In Japan, Valentine’s Day is celebrated with a unique twist. Only women give gifts to men on February 14th. After a month of anticipation, men reciprocate these gifts to show their affection in a celebration known as White Day.
Each sweet treat given on White Day has a special meaning. Giving someone a white chocolate bar? That means let’s be friends. A larger white chocolate gift means “I like you.” If you want to show your sweetie how much you love her, you bake her cookies! This a a fun time to give your loved ones chocolate to say thank you for the Valentine’s Day presents they gave you. We know that if you give her the ROYCE’ Potato Chip Chocolates Fromage Blanc, she will love you forever!
Show us your #ROYCElove this White Day! Share your favorite ROYCE’ Chocolate on Instagram @ROYCEChocolate or on Weibo @roycechocolateusa with the hashtag #ROYCElove for the chance to win an assortment of ROYCE’ confections. One lucky winner will be chosen March 14th to pick up their special gift package from our Bryant Park boutique. Good luck!
