Chocolate Indulgence

Picked up at the Yuppiemart: a "limited edition" Ritter Sport chocolate bar with "Rum, Raisins, Hazelnuts," and perhaps an extra comma: the raisins appear to have been soaked in rum and the combination is appallingly tasty.  (And I barely drink, certainly never rum!)  A search-engine scan finds 'em widely available with German-language labeling, so possibly only the Englisch Sprache version was a limited edition.  (Nope, I didn't get any freebies for this and just as well -- 'tis better a rare treat.)

HAVE YOU TRIED DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED
MARZIPAN GOLD OR RED FOIL WRAPPED IMPORTED FROM LUBECK?

Ritter is excellent chocolate!
Try the (believe-it-or-not) Ritter Cornflake bar!
Wonderful!

I don't worship the Demon either, Roberta, but I do find that an occasional Cuba Libre adds a certain yo-ho-ho to life.

World Market is a reliable resource for all things Ritter...

What Jim said. Plus, if a bartender knows what a Cuba Libre is without having it explained, I feel confident that he or she can mix whatever I ask for.

I've lost my taste for chocolate for the most part, but Ritter is one of the best mass-market chocolates on the market. Their yogurt bar is sinful.

Second on the Ritter cornflake! I suspect the store thinks it is a limited edition, the Rum/Raisin/Hazelnut has been avaliable in the UK for a number of years.

"Limited Edition" was printed right on the US-FDA-compliant wrapper.

I find about 12 selections at a local German grocery!
(at least I did in my old neighborhood!)
