    Verkade Dutch Chocolate

    Greetings,

    I am currently in a marketing class and we have to pick a country that sells chocolate candy bars. I picked Aruba!
    I have been several times and never purchased candy while on the Island. Thought it would be a fun place to pick.

    Hoping to get some feedback from some chocolate fans.

    Question 1 - Do you know how much Verkade dutch chocolate candy bar sells for in the supermarket, and hotels? AFL price/ US price

    Question 2 - How much would a Snickers bar, Hershey, or Kit Kat ect..candy bar cost? AFL price/ US price

    Are there any other types of popular non U.S. chocolate candy bars sold in Aruba?

    Thanks!

    Hi Jacki

    Thanks for replying! Appreciate it. I have to turn in my paper this week. I thought I could go online to Ling & Sons/ SuperFoods and find the prices but no luck.

    I thought of the forum today, not sure why I didn't think of it prior.

    I will be in Aruba in Aug :-) Counting down!!!

    Have fun on your trip!

    We purchase Verkade chocolate bars at the airport before heading home I'm sorry I can't help with the pricing too much. I believe they were in the realm of $2 a bar (US). I can't remember the last time I purchased a candy bar at home!

    using SKYPE it could be a real cheap call (pennies) to Lings to see if customer service would give you the answer.

    i also directed this thread to a couple of folks that are aruban or live full time in aruba, hoping they have an answer for you.

    our local Aldis has been carrying Verdake bars lately.

    every time we walk past them we are tempted.

    yup

    there are no silly questions.
    skype will have you add some $ onto your new skype account. (maybe $5 or less)

    try emailing Lings first
