Industry News: merci® Chocolates Encourages Everyday Thankfulness And Gratitude


New National Campaign, "merci Asks" Launches Today

CHICAGO, Nov. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- merci® Chocolates launched a new national campaign today called "merci Asks" as part of its mission to inspire more genuine, everyday thank yous. Rooted in consumer insights, the man on the street style campaign showcases heartfelt 'thank you' messages to real people  who deserve a thoughtful expression of gratitude.

"Who would you like to thank today?" That is the question merci is posing to consumers. The thoughtful collection of fine European chocolates is seeking to make an impact across broadcast, social and digital communications by offering consumers a platform to express their gratitude and inspiring them with ways to show it, as well.

"Now more than ever, the world could use a little more gratitude, and at merci we believe in the power of the simple, everyday thank you," said Kelly Cook, Vice President of Marketing, Storck US. "From friends and parents to coaches and co-workers, the patchwork of people that make an impact on our everyday lives is made up of individuals that each deserve to be celebrated."

Based on consumer insights, the campaign is designed to inspire more people to say thank you more often. A 2016 gratitude survey found that nearly 63% of Americans say they don't show appreciation because they simply forget, or their mind is focused on other things. So, merci is on a mission to remind and inspire Americans to share more heartfelt gratitude each and every day.

Americans nationwide are encouraged to join the conversation on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #merciAsks and sharing who they want to thank today.

Today, people all over the world say "thank you" with merci, the thoughtful collection of European chocolates. Known as Europe's famous gift-giving chocolate, each slim, stylish box contains eight unique individually wrapped flavors and is available in milk chocolate and assorted varieties. With a name that literally means "thank you," merci is founded on the idea that simple expressions of heartfelt gratitude can make a big impact within our daily lives.

The full television commercial can be seen here. For more information, visit our website www.merci.us and follow merci on Facebook at merci US or Instagram at mercichocolates for more gratitude inspiration.

merci Chocolates are available in grocery stores and retailers nationwide.

Cereal Spotlight: Kellogg’s® Reaches New Level Of Gr-r-reatness With Chocolate Frosted Flakes


Kellogg's delivers on fan demands with the release of its latest Frosted Flakes flavor

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® family just got even gr-r-reater with the release of new Kellogg's® Chocolate Frosted Flakes™. Hitting shelves nationwide this November, the new cereal recipe was made from scratch to deliver a Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® flavor the brand knew U.S. fans would eat-up

"We stay close to our fans to make sure we are delivering the cereal experiences they want most, which is what resulted in the delicious flavor of Cinnamon Frosted Flakes™ launched last year" said Brad Schwan, Kellogg's senior director of morning food marketing. "So, when we found out chocolate was the next most requested flavor, we set to work right away."

To make sure its new chocolate flavor met expectations, Kellogg's let fans weigh-in at nearly every step of the development process to create new Chocolate Frosted Flakes by testing how different cocoas interacted with the cereal flake and the milk left at the bottom of the bowl.

Together, Fans and Kellogg's created something gr-r-reat. They paired golden, toasted flakes with a rich, roasted cocoa frosting to deliver a crunchy, delicious chocolatey experience from the first bite to the final, sweet satisfying sip of leftover milk.

This chocolatey sensation will hit all major retailers and grocery stores where breakfast foods are sold in November with a suggested retail price between $4.69 and $5.79.

For more information about Chocolate Frosted Flakes, fans can visit facebook.com/frostedflakes. You can also stay in the loop with everything Tony by following him at @RealTonyTiger. Be sure to grab a spoon and dig in.

Snack Spotlight: SNICKERS® Unveils Three New Limited Edition Flavors to Satisfy Hunger


SNICKERS® Espresso, Fiery and Salty & Sweet Hit Shelves June 2018 to Help Fans Get Their Flavor Back

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SNICKERS® announced that the brand will debut three new limited edition flavors – Espresso, Fiery and Salty & Sweet –  all at the same time, a first for the brand. The new flavors will join the popular "Hunger Bar" campaign and have everything fans love about SNICKERS® – peanuts and caramel covered in milk chocolate, now with a bold new flavor-infused nougat – espresso, hot pepper or salted caramel-flavor.

When you're hungry, you lose your flavor – what makes you, you. Espresso, Fiery, and Salty & Sweet Hunger Bars are filled with flavors that can help fans solve their specific hunger symptom. Each Hunger Bar will feature a hunger symptom on the outside of the packaging that the flavor can directly solve:

  • Espresso = Irritable
  • Fiery = Wimpy
  • Salty & Sweet = Indecisive

"SNICKERS® knows that when you're hungry, you lose your flavor and turn into your less desirable self," said Michael Italia, Senior Brand Manager, SNICKERS® Brand. "Our new flavors paired with hunger symptoms provide an extended dimension to show how SNICKERS® ultimately satisfies when hunger strikes."

SNICKERS® fans will be able to find the limited edition flavored Hunger Bars nationwide at local food, mass, convenience, and drug stores beginning June 2018. SNICKERS® plans to support the launch through a variety of 360 marketing tactics including in-store promotions, consumer activations, and social media.

TCHO Maker's Series micro batch no.1, Golden Milk Chocolate bar, 45%. (PRNewsfoto/TCHO Chocolate)

Chocolate Spotlight: Award-winning Chocolate Maker, TCHO, Launches New Micro-Batch Series



BERKELEY, Calif., July 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TCHO Chocolate (pronounced "cho"), the award-winning San Francisco Bay Area chocolate maker, has announced a new micro-batch offering dubbed TCHO Maker's Series.  Launching later this month, Maker's Series batches will be limited to approximately 500 bars, and will be exclusively available online and at TCHO's private tour and store location in Berkeley, California (due to open for private tours in the Fall).  The company will release a new Maker's Series micro-batch six times per year and says it will soon be available as a subscription, "with additional perks," similar to a high-end wine club.

The inspiration behind the Maker's Series is to explore and co-create new and unique chocolate concepts with and for TCHO fans.  Chief Chocolate Maker, Brad Kintzer, describes the Maker's Series as "a space where we can interact with our fans to exchange totally new chocolate ideas—however curious and rare— and then bring them to life on a small scale for us all to enjoy." Ari Morimoto, TCHO's Director of Marketing, adds, "the American consumer base is awakening to the idea of chocolate being more than candy and is demanding a more sophisticated product.  Similar to what we have seen in coffee, wine, beer and cheese, the diversity of chocolate offerings has exploded."

The company's first bar in the new Maker's Series is the Golden Milk bar, based on the recently popularized Ayurvedic drink of the same name.  The bar showcases spices and ingredients such as turmeric, crystallized ginger, cardamom, and black pepper in a 45% cacao content dark milk chocolate.  The Golden Milk bar and 6 other TCHO bars, were awarded medals at the International Chocolate Awards last month.

The TCHO Maker's Series limited run of Golden Milk will be available for pre-order on July 20th and available for shipment starting Monday July 24th at www.TCHO.com.
