They are said to consist of sugar, cocoa butter, anhydrous milk fat, lactose, lecithin, vanillin, enriched flour, cocoa, vegetable oil, high fructose corn syrup, salt, and flavors.

The applicable tariff provision for the “Cookies’n’Crème” candy bars will be 1806.32.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for Chocolate and other food preparations containing cocoa: Other, in blocks, slabs or bars: Not filled: Other: Other.
