Dear Ritter Sport,

I will get straight to the point.

I’ve fallen in love with your chocolate.

  • Perhaps I shouldn’t be.  (How many Cocoa Mousses is it safe for a girl to eat in a week, anyway?!)
  • Perhaps the feeling isn’t mutual.  (What else would explain Coconut and Peppermint and Espresso – three flavors I long to try – not being available where I live?)

  • Perhaps it is because of the size.   It’s the perfect amount for a splurge night when I want my fill of chocolate.  (Yes.  I can easily eat a whole Ritter Sport in one sitting.  Stop looking at me like that.)
  • Perhaps it is because of the packaging.   Who can resist chocolate when it is packaged in such gorgeous hues?   Praline is a deep, stunning blue.  The aforementioned Peppermint is one of my favorite shades (a cross between teal and turquoise and aqua).  Pretty in pink:  Strawberry Cream.  There’s more, but I think you get the idea.
  • Last but not least, perhaps – no, not perhaps – it is because of the taste.  Rich.  Creamy.  Flavorful.  If the bar has nuts, the chocolate is chock-full of them.  If the bar has cream, there’s a nice thick layer instead of a barely-there taste.

Please don’t change a thing (except for maybe offering more flavors in more locations).
Your chocolate is perfect just the way it is.
