So my reaction on finding this new addition to the range was mixture of excitement and trepidation. It sounds delicious.. but could it possibly live up to the standards set by it’s siblings?
I needn’t have worried.
Ritter Sport Chocolate Crème is another 100g square of delicious milk chocolate divided into chunks. Each chunk is filled with a thick cocoa creme.
Just like the Cappuccino variety, the first thing you notice when you open this is the aroma… or “smell”, as we common folk say. It smells like a delicious hot chocolate. And it screams “Eat me now!” (Not literally, obviously, although I think the whole talking chocolate idea has distinct possibilities.)
The chocolate creme is thicker than I had expected, but it tastes wonderful. For some reason it took me back to my childhood, but I can’t put my finger on exactly why. As far as I’m away I wasn’t attacked by a chocolate monster when I was a child.
Looking at the ingredients, the filling appears to be made of a hazelnut paste, although I can’t really detect any nuttiness. It has that comforting hot chocolate taste and melts in the mouth satisfyingly. Perfect comfort food for cold winter nights.
Go get some.
