EuropeanDeli.com President Terri Nelson founded MostlyChocolate.com with her husband, Peter Nelson, in the 1990s. After her husband passed away in 2010, Nelson sold the business to her brother, Bob Valois, who operated the chocolate importer until last month.
“When my brother decided he wanted to pursue other ventures, it felt only natural to bring the MostlyChocolate.com brand home,” says Nelson. “Together, the companies will reach a larger audience with a continued commitment to bringing the finest specialty foods to consumers in the United States.”
EuropeanDeli.com is a leading importer of specialties from Germany and throughout Europe, providing items, which are hard to find at local markets, available to consumers who seek the foods they enjoyed while living and traveling in Europe.
Under Nelson’s ownership, EuropeanDeli.com and MostlyChocolate.com will now be the largest importer of Lebkuchen Schmidt in the United States. In addition, the online retailer will offer traditional holiday specialties from Asbach Uralt Brandy Chocolates, Reber Chocolate Specialties, Niederegger, Underberg, Possmann, and Gerstacker from Germany. They will also feature delicacies from Italy, Denmark, Scotland, the United Kingdom, France and selected specialty items from the United States.
EuropeanDeli.com and MostlyChocolate.com offer custom services, such as gift wrapping and handwritten greeting cards. Both English and German speaking customer service representatives are available to handle orders and answer questions.
Terri Nelson has more than 25 years in the gourmet food and specialty liquor business. Prior to EuropeanDeli.com and MostlyChocolate.com, Nelson worked side-by-side with her husband Peter Nelson at Niche Import Co., which he founded in 1992, managing the specialty food business. She is also the proprietor of Phoenix Wine and Spirits, importers of specialty wines and spirits. Nelson lives in Madison, NJ and when not working enjoys spending time with her four-year-old granddaughter, Lucy, and spending time at the beach.
