Ritter Sport Kokosmakrone (Coconut Macaroon) - Winter Kreation 2013 Review
A big thankyou to Monster Sweets for sending me this Ritter Sport Kokos-makrone bar to review recently! Like the Ritter Sport Caramel-Orange bar I've reviewed previously it's part of the Ritter Sport Winter Kreations 2013 range, which also includes a Caramelized Almonds variety.
Basically, if you're a fan of coconut chocolates then this is the chocolate for you! Ritter Sport's UK Website describe the bar as combining "freshly baked coconut macaroons with the best Ritter Sport milk chocolate and crispy rice flakes". This sounded absolutely delicious and rather unique to me, especially as there's currently no other coconut macaroon filled bars on the market.
As far as coconut chocolates go, this is right up there with the Ritter Sport Kokos on the deliciousness scale! The milk chocolate is Ritters usual standard - creamy and with a good cocoa flavour, and a lot nicer than the average UK mass-produced chocolate bar. The filling, as always, is where it truly shines though: its exceptionally smooth and creamy with a subtle vanilla flavour, and melts in the mouth like butter. The coconut macaroon biscuit pieces are very crunchy and provide a good strong coconut hit. Overall the bar tasted very biscuity, yet at the same time very creamy, making it the perfect combination of creamy and crunchy textures.
Overall, this is the perfect Christmas chocolate bar (well, except for Ritter Sport's Caramel-Orange Winter Kreation, perhaps!) and I would highly recommend stocking up while they're still around! They'd make the perfect gift for fans of coconut chocolates, in fact Monster Sweets are including them in their new "Coconut Gift Box" Hamper:
