Chocolate Research Facility: The Choc Tickets

I, Willy Wonky, have decided to allow three children, to visit my Research facility this year. These lucky three will be allowed to see all the secrets and the magic of my facility. Then at the end of the tour, as a special present, one of them will be given enough chocolates and sweets to last him/her for the rest of the life! So watch out for the Choc Tickets!

The Chocolate room. An important room, this! This is the heart of the whole research facility. And so beautiful yes! Below the melting chocolate wall, are bars and bars of chocolate, 100 different flavours! There, it’s all chocolate!

The inventing room. All the most secret new inventions are cooking and simmering in here. The connoisseur, exotic, double fruit series are some of the ones which will make your saliva-gland start working. Not to mention there’s the classic, nut, coffee and tea series.

Only Brad Brat left. The winner, with enough chocolate & sweets to last him for the lifetime! The dark chocolate 70% from Saint domingue in the spotlight.


Chocolate Research Facility (CRF) is a chocolate boutique, which comprises of a retail store and a cafe. The interesting layout of the shop, the unique packaging of the chocolate bars, the intriguing combination of flavours available, meant that you need to grab a bar here! The chocolate are priced at $8, 10, & 12 for different flavours. I brought one bar, guess the flavour!

This post is inspired base on the story, Charlie & the chocolate factory by Roald Dahl. I have made some changes to parts of it, no intention of misusing the author’s right.

i didn’t like that the chocs were wrapped in plastic/cylophane.. very troublesome to take out even though they have nicely divided the chocs to various sizes. but i do like the chocolate ‘bras’ as in the boxes (hmm.. i dunno if LIC typed it as such or erm it was a typo error?)

i’ve tried 6 flavours and all didnt exactly leave an impression. the lychee martini was supposed to be one of their best sellers, for me it was so so (coz can’t taste the lychee nor the martini).

i guess i expected for the price paid, each bite will blow me off my mind. at the end of it, i realised that their emphasis is more on the chocolate than the stuff they mix in it. for me, i am not so much the chocolate person. i’d like the chocs as long as they have nuts in them. hee

oh and my fave part of the store, it’s the small cubes of numbers on the window display.. next time i’d try the stuff at the cafe though. :D

Evan: hahahaha yeah so that people can see them easier? the rest are all in shoe-box alike on the wall though. sinny bug spread to everybody. lol!

lauffabug: Oh mine. So sorry, it was a typo error, i was saying choc bars. Thank you! wow you had 6 flavours already! haha i guess its more of the concept that intrigue me. yeah the small cubes of numbers are clocks, thats what they told me. haha

yeh.. the storage area is really odd. haha. boxes and straight lines everywhere. nothing like what chocolate reallie is. But then again, I’ve only tried two. The earl grey and the spiced tea. the latter was a clear winner. But then again.. if only they mixed dark chocolate with earl grey. that would have been phenomenal.

Perhaps I’ll try more next time. and definitely no lychee martini for me. Thanks laffabug.

sihan, i tot u never been there b4? dark choc with earl grey? sounds like a fantastic idea, i shall incorporate these two into my future bakes haha. then again choc seem to go well with EVERYTHING – banana, orange, raspberries, green tea!

lauffabug: lol! yeah sometimes we are too concentrated on what is in front, that we never look around us.

sihan: haha i think their concept is cool! you will probably go back one la, so many types of choc, your kind of place. LOL

evan: she been there already! that time hear her mention before. haha. yeah please use them into your future bakes so that we can taste and benefit from it. lol!

I’ve tried dark choc and earl grey before in my cupcakes. Worked like magic.. provided that subtle smoky flavor to the entire makeup of the ganache. Lovely. tts why you should try it! hehe.

Anyway. the place is cool. but the chocolate ain’t reallie of substance.. and not to mention i find the plastic wrapper inside damm irritating. haha.

Hi Sihan, no probs! if you like black sasame, it’s one of the better ones i have tasted. it’s with white choc though.

Hi Evan, have you tried cheese and chocs in your bake too? They had this bar which had shredded bits of Parmesan in the chocs. hmm.. i think if they were more generous with their cheese bits, it might have been a winner for me. i saw your latest creation.. salivating already!!

Hi LIC, i’ve published the ice cream entry :D

sihan: haha worked like magic, its music to my ears. lol! yeah i heard from others who also mention their wrapper can be better

lauffabug: hahaha yeah i saw your post :)

spearies: lol! i been getting a lo of enquiries on my food outing, will try to plan for one in March, everybody be patient okay! then we meet for good food : )

putting this place on my must visit list if i ever come down to singapore (the tentative plan is to visit an aunt there sometime this year) :)
ah…what a chocoholic i am!

lauffabug: hahaha of course, everybody is welcome! watch out for my notice : )

evan: lol!

lingzie: hahaha actually i wanted to write the golden tickets, but changed it to choc tickets instead. yeah come come, i can bring you around! :)

Ardz: Hello! prices are like $8, 10 and 12 for the different flavours. The more exotic ones will be like 12 bucks while the more “normal” flavours are 8. Yeah its cool, and they have just opened a new branch at wheelock place, so check them out :)
