Ritter Sport German Chocolate- Review and Giveaway 4 winners!

CHOCOLATE!!! 

Yeah, That about says it all. Well It would but this stuff I'm talking about is hands down, 100%, No Lie, The BEST darn Chocolate I have ever put in my mouth. I'm talking May The Good Lord strike me down now If I'm lying. OK good. I'm still here. See? Still here. I tell you people the truth!

And just what is this super amazing wonderful stuff I am talking about? RITTER SPORT! . Oh yeah baby. It is the STUFF!!! So here is the deal, I'm a bit of a chocolate freak. I have it hidden in every room of my house. Just not the bathroom. That's just nasty. Anyway, if anyone ever needs just a little sweet snack, I have you covered. 

Let me start at the beginning. 

I grew up living with my grandparents,(my Oma and Opa). My dear Grandmother Passed away in 2001. She had Lupus too. (That stuff, It sucks!!) Anyway, we did not eat much American food. German, Irish, Italian, Yes. American, No. I can't remember the first time I had  Ritter Sport but I do remember the first time I bought it for myself. I was 17 and went to New Mexico to help watch my young cousins who lived on an Air Force Base in Alamagordo. (spell check says I didnt spell that right but I'm not sure How to spell that. Oh well. its been 11 years!) anyway, I wound up watching like 7 kids that summer. I was supposed to be there for 6 weeks but Sweet Lord! I so couldnt handle that. My Mom and Dad came to get me like 1 or 2 weeks early. But I digress! While I was there, I went in one of the shops on base (It was a combo of American and German Military) I went down the Candy isle. Like always! I saw this Chocolate and Thought It looked familiar. I'm one to try odd products. Ask my Husband. LOL! I saw the Yogurt filled Chocolate and was like "Heck Yeah!" I bought 5 bars I think. I also remember that it lasted all of 2 days. 



I think I spent at least 50% of the money I made that summer on Ritter Sport Chocolate. I went about 6 years without having anymore untill I found this little German shop. I bought every single Yogurt bar. I'm not kidding. Santa Brought my 4 year old 12 bars for Christmas. The sad part is, its really for me! 
Ritter Sport is a great Company. Here is a quote from the website. NOTE: I totally agree with everything you are about to read. 

"Ritter Sport is the square chocolate with a difference: Quality. Chocolate. Squared. Founded in 1912 by Alfred and Clara Ritter in Waldenbuch, Germany, the Ritter family is dedicated to producing the finest quality chocolate from the best ingredients in the world. Its iconic square shape and colorful, snap-open package symbolize Ritter Sport’s commitment to its customers, quality and innovation. All of the 13 chocolate masses are expertly blended to complement the hand-selected ingredients featured in each variety. True to its family roots, every cocoa mass and ingredient undergoes rigorous quality control testing.

With Alfred T. Ritter, grandson of Alfred and Clara, now at the helm, Ritter Sport has further increased its commitment to the environment. In 1996 Ritter Sport became the first company in the confectionary industry to organize environmental protection systems at the company level. Ritter Sport’s environmental initiatives include promoting sustainable cacao agroforestry through its “Commitment Nicaragua” project, its own combined heating and power station, and, of course, Ritter Sport’s fully-recyclable, single-layer polypropylene packaging."

They care about the earth. I think that most companies do now but they did back when the laws were not in place for "green".  

Please visit their page  to learn more about them. It's a great family business. 


Guess what!?!?!?! They are so great, They are going to give 4, yes 4 of my readers a great prize! Want to know what it is???? NO? ok. I wont tell you. 

Kidding! Each of the 4 winners will win a sampler box of assorted flavors of chocolate. Each box contains 84 mini bars. I'm jealous!
