I love everything about Ritter Sport chocolate. I love that it’s a family-owned business since 1912. I love the cheerful colors of the wrappings. I love the squareness of the bars. I love that there are so many unique flavors – Butter Biscuit, Yogurt, Milk Chocolate with Strawberry Creme – and regular Dark and Milk chocolate, too. Most of all, I seriously love the taste of this chocolate. It’s all incredibly good! I’m talking, “I want to try every variety ever made and will hunt for them across the globe”, obsessively good.
Now I know what I was missing when I walked right by those funny-named, uniquely-squared, chocolate bars. I think the name Ritter Sport threw me off; what did “sport” have to do with chocolate? Well, back in 1932, Mrs Ritter conjured up the idea that their chocolate bars should fit perfectly in a sport jacket, be the same weight as rectangular chocolate bars, and not break. Voila – the square Ritter Sport bar! The coolest and unexpected thing about these bars is the Snap Open Pack – totally unlike anything else I’ve ever seen in a chocolate bar.
The quality of this chocolate blew my mind! Every flavor was fantastic! I don’t even like hazelnuts, but I actually happily ate some of the Whole Hazelnut Milk and Dark Chocolate bars. Even the nuts were perfect – whole, fresh, and plentiful. Ridiculously good. Dangerously good. WOW! My favorites are the Milk Chocolate with Strawberry Creme (to die for), Milk Chocolate with Butter Biscuit (a butter cookie hidden in chocolate? Brilliant!), and the super smooth Alpine Milk Chocolate (this stuff’s going on my special occasion list for eternity).
