Who else is still not done with April Fools’? I know I ain’t! 😈
That’s why I’m still duping loved ones with my “tricking treats” from Sophisca, Taiwan’s first specialty candy brand that has won effusive praise for creating sui generis confectionery that is both quirky and delightfully tongue-in-cheek!
Pictured above are some “sushi” from my Brown Rice “sushi bento” (玄米壽司便當). Psst! They are actually delicious chocolate brown rice crispy treats!
Told ya they are peculiar. Wait, there’s more!
Read on to check out more April Fools’ inspired treats, their freshly minted store at Marina Square as well as an exclusive promo code just for you!
Sophisca at Marina Square
Let’s take a virtual tour with me around their new Marina Square store!
This is not an ordinary bouquet I tell you!
It’s entirely edible! Haha! I’m pretty sure your foodie girlfriend would appreciate this so much more than a traditional bouquet.
Oh hi! Also meet the beautiful Jody, who was totally occupied with decorating her Sophisca cookies.
Seriously, these are too pretty for consumption!
Ooh.. I’m totally ‘head over heels‘ with this one!
This is totally genius! Chocolate high heels! Who would have thought?
This would make perfect treats for any Haute Couture or Cinderella themed party! Haha!
Sophisca feels like your candy fairy godmother has transformed all your favourite daily objects into mouth-watering treats. Check out these mahjong tile sweets!
In terms of cute factor, this mini ‘Local Produce’ packaging reigns supreme.
The best thing about Sophisca is their use of saccharine (an artificial sweetener) instead of regular sugar in a lot of their products so you don’t have to worry about falling off the diet wagon.
Everything in the store amazed me as you can tell from the photo below. 😛
I was literally like a kid in a candy store! Haha!
Now please allow me to introduce to you the lauded April Fools’ Tricking Treats by Sophisca!
Brown Rice Sushi Bento
OMG! I wanna eat everything in this store. 😛
It looks totally like a regular sushi bento on the outside!
And when you open the package, it unveils 25 dainty chocolate brown rice crispy treats that are made with 100% natural brown rice, smothered with Belgian imported white chocolate! Talk about commitment to taste and quality!
The attention to quality doesn’t end here. Each ‘nigiri sushi’ is also individually wrapped to maintain its freshness.
Choco Colouring Pens
Remember the colouring pens Jody used earlier on her cookies? Well, we also got to bring home these chocolate flavoured colouring pens, perfect for embellishing our chocolates, cakes, breads, toasts, etc.
In case you’re wondering, here are the flavours for each colour:
White: White chocolate | Yellow: Lemon chocolate | Green: Honeydew flavour | Pink: Strawberry flavour | Blue: Blueberry flavour | Brown: Milk chocolate
On top of these tricking treats, Sophisca also generously packed a candy goodie bag for each guest. Yay!
This is now sitting in Honeyz Paint House‘s pantry for my sweet-toothed co-workers. 😛
