Chocolate

To our valued customers-

Merckens Chocolate


ABC has featured Merckens Chocolate for over 40 years and are are currently experiencing a shortage. We are doing our best at this time to have a sufficient supply for your holiday needs.  

The Merckens company (ADM Chocolate) was purchased by the Cargill company in 2014. Cargill produces the Peters brand of chocolate. In 2015, Cargill closed one of Merckens two plants to consolidate production. The current plants are unable to keep up with production for the 2016 holiday season. All of our suppliers have had a limited supply, which means we have a limited supply as well.

We are offering Clasen Alpine chocolate as an alternative to the Merckens brand which is still unavailable. We believe you will find it equal or superior to Merckens. We also have a supply of Peters Chocolate.

As soon as Merckens is again available, we will continue to stock it. Thank you for your understanding.
