We open on an attractive young woman moving quickly through a quaint town square, when her attention is caught by a window display of chocolates. As she approaches the window, her reflection changes to that of herself as a little girl and, as the camera moves into the shop’s interior, the woman herself is transformed into her girlhood self. With a friendly smile, a kindly shopkeeper beckons the girl into the store and she passes into a timeless confectionery wonderland. Inside, diligent artisans loving craft candied apples, scrumptious caramels and other sweets for which Werthers is famous. The shopkeeper presents the awe-struck young girl with a bite-sized candy that she pops into her mouth, transporting her into a state of delectably sweetened bliss. We match cut back to the grown woman, dreamily enjoying her newly purchased bag of caramels outside the shop. As she walks away contentedly, the tagline “What comfort tastes like,” appears superimposed over the empty frame of the idyllic Werther’s shop.
