Disclosure: I was chosen to host a #RitterSport #Tryazon party, in exchange for samples to be sampled during party. All views shared are mine and mine alone.
When I think of Ritter Sport chocolates, I think of taking a trip through Germany, munching on Ritter chocolate, and sipping wine.
When I first heard the folks at Tryazon were looking for hosts for #RitterSport party hosts, I quickly applied-I couldn’t wait to have a reason to get friends together to celebrate chocolate. I nearly jumped for joy (ok, I actually did jump) when they chose me to host a sampling building chocolate party with family and friends.
Those of you that know me, know that I love, love, love chocolate.
I’m the go-to girl when it comes to knowing the best chocolate out there. Ritter Sport Chocolate finds itself on my star list of great chocolate. To throw a party where this delicious chocolate as the star of the party was like Christmas coming early!
Have you tried Ritter Sport chocolate? If not, you have been missing out. I just simply L.O.V.E. this chocolate with it’s colorful wrappers–I have an urge to purchase every single color, align them accordingly, and marvel over my beautiful chocolate rainbow.
And not share… 😉
Let me give you a sampling of some of their flavors (if only you could come over)…
Butter Biscuit (brown wrapper): milk chocolate wrapped around tiny squares of a shortbread cookie. If you’ve always wished that chocolate dipped cookies had more chocolate and less cookie, this is the candy bar for you.
Espresso (dark brown wrapper): milk chocolate with a creamy coffee filling. This bar packs a potent coffee punch–the chocolate plays a supporting roll. Enjoy a square or two after dinner for an easy version of dessert with coffee.
Marzipan (red wrapper): dark chocolate with a marzipan filling. The almond flavor is wonderful compliment to the chocolate.
Let’s get onto the party! Prior to guests arriving, I set up the table with chocolate bars stacked as a center piece, and sprinkled the minis around and put some in dishes.
I was given tasting charts to lay out six different Ritter Sport flavors along with a tasting notes sheet for everyone to fill out what they guessed to be the flavor. I was very excited for everyone to arrive, and it took all my might to not nibble on the chocolate!
Everyone made their way around to the chocolate tasting squares. I liked seeing what they wrote and what was their favorites. Here are the flavors I had.
I also had mini chocolate bars that Ritter Sport asked us to create either one-of-a-kind edible candy art, or 3-D structures. Everyone had so much fun trying to come up with something. We might of ate some of the mini bars along the way as we were creating art. : )
After some ideas, we decided on doing their logo someone saw online. I thought it turned out cool!
But, I had one more surprise for everyone in attendance…more Ritter Sport chocolate. Everyone that came got a box of mini chocolate bars to bring home and enjoy, along with a few $1 off coupons so that they could buy their favorite full-size Ritter Sport chocolate bars and try more flavors.
I plan on stocking up on the Espresso flavored bar and the milk chocolate with cornflakes.
I hope this gives you a reason to get family and friends together! You can get some 3.5 Ritter Sport bars and do a blind chocolate taste test, and pair it with some fine wine.
I would come if you invited me…
I had a blast planning and hosting a chocolate party, and I think my guests had fun going. It’s so nice to just come over to someone’s house JUST to eat chocolate.
