Something fun and yummy in the chocolate space is finally available in the U.S.
Merci, sold in Europe for some 50 years, is a brand of boxed chocolates manufactured by the German company August Storck KG.
They are miniature bars, in an assortment of flavors made with fine ingredients, nicely packaged in a gift box.
The delicious selection of rich European-style chocolates includes flavors such as Coffee and Cream, Cream Truffle, Dark Cream, Dark Mousse, Hazelnut-Almond, Hazelnut-Creme, Milk Chocolate and Praline-Creme, and merci will delight the palate.
Each flavor has its own individual color wrap, to distinguish it from the other flavors in the box.
The idea for merci was born in 1965, as an affordable yet impressive way to say “thank you” (which incorporates “thank you for being you”). Its popularity spread, and Merci is now sold in 100 countries.
In addition to Amazon, the chocolates are sold at CVS, Target, Walgreens and other chains and grocery stores nationwide.
Can you give a box to yourself?
No one’s going to stop you!
In Europe, after-dinner coffee is often served with a napolitain, also called a pale or tasting square, just 5 to 10 grams. One or two of these small wrapped pieces are placed on the rim off the coffee cup.
While Merci wrapped chocolates are stackable anytime, we enjoy serving them to guests with coffee. They easily can substitute for dessert, too.
A family business now managed by the fourth generation, Storck has been a confectioner for than 100 years.
