ROYCE' Chocolate

Yes, it tastes as good as it looks. Salty and crunchy potato chips and rich milk chocolate ($17). 

Chocolate covered wafers with hazelnut cream ($17). Individually wrapped, which leaves behind evidence of how many you've had in one sitting.

ROYCE' Chocolate opened their first shop in Midtown recently and after getting a taste of their chocolates, I headed up there as soon as I could. The owner of Lady M Confections opened up this shop in the US (it's a Japanese chocolate company) and there are plans to open up two more in Manhattan.

It's a tiny shop with shelves filled with chocolate treats. They have samples so you can give some a try before buying.

Everything is nicely packaged and all chocolates are on display so you know what's inside each box.

Nama chocolates, melt-in-your-mouth rectangular truffles, are their most popular and they come in a variety of flavors. They're kept in a refrigerated case.

I wanted two of everything and it took me a while to narrow it down to the chips and the wafers. Both were excellent and gone within two days of purchase. I'll be going back to try the rest.
