Dear Mr. McFarlane:

In your letter dated May 28, 2002, on behalf of La Siembra Cooperative, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples and information were submitted with your initial request dated April 15, 2002. The “Cocoa Camino Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate” and the “Cocoa Camino Fat Free Hot Chocolate” are stated to contain various proportions of cocoa, skim milk power, whey powder, sugar, salt vanilla and cellulose gum. The products will be imported packaged for retail sale in 12 ounce cardboard canisters. The products are used by mixing them with water or milk.

The applicable subheading for the “Cocoa Camino Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate” and the “Cocoa Camino Fat Free Hot Chocolate”, if imported in quantities that fall within the limits described in additional U.S. note 8 to chapter 17, will be 1806.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTS), which provides for Chocolate and other food preparations containing cocoa: Other: Other: Other: Other: Articles containing over 10 percent by dry weight of sugar described in additional U.S. note 3 to chapter 17: Described in additional U.S. note 8 to chapter 17 and entered pursuant to its provisions. The general rate of duty will be 3.5 percent ad valorem. If the quantitative limits of additional U.S. note 8 to chapter 17 have been reached, the product will be classified in subheading 1806.90.5900, HTS, and dutiable at the rate of 37.2 cents per kilogram plus 6 percent ad valorem

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