My Ritter Sport Ranking

A list from Gawker has been going around the internet this past week titled, "Ritter Sport Varieties, Ranked".  I love Ritter Sport chocolate. Every time someone is visiting from Germany, I always request a bar or two.  When I came home from studying abroad, at least 3 pounds of my luggage was Ritter Sport.  I didn't go to the main headquarters in Waldenbuch, Germany, but I've been to the mini-museum in Berlin.  The former is on my list of places to visit.  So, I decided to do my own list*:

26.  Rum Trauben Nuss – Milk chocolate with rum-soaked raisins and hazelnut pieces (Crimson Red Wrapper)
25.  Trauben-Nuss – Milk chocolate with raisins and hazelnut pieces (Carmine Red Wrapper)
24. Schoko-Duo – Plain milk chocolate and white chocolate (Royal Blue Wrapper with chocolate bar on outside)
23.  Ganze Mandel – Milk chocolate with whole almonds (Dark Green Wrapper)
22.  Haselnuss – Milk chocolate with hazelnuts (Green wrapper)
21.  Karamell – Milk chocolate with caramel filling. (Orange wrapper)
20.  Voll-Nuss – Milk chocolate with whole hazelnuts (Brown Wrapper with Hazelnut-Pattern)
19.  Knusperkeks – Milk chocolate with a butter biscuit (Brown Wrapper)
18.  Noisette – Hazelnut-flavored milk chocolate. (light green wrapper)
17.  Edelbitter – Plain dark chocolate, 71% cacao (Pink Wrapper)
16.  Dunkle Vollmilch – Plain medium dark chocolate, 40% cacao (Azure Blue Wrapper)
15.  Nugat – Milk chocolate with hazelnut-nougat center (Midnight Blue Wrapper)
14.  Neapolitan – Milk Chocolate with neapolitan wafers, made with a hazelnut cream filled wafers and praline. (medium dark orange wrapper)
13.  Karamel Nuss - Milk Chocolate with butter caramel cream dropped hazelnuts and crispy rice (Golden yellow wrapper)
12.  Knusperflakes – Milk chocolate with corn flakes (Golden Yellow Wrapper)
11.  Alpenmilch – Special milk chocolate with high alpine milk proportion (Sky Blue Wrapper)
10.  Vollmilch – Plain milk chocolate (Royal Blue Wrapper)
9.  Olympia – Milk Chocolate with yoghurt, honey, and glucose. (Gold Wrapper)
8. Halbbitter – Plain dark chocolate, 50% cacao (Burgundy Wrapper)
7. Marzipan – Dark chocolate with marzipan center (Red Wrapper)
6. Erdbeer Joghurt – Milk chocolate strawberry and yogurt filling (Light Pink Wrapper)
5. Dunkle Voll-Nuss – Dark chocolate with whole hazelnuts (Dark Brown Wrapper with Hazelnut-Pattern)
4.  Cappuccino – Milk chocolate and cappuccino cream (Amber Wrapper)
3. Feinherb à la Mousse au Chocolat – dark chocolate filled with chocolate mousse (Bistre Wrapper)
2.  Joghurt – Yogurt (White Wrapper)
1. Pfefferminz – Chocolate with peppermint filling (Caribbean Green Wrapper)

Flavors I have yet to try:

  • Weiße Voll-Nuss – White chocolate with whole hazelnuts (White/Cream Wrapper with Hazelnut-Pattern)
  • Williams Birne Trüffel – dark chocolate filled with Poire Williams pear brandy mousse
  • Cocos – Milk chocolate with flakes of coconut in the center (Silver Wrapper)
  • Kakao-Keks – Dark chocolate with cookie center. (Brown Wrapper with cookie background)
  • Kakao-Mousse – Whipped Cream Cocoa in Alpine Milk Chocolate. (Brown Wrapper)
  • Voll Erdnuss – Milk chocolate with whole peanuts (Orange Wrapper)
I really, really want to try the coconut one.  Guess I have a bit of taste testing to do!

Bottom line, Ritter Sport chocolate is amazing and if you're in Germany, you should eat as many flavors as possible...and bring some back for me!

*Note: I know not all the flavors are here, specifically seasonal ones.  I used the list of varieties on Wikipedia, like the original post.  Also, not all the flavors are available as the typical 100g bars; some only exist in mini or cube form.
