Ritter Sport White Cinnamon Crisp (Ocado) By @Cinabar

Ritter Sport White Cinnamon Crisp

I’m still loving cinnamon season, or autumn as some of you may call it. My favourite spice comes to life at this time of year. I wish it was around all year, but it gives me a reason to look forward to the colder weather. Ritter Sport has a whole new bar dedicated to the spice and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. This Ritter Sport White Cinnamon Crisp is made with white chocolate rather than milk chocolate, so it should be an interesting combo. I unwrapped the bar and found the usual Ritter Sport square pieces, on a white base but packed with a darker speckle. There were more dark bits than the picture on the front of the bar, which is fine by me because I do love cinnamon.

I gave it a try and found the bar to be sweet and spicy. Now, as someone who loves cinnamon, I was always going to like this bar, accept I’m biased on that front. There is plenty of cinnamon and it seems to be in a sort of brown sugary crystal texture to the bar. There is also rice crispy bits mixed in. This makes the bar fun to eat as it has an interesting texture. Two things struck me though, firstly that the white chocolate was fairly solid and usually white chocolate is soft. I was okay with this, it just distracted from the fun texture a small amount. The second thing was as I was eating it, I was thinking how much nicer it would be in milk chocolate, as overall the flavour was a bit sweet. I have a high sweet tolerance, so I think it might be a bit much for some. So yeah, I came a way liking this Ritter Sport White Cinnamon Crisp bar but trying to work out why I didn’t love it. It was close but somehow missed the mark.
