Yes, you can take these things into Shanghai. As I know, there is no limitation about chocolates and packed food. Just fill in the actual information when declaring customs.
For alcohol, if it is over 12 degrees, it is allowed to take into 2 bottles (at most 1.5 litres) tax free.

Generally, it is ruled that the total value of these things should be within CNY5,000, or you need to pay tax.
