Ritter Sport Olympia

August 25th, 2010 by Rosa

I bought this Ritter Sport Olympia bar when I was in Italy. It’s been fairly recently featured on Candy Blog and Jim’s Chocolate Mission, so I thought I’d throw my two cents.

The wrapper notes that it contains “joghurt, honig, nuss, and traubenzucker”.

What, that’s not immediately self-explanatory? Thankfully, Cybele has revealed that it’s yogurt, honey, hazelnut, and grape sugar. I’ll admit – the grape sugar component still leaves me confused.

The milk chocolate coating was sweet and thick with a slightly sour tang that was probably helped along by the yogurt.

The filling was chock full of tiny bits of hazelnuts and what I initially thought was toffee. After reading the translation of the components, I think the toffee was actually bits of honeycomb crisps.

The nuts and crisps were similarly sized and colored. They made the bar as a whole sweet and interesting.

The yogurt brought a seriously sour tang that added to the richness of the bar. I love yogurt in my chocolate, and I enjoyed this Olympia quite a bit.

One caveat: it was maybe a tad too busy. I could’ve been just as happy, if not happier, without the hazelnuts. Sometimes simpler can be better. Just ask Coco Chanel! Still, it was a uniquely fun and tasty mix. An OM.

    I’ve got to give this a shot. I love both the joghurt and knusperflake. If I can’t find it; I’m combining the minis.

    I have had an Olympia Bar and it was delicious! The only thing missing from this amazing mixture is some sort of toffee.

    don’t be confused by grape sugar.
    The commonly used name is dextrose which sounds a lot less threatening, doesn’t it?

    “Traubenzucker” aka Grape Sugar is indeed Dextrose. In Germany, companies like to add this to give their foods a story or healthy feel. 🙂
