Ritter Sport Winter-creation: Vanillekipferl

The second Winter version is Vanillekipferl. Vanillekipferl are small crescent shaped vanilla cookies eaten in Austria and Germany during Christmas time. Ritter Sport tried to imitate this flavor by using a vanilla crème with vanilla-biscuit-pieces embedded in a wholemilk chocolate. They use actual bourbon vanilla for their treat!

The vanilla-biscuit flavor is very intensive and coming slightly through the chocolate shell. It does contain a faint hint of nut as well, and I somehow like this combination of smell, even though I am not a Kipferl fan at all!

The filling seems similar to other crème fillings, except that its color is a little more yellowish than white or brown; and the cookie pieces are similar to small minced hazelnuts, except for the texture, which has a sandy crunch but less chewiness than actual nuts.

The taste is a mixture of milk chocolate, a nice amount of vanilla that neither overpowers the chocolat, nor is too weak, some nutty aroma and a creamy milk crème. But I can just repeat what others said before: The basically natural vanilla appears to be rather artificial in here, which is really a pity, because otherwise this chocolate is really nice. It does not ruin the bar or so, I only think this would not have been necessary.

Before I tried this bar I wasn’t sure I’d like it, just because I am not too much into cookies, especially no Vanillekipferl. But combined with the chocolate shell and the crème I really enjoyed this bar and find it suiting for the Winter season!

    were the cookie pieces similar to the biscuit pieces found in the standard ritter-biscuit bar?

      No, not at all. The standard ritter biscuit bar has one “solid” biscuit in it which mainly consists of butter. The Vanillekipferl bisuits are usually made of shortcrusts, that’s the difference.
