It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed anything from Ritter Sport, but this little 100g square was just begging to be eaten – and who am I to refuse anthropomorphic chocolate?
Now I’m not usually a fan of marzipan. I think the last time I had it would have been in a Christmas cake 4 or 5 years ago. It’s just a bit too sweet and rich for me.
And that’s pretty much the case with Ritter Sport Marzipan too. The 44% “plain” chocolate it’s wrapped in does quite a good job of taking away some of that sweetness, but it’s just not quite enough.
The marzipan itself is also a bit drier and crumblier than I’m used to. It’s definitely marzipan, but it’s not quite like the stuff I remember from my childhood. I think I’d have preferred it if it was a bit softer and chewier.
But whether you’re going to like this or not is really going to come down to whether you’re a fan of marzipan. I know many people who can’t stand it, and will hate this bar, but oddly I don’t know anyone who claims to love it.
Marzipan is one of those things that people tend to either love or hate. If you love it, you’ll like this bar. If not, you’re probably better off trying something else in the extensive Ritter Sport range.
