From VfD:

This seems to be an Italian advertisement for a particular brand of chocolate covered cherries. (Though my Italian is execrable these days, I don't think I'm all that far off...). Advertisement, not encyclopedic. - Kenwarren 04:31, Jul 24, 2004 (UTC)

  • My Italian is non-existent, but a Babelfish translation leads me to a similar conclusion. Delete ad - do not translate, do not send to Italian Wikipedia (unless I'm horribly wrong about the advertising content). -- Cyrius| 04:54, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • I checked Babelfish, as well. Agree with Cyrius. Do not translate. Simply Delete. SWAdair | Talk 04:57, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • this is a widely marketed brand in Europe and is probably notable in the same way say Pringles is. Delete as per usual procedure for non-English if no-one can make anything out of it though. Ianb 08:02, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • delete: I have translated (see page). Its a very obvious ad, and a very cringe making one at that. Giano 14:07, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC) comment moved from main vfd page. Rossami
  • Keep (and move back to Cleanup). Delete. Correct spelling is "Mon Chéri". Famous brand name of one of Ferrero's confectioneries. Did a stub under that name. --Palapala 17:14, 2004 Jul 24 (UTC)
  • This is just an ad. Delete it. If someone wants to write a serious article on this chocolate one day, they may; but this just needs deleting. — Chameleon Main/Talk/Images 11:35, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • I don't see any article on one specific brand of one specific type of confection ever being encyclopedic, unless the entire type of confection were usually referred to by the name of the brand (think Kleenex brand facial tissues). I've also listed Mon Chéri for deletion for that reason. - Kenwarren 18:57, Jul 24, 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirect to Mon Chéri. If that article is deleted (but I'll be voting keep) then this becomes a redirect for deletion. Andrewa 19:20, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • They are extremely popular, and do occasinally turn up with pop-cultural references... delete & redirect to Mon Chéri. -FZ 13:52, 26 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • I have taken the liberty of redirecting to the correct spelling - Mon Chéri. Keep harmless redirect. Rossami 22:51, 26 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Still say delete. It is a sweet, not even marketed world-wide. Are we going to have pages appearing and disappearing every time a company commercially launches or removes a product from the market?Giano 08:00, 27 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Why would removing a product from the market result in its disappearance? Instead would the page not just say "This product ceased to be sold in 2005" or similar? I think brands should stay if people can provide relevant information about them that amounts to more than a simple ad.nach0king 22:57, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
