Valentine’s Day in the Philippines, women usually get flowers or chocolate from their husbands, boyfriends, secret admirers, even fathers.
But in countries like Japan and South Korea, it is the women who give chocolate gifts to the boys.
A month later, on March 14th, the men are expected to return the favor by giving gifts to the ladies—anything from sweets to jewelry or lingerie. This event is known as White Day.
So for those who may have forgotten to give chocolates to their loved ones last Valentine’s Day, you can still make up for it on White Day—with Royce’ limited edition chocolates available at Royce’ shops in Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, The Podium, and The 30th.
Come to think of it, I’m one of them. I can still surprise my boys with Valentine chocolate on March 14.

Christmas just officially started at home with the arrival of Royce’ holiday items for 2016!
Thank you Royce’ for always remembering me 🙂
Royce’ is one of my top favorite Japanese chocolate makers. Here’s what’s inside my box:
I enjoy giving and receiving Royce’s Pure Chocolate box, especially with the festive gift wrapping.
Inside are three kinds of chocolate disks (milk, white, and dark) in individual colorful wrapper, meant for sharing. (Php 720)
Royce’ Decoration Balls contains Pure Chocolate and R Chocolat that you can give as gifts to hang on your tree.
Don’t forget to eat them though! So adorable.
My favorite new item this season is the the Christmas Happy Selection—an assortment of goodies packaged in a Yuletide-themed tin box you can use even after the holidays. It contains Royce’ Potechi, R Chocolat, Pure Chocolate, plus the Strawberry Chocolate Wafer. (Php 1100)
The Christmas Selection comes in two sizes and carries some of Royce’s most popular items: Pure Chocolate, R Chocolat, Amande, the Fruity and Nutty Bars, Petite Kurumaro, and Chocolate Wafer.
Look inside the smaller box (Php 2370)
and the bigger box. This one’s for Jeroen’s office (Php 3460)
This year, the Christmas Popcorn Chocolate makes its debut and I can’t wait to try the crunchy caramel flavored popcorn inside the box. (Php 300)
Royce’ Christmas Cookies are half-coated with milk chocolate and decorated with holiday motifs. (Php 690)
If you like nuts and cookies with a variety in texture, go for Royce’s Christmas Baton Cookies, with hints of roasted coconut in the cookie dough. Love the wrapper too! (Php 630)
Royce’ limited edition Christmas chocolates are available in Royce’ shops at Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, and The Podium while supplies last.

It ain’t Christmas yet but it sure feels like it with all the goodies being sent to our home.
Royce’ Chocolate recently sent us a giant box of Halloween treats and we love it!
Inside: everything from Royce’s limited edition Halloween collection available this October only
We love how Japanese make everything cute and fun, especially for kids. If there’s anyone who knows how to do packaging, I bow to the Japanese.
The most spooktacular package has to be this reusable tin bucket with the cardboard cover
Inside are individually wrapped chocolate treats meant for sharing
Royce’s Halloween Happy Selection features all-year classics such as the Fruit Bar Chocolate, Smile Chocolate, Petit Kurumaro Chocolat, Prafeuille Chocolat, Prafeuille Blanche Chocolat, Baton Cookies, Chocolate Wafers, and Halloween treats.
Jeroen took this to his office.
This one’s for me! Cute tin pumpkin filled with little treats.

Love green tea?
Leading Japanese chocolate maker Royce’ brings back limited edition green tea (maccha) chocolates to Manila.
Maccha is the product of a meticulous tea-making process which involves growing tea plants in the shade, then leaves are stone-ground into a fine powder.
More than just beverage, green tea has been the centerpiece of traditional Japanese tea ceremonies since at least the 16th century.
This July to September, Royce’ once again offers the Green Tea Collection, including Nama Chocolate Maccha, a soft confection made from fine chocolate and fresh cream, covered in powdered green tea.
Maccha Chocolate Wafers are made of a cream wafer sandwich coated with maccha chocolate.
If you’re looking for a richer flavor, try Prafeuille Chocolate Maccha, a thin slice of maccha chocolate filled with green tea sauce.
The Duo Praline Maccha has thick maccha chocolate paste covered in milk chocolate
While the Maccha Almond Chocolate are whole roasted almonds covered in maccha chocolate.
The Green Tea Collection will be available until September 30 at Royce’ Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, and The Podium.
