We don’t have to wait for Halloween or Valentine’s Day to treat ourselves to chocolatey treats. Just ask Queen Elizabeth, who’s well known for being a year round chocoholic — and we have the scoop on her favorite bite-sized sweets that we can all indulge in like royalty!
According to the recent documentary about some of the finest and fanciest shops in the UK, Billion Pound Bond Street, Elizabeth is a big fan of a chocolate brand called Charbonnel et Walker. The company is one of the lucky businesses granted a coveted Royal Warrant, which is essentially a catalog of places that have been deemed worthy of providing goods and services to the royal family over the years.
Holding a Royal Warrant also comes with a strict confidentiality clause to make sure no one is spreading Windsor family secrets… but chief chocolatier Adam Lee was able to drop a few sneaky hints about Elizabeth’s chocolate habits.
“I can just say that she has very floral tastes, which may become evident if we look at the chocolates a little bit later, but maybe we should start with our two most popular chocolates which are rose and violet creams,” he said while guiding cameras through the shop. Lee then quickly joked, “I never said a word, never said a word!”
We aren’t too surprised to learn Elizabeth has fancy floral flavors as her favorite (say that 10 times fast!). These truffles are made with dark chocolate that’s been infused with rose and violet essential oils and topped with crystalized flower petals.
Although we can’t just pop down to the shop and find them here in the US, you can buy a box of 16 truffles (eight of each flavor) online (Buy from Liberty London, $22). We’re sure each bite will make us feel just as regal as Her Majesty!
