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┬ábloggess 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….

Ritter Sport Olympia

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,…

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…

Other Mini Ritter Sport Round-up – Part I

Last week, I did a 2-part (I and II) round-up of Schokowurfel, a set of 7 tiny Ritter Sports that I bought in Europe. Today and Friday, I’ll review the second set of somewhat larger mini Ritter Sport chocolates that I purchased on the same trip. Unlike the single-squared Schokowurfel, these mini Ritter Sports were…

Mini Ritter Sport Round-up – Part II

Here’s the continuation of Monday’s review of Ritter Sport’s Schokowurfel. Monday, I reviewed the Creme Coco, the Mandel Split, and the Caramel Crisp. Today, I’ll review the rest of the set: Crocant, Cappuccino, and Edelnugat. I’m not exactly sure what Crocant means in German, but the onomatopoeia made me think of crunchiness. And I was…

Mini Ritter Sport Round-up – Part I

My May trip to Italy meant a layover in Frankfurt, which in turn meant that I got to buy lots of Duty Free Ritter Sport. In fact, I managed to leave Europe with not one but two sets of mini Ritter Sport assortments. The below Schokowurfel set had 6 varieties (Sorten?): Creme Coco, Mandel Split,…

Ritter Sport Summer 2010 – Stracciatella

This is the last of Ritter Sports’ 2010 summer flavors that I picked up in Europe. The other two, Peach-Passionfruit Yogurt and Wildberry Yogurt, were reviewed earlier in the week. Stracciatella is a flavor of Italian gelato that’s analogous to chocolate chip ice cream. I have to admit I didn’t try stracciatella gelato while I…
