Last year's Ritter Sport "Chocolate of the Year" was a combination chocolate and waffle cookie. I love that kind of cookie, but the Swiss do it better. See Kaegi-Fretli for an example.
This year, Ritter has brought out an absolute bar of heaven. Their wonderful milk chocolate is crowned by a caramel layer which is neither runny nor sticky. That in principle is good enough for me, but Ritter goes one more step. Actually two more steps.
They add their crispy rice and unbelievably crunchy hazelnuts into the mix, all thoroughly blended.
This is the first chocolate bar I bought from the television commercial, but when I saw the commercial last night, I turned to Dear Hubby and said, "Buy this tomorrow. Don't come home from the store without it."
He didn't let me down, angel that he is. We polished off half a bar in minutes. He'd bought two bars, so we put the rest away to enjoy them again very soon.
BTW, by "we polished off half a bar" I mean he got one square and I got the rest. Heehee.
Buy them. Enjoy them. They will be gone next year.
