Ritter Sport Marzipan

I suppose marzipan chocolate is the flavor everyone not from Germany or Switzerland wants to try from here. Unfortunately I haven’t got hold of other variations up to now, but I am sure I will get this opportunity someday. This marzipan bar made by Ritter Sport is almost as old as my granny: Back in 1935 the first marzipan treat was produced by Ritter and since then it has been among their main products.

The Rittersport Marzipan chocolate comes with mid-dark chocolate, as most good marzipan chocolate. This is simply because the taste of the over-sugared marzipan combined with milk chocolate would be too sickly. Of course the main ingredient is sugar, but this was expectable as Marzipan contains a large amount of (unneeded) sugar. That is why I tend to only eat Marzipan for confectioners, but this one is for reviewing. I remember myself taking out the marzipan and only eating the chocolate coating when I was younger.

The chocolate alone is really bitter, even bitterer than the usual mid-dark version from Ritter Sport. As expected, the marzipan is the entire opposite. But mixed up together they blend in really well. The Marzipan itself is not the best one on the market, but that’s not what I demand of a 0.85 Euro priced 100g chocolate bar. It is smooth, sweet, but you can still taste the almonds. It certainly is Ritter Sport style and with a few exceptions they do really good work, especially for the money (the somewhat more expensive organic versions are stunning; but more on them later). Back to topic. If you take a bite, you can feel the solid texture of the chocolate layer before entering the soft filling. The chocolate melts pretty well for a mid-dark one and the taste as a whole is pretty decent.

All in all, I like it, a good chocolate treat by Ritter Sport!
