Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramelised Almond

I bought this Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramelised Almond at Cost Plus World Market, along with last Friday’s Caramel-Orange. I was lucky to nab the last one of these that was on the shelf! This solid milk chocolate bar was generously embedded with bits of caramelized almonds. Those nuts brought a slightly crystallized crunch to…

Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramel-Orange

I’ve raved before about how Cost Plus World Market is a fantastic resource for new and unusual candies. I recently visited and found two Winter Edition Ritter Sports by accident – they were shelved far away from the regular Ritter Sports and other chocolates. In fact, they weren’t really shelved at all; I found them…

Ritter Sport – Milk Chocolate with Cocoa Mousse

Last Friday, I reviewed the Limited Edition Ritter Sport Raspberry and Cranberry Yogurt, one of the 4 Ritter Sport samples that I got from Euro-American Brands at Sweets and Snacks. This week, I’ll cover the other three, for a delicious Ritter Sporty week! First up, the Milk Chocolate with Cocoa Mousse, a new Ritter bar…

Guest post: Ritter Sport à la Crema Catalana

Here’s another guest post from ex-pat friend Neil! ~Rosa Late on a Friday night at a German supermarket, I discovered a new Ritter Sport flavor I hadn’t even seen advertised yet: the Ritter Sport à la Crema Catalana. I spied something like a crème brûlée on the package and my heart skipped a beat. I bought…

Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Peppermint

Now that Halloween is over, winter holiday chocolate should be making its way onto store shelves. I believe Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Peppermint is sold year-round in Europe (any European readers want to weigh in?), but here in the U.S. it’s a limited edition for winter. Mine was a free sample from Sweets and…

Ritter Amarena Kirsch

This Ritter Sport Amarena Kirsch is a European limited edition summer flavor from last year, apparently. I was lucky enough to get a free sample of one from the Gourmet Grand Dame at Sweets and Snacks. Kirsch is cherry, and I think Amarena Kirsch is a flavor of ice cream that you can get in…

Ritter Sport – Rum Raisin and Nuts

This Ritter Sport Rum Raisin and Nuts was one of the most exciting samples that I brought back from Sweets and Snacks. According to the Gourmet Grand Dame bloggess of the company that imports Ritter Sports to the U.S., Alfred Ritter didn’t want to export this flavor of Ritter because the rum flavor dissipates if it…

Ritter Sport Ciocco-Duo

Here’s another Ritter Sport bar that I picked up in Europe: the Ciocco-Duo. Aka chocolate duo (my personal guessed-at translation, thank you very much). The wrapper also claims, “delizioso cioccolato al latte extra e squisito cioccolato bianco.” My guess at that translation? Delicious extra milk chocolate and exquisite white chocolate. But that’s just a guess….

Other Mini Ritter Sport Round-up – Part II

Today’s review is a continuation of Wednesday’s review of the second set of mini Ritter Sport bars that I bought in Italy. To recap, the set of seven contained Marzipan, Knusperkeks (butter biscuit), Knusperflakes (cornflakes), Vollmilch 30% Kakao (milk chocolate, 30% cacao), Joghurt (yogurt), Haselnuss (hazelnut), and Nugat (nougat). I’ll be reviewing the final two…
