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 – Coconut

Today is the 4th of 4 new Ritter Sports that I got as free samples from Euro-American Brands at Sweets and Snacks. The Coconut was described on the wrapper as “with tropical coconut flakes in a coconut and milk filling.” This was a standard 16-squared filled Ritter – a milk chocolate shell with a textured white…

Ritter Sport – Fine Extra Dark Chocolate 73%

Here’s the 3rd of 4 new Ritter Sport samples from Euro-American Brands that I got at Sweets and Snacks. Monday’s Cocoa Mousse broke the mold by featuring 9 squares instead of 16. This Fine Extra Dark Chocolate 73% does the same… but in the opposite direction. It features a whopping 36 itty-bitty squares, each stamped…

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 – Yogurt

The Ritter Sport Yogurt is an elusive chocolate bar. Its more common brethren, like Milk Chocolate with Cornflakes or Dark Chocolate with Whole Hazelnuts, are easily found in many major grocery stores in the U.S., but I’ve only ever seen the Yogurt in the wild in specialty fine food stores, random NYC bodegas, or Europe….

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…
