Ritter Sport almond-nibs

Ritter Sport’s organic chocolate line has caught me indeed. I like the idea of a higher quality cocoa-wise, even though I think the organic part is a little unnecessary. But: There are people (like my granny) who highly believe in this kind of ingredients. Of course, artificial flavors or colors are strictly forbidden, which definitely is a good thing, but here in Germany, non-organic products do have a high production and test standard.

But you can tell the difference between the common and the organic product. Not only production-wise (the testing is way stricter!), but also taste-wise. The almond nib chocolate contains a nice amount of 35% of cocoa that provides an amazingly smelling aroma in connection with the almonds. The clicking noise is rather firm for a milk chocolate, but as you know, there are almond nibs of every size in it. They put in some bite, while the chocolate is soft and smooth and tends to melt very soon.

There is a nice sweetness coming with the melting process; and when you chew on the almond nibs at the same time, you have a good amount of cocoa, a nice milky-sweet flavor combined with those nutty and juicy almonds.

After I was a little disappointed with the other organic chocolate treats, this one is my favorite so far! It is really good and even better than the common almond nibs miniature I’ve already written about.

Ritter Sport Cocoa nibs and nut

The organic treats from Ritter Sport are only sized 65g and a little more expansive; and usually you can taste the difference here! Otherwise they look exactly the same as their cheaper siblings, just the containers are smaller. This is the first organic bar I review (I’ve tried three or four), just because I like the combination most. This was also the first organic version I’ve tried, and me eating a whole bar without getting to review it – this seems to be really good stuff!

Look at this bar, doesn’t it look tempting? This mid-brownish, smooth color is really awesome. This chocolate treat smells absolutely delicious. A rich milk chocolate meets hazelnuts and dark cocoa nibs.

And what a chocolate! The chocolate itself is really rich of cocoa, considering it is a milk chocolate! It is not as sweet as usual milk chocolate (35%) and it kind of explodes in your mouth. There are tiny to huge bits of hazelnut in it that make the chocolate crunchy and really nutty. It is just the right amount of nuts to let it melt and chew at the same time. Then there are those awesome cocoa nibs in it. Compared to the nuts they are really small, but the taste is really rich of cocoa and they add a nice ‘real’ chocolaty flavor to the bar. I can hardly let this bar melt because of the filling, but I chew it very slowly and try to enjoy every bit of this delicious thing.

More chocolate like that, please!
