Merci (French for "thank you") is a brand of chocolate candy manufactured by the German company August Storck. Merci is manufactured as bars of differently flavored chocolate, such as plain milk chocolate, coffee and cream, hazelnut-almond, hazelnut crème, marzipan, praline-cream, dark cream and dark mousse. Each flavor has its own individual color, to distinguish it from the other flavors in the box. The chocolate is sold in over 70 countries.
A survey conducted by Merci and The Emily Post Institute showing that most Americans both do not think they say 'thank you' enough and feel bothered when they themselves are not thanked served as the inspiration for National Thank You Day, established in 2007 in the United States.
