searching for non-alcoholic chocolates

I am looking for non alcoholic chocolates (lindt, frey, ...) in MIGROS and COOP. Right now I know that kirsch contains alcohol however it seems that there are some other ingredients which contain alcohol. Some boxes which has different shape chocolates, explicitly state alcoholic items.

My question is, what are the common alcoholic ingredients that I should take care?

Re: searching for non-alcoholic chocolates

Kirsch, Williams, brandy, cognac, whisky, rum.

Probably some others.

Re: searching for non-alcoholic chocolates

If you look at the Migros online shop, the products have the ingredients listed http://www.migros-shop.de/Produkte/Schokolade/c/6 and also alcohol, if present, for example http://www.migros-shop.de/Produkte/S...p/101732610000


Chocolates which contain alcohol are normally described as liquers or are named after the alcohol these contain (Kirsch, Williams, Grappa etc.)
Here is an example from Frey. Click on Food Facts and you see what it contains . . .

Migros doesn't sell alcohol.

Kirsch doesn't contain alcohol .... kirsch is alcohol (despite also meaning cherry).

Re: searching for non-alcoholic chocolates

A week ago I bout a "Lindt connaisseurs" from COOP which now I see contains "marc de champagne" and "cognac". Still I have not opened it and the outer plastic and the price (with the COOP label) still exist. Is it possible to change that? Do they accept?

You can try.
They don't say "No" explicitly on their website:
http://www.migros.ch/de/services/kun...garantien.html

E.g. Sprüngli and Teuscher sell a large selection of highest-quality non-alcolholic chocolates - you just have to ask for ones without alcohol.
They sell a lot to people from the Middle East, so they know the drill.
Most of the cheaper "collections" from Migros and Coop do contain a small number of chocolates with alcohol - I don't know why that is, because IMO they don't taste that good anyway (but maybe that's the point: they have to get rid of them somehow...)

The ones from the above two sources are also usually very fresh and haven't been sitting in a box for weeks. They are perfect "special" gifts, if the person who receives them doesn't mind you spending so much money "only" on chocolates.
