Ritter Sport Chocolate Bars!
- Becca Porter
So I've recently discovered these. They are the smoothest, most velvety piece of chocolate I have ever tasted. I am addicted to them. I searched and saw that they have been discussed a couple of times but I thought I'd mention them to anyone who hadn't heard about them. Now let me get back to mine!
Also love these. Way better than your average candy bar, and they have ingredients like hazelnuts, which most American mass-marketed chocolates don't have.
In addition to Marzipan, I suggest the Nougat.
Cost Plus/World Market has these in the DC area, as does TJ. In a pinch, you can order them on line from germandeli.com, but I think you have to spend a minimum dollar amount.
If ever you're in Germany (or know someone who's going), they retail over there for less than a Euro a piece -- that's no more than a dollar a bar. Available in every supermarket and the confection section of every department store.
The chocolate covered biscuit one is ultra creamy, smooth, and soooo good. We keep some here in the office for when we get grouchy. An excellent cure.
I love them too -- I almost always get marzipan or the hazelnut. WHOLE hazelnuts in smooth milk chocolate. Mr. Smith, who claims to not like nuts in his chocolate (he is purist) inhaled half of mine the other day appreciatively.
Anybody tried the one that's filled with the "energy-filled center of dextrose, honey, and ..." something else I can't remember? I've eyed, it but I haven't bought one yet. I'd love to hear if someone's tried them.
Also, anyone tried the cappucino flavor?
I'm pregnant and have my occasional chocolate rampages -- a half a Ritter sport bar is enough to usually satisfy me for a couple of days, they are so good (trying not to OD on sugar, you know....)
Funny, I've never checked the price. I always just throw one in my cart :)
