I spent last weekend in Seattle for a synchronized swimming meet, and though I didn’t get to do another chocolate crawl of the city, I did get to coach one very awesome young lady. Not just awesome because she made it to this NATIONAL meet after placing first in the free and technical categories at our regional meet, but also because she frequently gives me chocolate.
Including this variety pack of Ritter Sport chocolate bars.
My swimmers love me.
And do you know what I love about this chocolate? It’s accessible. Sure, I love writing about Domori and the like, but not everybody can get that. But Ritter Sport? You can get most of their bars at Target, so my review is probably useful to more people. Especially a review of this 30% cocoa milk chocolate, which is a standard offering at stores that carry Ritter Sport.The bar has an aroma of dairy and caramel, and a creamy, smooth melt to go along with the dairy.
And of course, there’s a dairy flavor, along with a vanilla after taste that trends just a bit artificial. The texture is superb, but the flavor could use some work.
There are better milk chocolates out there. Sure. But better milk chocolate at Target or CVS? I doubt it.
Have you tried Ritter Sport chocolate? Where did you get it?
