Having tried some fantastic chocolate recently such as the Michel Cluizel 1ers Crus De Plantation I thought I’d continue with the theme of trying some cheap chocolate as I have done with the Ikea Dark Chocolate and the very cheap Sainsbury’s Basics Dark Chocolate, I thought I’d continue the theme and try a Ritter Sport Whole Hazelnuts which you get for just 97p from A Quarter of or Chocolate Buttons for 80p each or in bulk or wholesale quantities of packs of 5 for £3.90.
The Ritter Sport with Whole Hazelnuts isn’t meant to be a fine or luxury chocolate bar, its just there to satisfy your chocolate craving, probably when you’re out and about. And, to that end, it does it very well indeed. The chocolate itself is average, sweet and has a minimum of 30% cocoa content. I actually prefer it to Nestle chocolate which has a strange, overly sweet flavour to me. But the sweetness in the Ritter chocolate has a nice-rounded nature to it.
I did like the whole hazelnuts, but I did find them to be a bit bland if you’re unfortunate enough to have a couple in a square. I’d prefer to have smaller hazelnut pieces in them.
The thing is, I don’t normally finish chocolate bars when I review the, but this one has almost gone – so it can’t be all that bad!
Taste: 65% – perfectly fine for chocolate that you’re just using to fill a hole, rather than to immerse yourself in.
Texture: 60% – the milk chocolate was a touch oily and there can be a situation where you have too many hazelnuts at once which leaves your mouth a bit dry.
Appearance: 70% – I did like the look of the wrapper and the bar itself.
Nutritional Information: 40% – it was pretty poor to be honest!
Price: 75% – at 80p its good value.
Overall: 62% – great as a snack, but definitely not as a great treat.
