Taste the Best Chocolates in Malaysia
Give a gift of the best chocolates in Malaysia to tell someone just how special they are to you.
People have been giving gifts of chocolates for hundreds of years. It started with the Aztecs and Mayans, as these ancient tribes in what would become Central America are credited as the discoverers of chocolate.
They believed that chocolate was a gift from the God Quetzalcoatl. Quetzalcoatl took the form of a feathered serpent who would fly across the skies, dropping gifts of cocoa beans to favoured members of humanity.
Chocolate was first consumed as a drink by the elite classes of these ancient tribes. The Aztecs believed chocolate was able to bestow energy, wisdom, and enhanced libido. When the emperor Montezuma heard about the gifts of chocolate, he reportedly started making a habit of drinking as many as fifty cups a day.
Chocolate Grows in Popularity Around the World
By the fifteenth century, many world travellers and adventurers were exploring the new world and bringing back the riches they discovered there to Europe. One of these riches was the cocoa bean, which could be ground and combined with other ingredients to create the chocolate we all know and love today.
Chocolate took Europe by storm, and by 1700, there were over 2,000 chocolate houses in London alone. Chocolate wasn’t only popular in Europe. It was a favourite all over the world, particularly in Asia. By 1985, a company was founded in Higashi-Ku, Sapporo, Japan. This company was the Royce chocolate company. Royce enjoyed great success as a creator of fine chocolates and niche chocolate products like their signature Nama chocolate and unique salty-sweet potato chip chocolate sensations.
Royce Expands to Malaysia
In 2005, Royce saw an opportunity to expand their brand, and Royce opened a store at Isetan in the KLCC. Today Royce has become a household name brand among Malaysian chocolate lovers. They enjoy the success of their twenty-two stores all over the Klang Valley, as well as Brickfields, Kuantan, Melaka, Kota Kinabalu, Johor Bahru, Alor Setar, and two stores in Penang.
Royce has become the favorite chocolate brand in Malaysia because of their willingness to push the boundaries in bringing Malaysian chocolate lovers new and exciting flavours that take traditional chocolates and add a bit of inspiration to them. Their Prafeuille Chocolat Berry Cube is a perfect example of mixing the old with the new. Fresh fruit flavours are combined with classic milk chocolate to create a taste that’s entirely new and different.
Their signature Nama chocolate now comes in Oolong tea, Kir Royal, Gianduja, and Orange & Mango flavours to add a little touch of Asia to the taste of an elegant chocolate.
