Ritter Sport Coffee-Vanilla Creme

Ritter Sport Coffee-Vanilla Creme is one of the three limited edition bars for Summer 2014, the other two being Raspberry & Cranberry Yogurt and Strawberry & Vanilla-Wafer. This product is called Ritter Sport EiscafĂ© in Germany. While I received this bar during the Sweets & Snacks Expo, it will most likely be available at World Market and some other specialty grocery stores. 

Place purchased: Free sample from the Sweets & Snacks Expo

Number of reviewers: 5

Appearance - 7.4

The Ritter Sport Coffee-Vanilla Creme bar has the traditional Ritter Sport format: a 100 g square with 16 segments. The bar consists of a milk chocolate shell with a light filling with tiny coffee bean flecks. 

Flavor and Taste - 8.6

The flavor is a combination of mocha and creamy vanilla. It tastes very similar to a sweet mocha coffee drink. The intensity of the coffee flavor works perfectly with the milk chocolate. 

C: Has a nice creamy flavor, and has the flavor of latte. Can taste it, but not overpowering. 
E: Dreamy mocha flavor. If only it were dark chocolate...
E2: Nice balance between the exterior chocolate and interior filling. Maybe a little more coffee.
S: Tastes good! Slight coffee. Balanced very well.

Texture - 8.5

The filling is very smooth, while the milk chocolate exterior has a harder texture while still having soft bite. 

C: Nice and creamy, both the chocolate and inside filling. 
E: Nice firm chocolate exterior and creamy center. 
E2: Creamy and smooth.
S: Creamy, almost like a pudding. 

Aftertaste - 8.1

The aftertaste is mainly that of milk chocolate, though there is a hint of coffee flavor that comes through. 

E: Lingering sweet coffee flavor - yum! No sour or off-notes. 
E2: Delicious, lingers in mouth. 
S: Chocolate. Don't really get a coffee aftertaste. 

Overall - 8.5

Overall, the Ritter Sport Coffee-Vanilla Creme bar is probably the best Ritter Sport bar I have ever eaten (and I have tried nearly all of them that existed within the past few years), and now one of my all-time favorite chocolate bars.
