Is ‘storck merci’ choclates made in germany halal?

Question:

Asalamoalaykum,

I’m explaining my query futher that i sent you about the chocolates. I want to know whether ‘storck merci’ choclates made in germany is halal? My muslim friend gifted me with a box I had some chcolate then I realised that I should still make sure if its Halal, I googled it and some people said it contains whey powder that is usually extracted from haram means (animal), in the ingrdients they did not  mention whether the whey is from vegetable so their is doubt if the chocolate is halal or not. Will I be sinful for eating it?

Also I dont know if my friend eats the chocolate herself or not, I dont want her to be offended, do you think I should tell her?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
