Ritter Sport Chocolate, bring the German chocolate tradition to your home, REVIEW

I don't know abut you, but I love chocolate. And, when I splurge on indulgent chocolate, I want the chocolate to be completely decadent. My chocolate of choice is Ritter Sport Chocolate

If you aren't familiar with Ritter Sport Chocolate, it is an 100 year old German Chocolate company.

Recently, we hosted a Ritter Sport party during my son's birthday party. I can honestly say that I have gotten my whole neighborhood hooked on Ritter Sport. Many of my guests were unfamiliar with Ritter Sport, but now they are converts to the Quadratisch. Praktisch. Gut, a German phrase meaning Square, Practical, Good.

Luckily one of our good friends is German and he could tell us everything that we wanted to know about Ritter Sport, including the German phrase that I just mentioned. Our friend told stories of growing up in Germany where the chocolate squares were his father's favorite treat that he shared with his sons.

In addition to tasting all the great chocolate, we had to build a design out of Ritter minis. Our creation was our neighborhood. It had a bunch of houses, the pool/play area and of course a RAINBOW - we were wishing for a rainbow because it was a cold, rainy weekend.

In addition to our neighborhood, we created a #5 mosaic in honor of the little man's five year old birthday party. What person wouldn't want their age made out of chocolate!

Throughout the party, we sampled a variety of Ritter Sport flavors. Ritter Sport comes in two sizes, a 100 gram square and a mini.  Each 100 gram square-shaped bar is divided into 17 smaller squares, creating a four-by-four pattern  and smaller 16.5 gram mini bars.

We let the kids enjoy the minis. At first, they were skeptical but they quickly drove into the cornflakes variety.  We had all 16 varieties for adults to try and vote on their favorite.There was much debate over milk versus dark chocolate as well as hazelnuts or no nuts.

Personally, I'm torn between two favorites. The butter biscuit and the chocolate mousse are my top choices.

There are 16 varieties of Ritter Sport. They include:
  1. Neopolitan Wafer
  2. Cornflakes
  3. White Whole Hazelnuts
  4. Whole Hazelnuts
  5. Butter Biscuit
  6. Raisins & Hazelnuts
  7. Dark Whole Hazelnuts
