It’s Ritter Time again!
This one however, is a little different, being solid dark chocolate. From the word “Fondente” on the wrapper, I had half expected it to have soft centre, and found myself slightly miffed that it didn’t.
In fact, in a fit of disappointment, I used Google to translate the word fondente. You can imagine my surprise when Google came back and told me that “fondente” was German for “Duck Rear”.
Now I was starting to worry about what exactly was in the bar and checked the ingredients. No mention of ducks. Or any other avarian posterias.
Satisfied that Google was lying to me, I relaxed and started enjoying the chocolate. This is 50% cocoa solids, so it’s not as bitter as the Green & Black’s Dark 70% I reviewed a while back. It has none of that aftertaste you sometimes get with dark chocolate, and is very smooth.
It’s also very moreish. I’d polished off the whole bar in five minutes – and I wanted more. And that’s my only real complaint about this bar. There’s just not enough of it.
So, if anyone from Ritter happens to be reading this, I have a suggestion. Instead of making your chocolate bars in 100g squares, you should make them in 1000g cubes… and then send them all to me.
