Tax Free World Association Event
Finally, today is the last day of the TFWA trade exhibition. I was working for this event as one of the helpers. This event allows exhibitors to showcase their products and buyers to be aware of what to buy for the duty free shops in their home countries. Naturally, I was more interested in the Fine Food & Confectionary section which featured brands like Leonidas, Godiva and the more common Hersheys and Toblerone.
At I was knocking off, one of the exhibitors came out specially and gave me a whole box of dark chocolates which weigh around 1 kg!
The words on the box read “Finest Belgium Chocolates” and it’s really true! The pralines are rich and smooth, and simply melt in the mouth.
There are a total of 84 morsels of chocolates (2 layers) in the box. These exquisite pralines are made in Belgium and he said that the pralines are still very fresh even though they are flown in from Belgium.
I like the dark and bitter praline best which has a rather strong alcohol taste. Anyone wants to try these lovely sweets? I’ve still got many left!
Earlier in the day, another exhibitor gave a huge bar of Daim chocolate bar to me. It’s actually milk chocolate with Daim caramel. Since I only take dark chocolate, I’m not overly enthusiastic about this but it’s so kind of the foreign exhibitor to think of the staff.
I also got to sample the new Ferrero Rond Noir, which is an extension line of the ever popular Ferrero Rocher. “Noir” means dark in French which is my favourite type of chocolate.
Essentially, the Rond Noir is the same as Rocher with the nuts crusted outer chocolate layer and smooth gooey chocolate encased in a wafer biscuit.
The only difference is that the chocolate used in Rond Noir is dark and not as sweet as the original Rocher.
