A well-made piece of chocolate can be compared to a great piece of art – made with creativity and finesse, they bring undeniable happiness to people who get to enjoy them. Janice Wong takes this to a whole new level, by creating literal, edible art with her desserts. What customers end up with is a selection of desserts that resemble masterpieces.
Don’t miss out on the Chocolate Crayons ($36 for box of eight, $105 for box of 40) — with flavours such as Passionfruit, Grape and Peppermint — and Box of Assorted Chocolates ($12 for three pieces to $90 for 25 pieces) that they’re best known for!
Flavours are so unique and quirky, yet so satisfying.
They include Gingerflower, Kopi, Chilli Padi and BBQ Bakkwa Pork praline poprocks.

Founded by a young Ferdinand Hédiard in 1854, the luxurious chocolates from Hédiard were once sold from a humble cart in Paris. Known for delivering aromatic, powerful flavours in each bite, this premium delicatessen is a great choice for those who prefer a stronger taste when it comes to having sweets. They offer everything from delicate pralines to chocolate bars and truffles to chocolate-covered almonds — all enhanced in Hédiard’s luxury boxes.
We’d recommend trying out the classic selection with a Box of Assorted Fine Chocolates (from $12.90) or treating yourself to some Chocolate Truffles (from $9.95) that simply melt in your mouth.
