Merci Chocolate

For a gift, I'm looking for Merci Chocolate perafrably the 250g. dark...despite the name, they are I think a German make, and come in flat little bars in a box like a cigar box. Anybody know of a place in Boston I could get them?
Thank you!

  1. I was at Wal Mart the other day and I noticed this chocolate there, it attracted to me because I'm trying to learn french. if this is what you mean, then you can get it at Wal Mart, in NY at least.

    1. Hi where in NY was this: NYC or ..?
      Thank you!

      1. I've never seen Merci chocolate over here, though stores that do imported kinds of things might have them. But - not to sound snooty here - it's not very good chocolate at all. If you can wait until the new year, I may be able to bring some back from Germany for you, though.

        1. Oddly, the Shaws in Porter Square has Merci (it stands out strangely in their candy aisle). But they only have assorted boxes, so no dark only. I also sort of vaguely recall seeing Merci in Cardullo's in Harvard square, but that was a bit ago, and I might be confusing it with some other brand I remember from Germany.

          1. re: viking

            I saw some in the Marshalls on Boylston St., don't think it was just dark tho.

          2. Thank you everybody. I actually got some online, dark too, before it sold out...Surprising to me that it is landing in USA in the odd Shaws, and Walgreens - "What's a chocolate like you doing in a place like this?" ;) While not the absolute premier make, and certainly not the most $$$, I've read it cited as an index of how superior German mass-market chocolate is to the standard in most other countries. And the presentation is great - individually wrapped bars, and flat and solid - so it mails very well...
            Thank you all again!
