Leonidas was brought into Singapore in 1998, and sold to local company Chocz in 2007, so you can find them at Chocz boutiques around Singapore.
at $19.80++/ 100g, this s*** is not cheap. It works out to be about $3.30 per piece, which seems to be the benchmark for luxury chocolates.
The Marron is a bit of a misnomer, since chestnut is not an ingredient here. I suppose it could refer to the shape, as this piece does look like a chestnut from some angles. Dark chocolate; praline layers; caramelized hazelnuts.
Taste-wise, it did not deliver. The chocolate was decently smooth, the praline not too sweet, but
with premium price these store sell chocolate from Belgium that neatly stock and piled at their glass counter. i seriously feel like in a jewelery store. these pralines, chocolates and confectionery says to be the best in chocolate business. all i know is that they taste really good. the chocolate is fragrant full, the minute it goes into mouth, it glides and releasing awesome chocolate taste. they also have marzipan and candy. the choice of praline like truffles. it is truly amazing and for a serious chocolate lover that can not take regular chocolate anymore.
