A sample was included with your request. The subject merchandise is stated to contain 46 percent sugar, 20 percent hazelnuts, 15 percent cocoa mass, 10 percent vegetable fat, 5 percent cocoa butter and 2 percent whey powder. The product will be imported in 2 kilogram blocks and used to produce and fill pralines, cakes etc.

The applicable subheading for the CP68E Gianduja Dark will be 1806.32.4098, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for chocolate and other food preparations containing cocoa: other, in blocks, slabs or bars...other...other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
