbai at JWM Mumbai and Palladium Mall, this range will be launched at JWM, Bengaluru on the 20th of this month.
