Ritter Sport Marzipan

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.

    I have to say that I can’t stand the stuff.
    It’s a bit like Marmite in that respect isn’t it?

  2. basically it is the stuff germans buy from the supermarket as an “everyday” chocolate. i think i tried around 75% of all the offered flavors in a quite fat period of my life and the peppermint or white chocolate crisp flavors are kinda addictive. but now as i am extending my chocolate horizon ritter sport actually drops way down on my list. they probably import cocoa from somewhere but then they add some extra stuff that gives you the definite ritter sport taste that i could figure out smelling a piece of chocolate with my eyes closed… this particular marzipane one is a rather bad try with half dark chocolate in my humble oppinion.

    i guess marzipan (or ‘marchpane’ to others) is an acquired taste. not too keen on it either. too cloying for my taste.

    are you serious?!
    i absolutely LOVE marzipan!
    i eat the chocolate and peel the marzipan out so i can just enjoy the taste of almondy goodness!

    I was never a big fan of marzipan…BUT….this is my new favorite candy next to dark chocolate covered almonds.

    The best marzipan I’ve ever had.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE marzipan! I really like these Ritter Sport bars, but my favorite is See’s Candy marzipan. Next time you’re in See’s Candy, be sure to try their marzipan!
