Chocolate letters are a form of candy associated with the Dutch holiday of Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas). Celebrants of the Sinterklaas celebration are traditionally given their initials made out of chocolate. Various sizes, types and flavours are available.
In order to use the same amount of chocolate for each letter the manufacturer varies the thickness of the letter. This way one letter is not favoured over another, for example the W, or the M over the I or the J.
