Despite the fact that the majority of my blog posts feature recipes or travel writing, my most popular post by a wide margin is my review of Ritter Sport flavors available in the U.S. In the vein of giving the people what they want, here's my latest Ritter Sport review: a rundown of the new-to-me flavors I picked up on my recent trip to Hamburg. As in previous posts, the bars are rated as GET IT, YOUR CALL, or SKIP IT.
Karamell-Mousse: milk chocolate filled with a whipped caramel mousse and lightly salted almond pieces, divided into 9 pieces instead of the usual 16. Despite the lightness of the mousse, the filling has a robust caramel flavor. The almond pieces provide a nice bit of crunch with a hint of salt—I would have appreciated more of them. GET IT. (This flavor is available in the U.S. as Caramel Mousse)
Schoko-Brownie: milk chocolate filled with brownie pieces, chocolate flakes, and dark cocoa creme; 2017 flavor of the year. This flavor is a chocolate lover's dream come true, with a rich chocolate filling that really is evocative of a double chocolate brownie. GET IT.
Pink Grapefruit: white chocolate filled with grapefruit yogurt creme, crispy rice bits, and grapefruit crisps; 2017 summer flavor. Since the white chocolate is so mild, the only flavor note is the bright tanginess of the grapefruit. I enjoyed the first few squares, but eating a whole bar was just too much grapefruit for me—a pairing with dark chocolate would offer more balance. YOUR CALL.
Brombeer Joghurt: milk chocolate filled with blackberry yogurt and crispy rice bits. This one is a 2017 summer flavor (as well as a 2016 summer flavor covered in a previous review). The tart blackberry yogurt filling contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the milk chocolate, and the crispy rice bits add an appealing layer of texture. GET IT.
