A Garoto chocolate

Chocolates Garoto S.A. is a Brazilian chocolate manufacturer. Its headquarters are located in Vila Velha, Espírito Santo. The company was founded in 1929 by German immigrant Heinrich Meyerfreund. First Garoto started as a small producer of chocolates, today, it is one of Brazil's largest manufacturers of chocolate. It exports its chocolate to various countries around the world, including the United States. Currently, Garoto's chocolate candy bars are distributed by a variety of distributors. Walgreens had sold Garoto's candies under the brand name of Regal Dynasty, but has recently switched to a Polish supplier.

According to the official website (see link below), it was acquired in 2002 by Nestlé of Switzerland but continues operating separately.
