Whatever happened to Mon Cheri hazelnut chocolates?

Wanted to buy them this year for a gift for memories sake and don't see them anywhere. Online I see mon cheri chocolate covered cherries but that's all I can find. Did they stop making them?

  1. I tried to find them a couple of years ago and learned they had been discontinued. :(

    1. I believe they were discontinued around 2008. In the US Ferrero Mon Cheri were just the hazelnut filled variety. There were issues in some states with importing the liquor filled Cherry version, so they created an American-only variety.

      Then about three years ago they introduced Ferrero Kusschen in Europe. They're little foil wrapped pieces filled with hazelnut cream and chopped hazelnuts (they come in a milk and dark variety). They're hard to find in the US, but you may be able to locate a gift pack at an import store or perhaps duty free shops at the airport.

        I don't know if it's exactly the same, but that sounds like Ferrero Roche hazelnut candy.

          Rocher and Küsschen are not the same. The küsschen are squarish and not covered in chopped hazelnuts, like rocher.

          I bought the liquor filled version and did not like them. I didn't realize when I bought them they were filled with liquor. Ended up throwing them out in the trash.

          1. They are still producing the hazelnut version for Puerto Rico. I am eating one right know.

            1. I only knew the chocolate-covered cherry liqueur version.

                Yah, the hazelnut version has a different name in Germany (Ferrero Küsschen).
