Hype Malaysia managed to catch each celebrity for a quick Q&A at the launch. Here’s what they had to say:
Question 1: What song to you best represents your flavour?
Joe Flizzow: Favourite Flavour – Roast Almonds. I think the best song that represents Roast Almonds is Havoc because it’s just havoc. As corny as it sounds but when you eat chocolate, there’s always a certain level of expectation that needs to be reached and this particular flavour is just full on havoc. It gives me the satisfaction I need.
Kuah Jenhan: Favourite Flavour – Cashew Nuts. Probably the Pokemon theme song because it rhymes. But actually, I would go with a gangster song. Just so I can show Joe Flizzow who’s the winner.
Carmen Soo: Favourite Flavour – Hazelnut. Hmm. Okay to me Hazelnut to me is tough on the outside, soft on the inside which is just how I am promoting my campaign which is why I would say that the best song to represent my flavour is I Will Survive. I will survive through anything, chocolate makes me feel good and like me, the hazel but is sweet and strong.
Gan Mei Yan and Jeff Chin: Favourite Flavour – Mixed Nuts. Oh easy! I Love It by Icona Pop! Just like the song goes, we don’t care, we love it, it being mixed nuts of course!
Diana Danielle and Farid Kamil: Favourite Flavour – Fruit & Nut. Best song to represent our flavour would be Savage Garden’s Truly, Madly, Deeply. This is because we get along so well and just like our flavour, fruit and nut goes well with each other and we love it.
Question 2: What is the first song that comes to your mind when you think of chocolate?
Joe Flizzow: Hmm. This is a good one. For me, it’s Let’s Get It On by Marvin Gaye. Good music, chocolate, good company – let’s get it on. Haha!
Kuah Jenhan: Oh I know! Wouldn’t It Be Nice – the Cadbury Dairy Milk Theme song! It’s catchy, it brings back good memories so yeah, when I think chocolate, I think of this song.
Carmen Soo: Kiss Me! No doubt there, it’s romantic and perfect.
Gan Mei Yan and Jeff Chin: What a wonderful world! Chocolate makes everything perfect and brightens up our day.
Diana Danielle and Farid Kamil: I Can Get No Satisfaction by Rolling Stones! The more chocolate the better!
