Ritter Chocolate Bars

  • a

Have found my new love this past weekend! Read about these chocolate bars a while back on Chowhound. I finally bought a Chocolate w/ Almond bar at Target for $1.49. It was money well spent. The chocolate was tasty and it had WHOLE almonds and plenty of them in it. Is it just me or do European chocolate bars just seem tastier? Ritter Bars rock! (Toberlorone too!)

  1. I (heart) Ritter Milk chocolate with biscuit! Their chocolate so so smooth, and they pour it over a yummy biscuit/cookie -- it's so good!

      Second that. I buy ONE whenever I make a TJ's run--otherwise I'd be snarfing them down like crazy.

    2. A good substitute for Lindt, whose shops no longer carry a whole-almond bar--just nasty, little hard almond bits.

      1. I will always have a soft spot for the marzipan w/ dark chocolate, reminds me of grad school when the German students would bring them from home. I don't know if I love them, or love the memory.

        1. I have a real soft spot in my heart for Ritter Sport bars with Yogurt--love that tangy filling in between the chocolate. The hazelnut is great, too!

          1. I like the Knusperkeks (cornflakes). You can also get minis (2x2) in a variety pack, or individually wrapped "Schokow├╝rfel". I've also seen GIANT bars (8x8, or 10x10, not sure, in a limited range of flavors). Check out the nice animations on their website!

              I also love the Ritters with cornflakes.........................weird combo but it totally works.

                Oh god, the cornflake ones are the best. I cannot keep them around without eating the whole damn bar immediately.

                  see now I am going to have to try this one. I agree it sounds quite bizarre -cornflakes of all things. By the way, my candy bar was gone by the time I got in my car in the parking lot. I am ashamed- but I will use the excuse of being very pregnant and I did share w/ my husband. It sure was tastier than a Hersheys w/almonds.

                when I was traveling on business in Germany I bought all the Ritter varieties and a bunch of other chocolates.

                in a "Milke" variety pack they had a bag of chocolate-covered cornflakes and nuts in small clusters. They were great and addictive. Sadly I couldn't find them outside of the variety packs nor anything similar back stateside.
