While out and about, shopping for chocolate goodies for family and other guests, the name on this package was recognized as one mentioned in a previous post and/or comment on the Encounters Blog. It was snatched right up and tossed lightheartedly into the cart.
Back at the house the wrapper was studied. The expiration date was good, it should be fresh. The first ingredient listed was chocolate, another plus on the grading scale of plus and minus used here for all things of importance. Fiber-two grams, protein-two grams, calcium-two percent of the daily requirement, iron-ten percent. This was positively a health food. Let us skip the calories, fat and carbohydrate numbers for they are irrelevant, as is the portion size.
How thoughtful of the manufacturers to show us how to break this bar apart too. They think of everything, those German biscuit makers. But there’s the rub, is this a biscuit or a candy bar? Shall we give it the taste test? Let us open the package and give it the once over.
Following the helpful instructions on the packet, a section was broken off. The chocolate looks like the high quality stuff. The marzipan looks to be the right consistency and color. It smells chocolatey.
Mmmm. Chomp, chew, chew, chew, continued for nineteen more times. My grandmother taught that each bite of food should be chewed twenty-three times. That rule is followed religiously to this day. It does make for some slow eating, but each bite is truly savored.
The results of this taste test give the Ritter Sport dark chocolate with marzipan high marks. If one likes marzipan, one does, and this is made with 100% finest marzipan, it says so right on the label, and if one likes dark chocolate, ditto, since these are the two ingredients in this confection, one will agree with the tester. Bring on the next goodie!
