Spring may well have sprung but that isn’t going to stand in the way of the winter edition Ritter Sport Spiced Biscuit. Even when a food is specific to a season or holiday that for sure isn’t going to stop us from chowing on down.
Ritter Sport have some corkers but as usual the UK gets only a small selection. The range has certainly expanded but the real amazing sounding flavours just never reach us. I have reviewed a couple, the Cornflakes is delicious and the Rum and Raisin packs a punch. So will the Ritter Sport Spiced Biscuit be just as good?
This bar was nestled with a pile of other Ritter Sports chocolate bars in a local garden centre. Isn’t it funny how you can unearth these food finds in garden centres rather that supermarkets and food stores where you would expect. Coming in at a rounded £1.00, I was a little joyful about finding this bar. Spiced biscuit aka what you and I compare to as Lotus is scrumptious so pairing with chocolate let’s hope this takes it to new levels.
This is very much a biscuity chocolate. As you can see alongside the always generously thick and creamy milk chocolate there is a thick biscuit base. The flavours were warm and cosy with a hum of cinnamon and spices that quintessentially scream Christmas and Winter. Now other blogs around – FYI Eat Explore Etc literally has reviewed every Ritter Bar, go check it out; show the Spekulatius Winter-Kreation chocolate bar from Ritter Sport rather than the bar I have today. Although in essence it’s the same bar down to the packaging, aside from this being in English, I was really hoping for a creamier centre. Alas no. Thank god there was the chocolate because if not this would have been very dry!
As much as this Ritter Sport Spiced Biscuit bar was a combination of delicious flavour and indulgent chocolate, there is a pang of disappointment. Whilst I would keep the biscuit layer, what could have really turned this up a notch is having some of that heavenly biscuit spread sandwiched in there too!
