Actually, the full title of this chocolate bar for review is, “Limited Edition for Red Nose Day, Circus Halligalli from Ritter Sport”. Bit of a mouthful, but how’s the chocolate?

We found this bar on our trip to Berlin’s Schokowelt. I’d actually been hoping to find the Unicorn bar which was released last year, as I’ve still never seen it. At this point, I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen. But instead of gaudy colours and a dubious association between chocolate and a magical fantasy creature, I found two limited edition bars in honour of Red Nose Day.

Whilst just this one bar made its way home with me, you can read about both varieties here. The bar descriptions are hilarious via Google Chrome Translate and I’ll be here when you’re done laughing.

The whole milk chocolate is typical of Ritter Sport: good quality, creamy and non-too-sugary. Nicely packaged away inside a smart looking box, this feels like a rather special Limited Edition product.

From the underside, the chocolate looks thoroughly studded with crispy bits. Barely a bite in and I recognise the flavour – or at least, I think I do. It strongly reminds me of something a friend sent from America once: Corn Nuts.

The crunchy bits taste strongly of roasted corn with a rich toastyness that occasionally tapers off. Turns out my “guess the filling” game was on point! This bar is filled with roasted and salted Maistückchen (corn pieces) and cornflakes. I was a little surprised to read the corn pieces were salted as that really didn’t come across.

Now then, given that Knusperflakes (the cornflake filled one) is my favourite Ritter Bar, it’s no surprise that I like this one quite a bit. Your mileage is really going to depend on how much you enjoy toasty, roasted corn flavours.

Fifty cents per bar are going to a good cause, so even if you don’t like it after all, your money hasn’t been wasted. Happy days!

    The white chocolate sounds like it deserves an applause. A happy clappy chocolate 😂 I love Google translate!

      It gives me such a giggle! Everything is more entertaining with Google Translate (unless it’s contract paperwork!) 😁
