Here’s yet another Ritter Sport bar to wrap up the week. I saved my favorite for last, the Dark Chocolate with Marzipan.
The bar promises that it’s “made with 100% finest marzipan”. With a claim so lofty, they’d better deliver!
I do love the neat 4X4 square of Ritter Sport bars. It looks tidy and symmetrical, which I find quite charming.
The bar smells strongly of cherries, which was surprising. I wish I’d gotten a look at the ingredients list before my friends devoured the bar and tossed the wrapper.
The marzipan filling was thick and pasty. It tasted lightly nutty, a mix of almond extract and cherry cordial notes.
The marzipan was in perfect proportion with the dark chocolate. The chocolate itself was snappy and smooth and balances just wonderfully with the taste and texture of the marzipan.
An OMG for a bar that I will definitely buy again. My original is long gone because I shared it with friends. I brought it to lunch, having broken off a row and saved it for myself for later. Had I known how delicious it would be, I don’t know if I would have been generous enough to share it.
