It’s been a while since my last review of the delightful Ritter Sport brand so I couldn’t wait to tuck in to yet another coconut-themed product which I purchased as part of my last Monster Sweets order – Ritter Sport Kokos. Dubbed ‘Variety of the Year’, I had high hopes for this chocolate, although it would have had to seriously impress me to leapfrog Weisse Cocos at the top of my top 10.

The Ritter Sport website described this Kokos bar as being ‘filled to the top with fine coconut-milk cream and crispy coconut flakes’. The bar came presented in a pale blue wrapper and was made of 30% cocoa milk chocolate which was supposed to have a ‘honey-caramel flavour’ as a result of the Ghanaian cocoa beans it was produced from.

The bar consisted of the more standard 16 squares, each engraved with the brand name. These squares were deep and I was pleased to see that the pale coconut cream really did fill each one. Even more excitingly, the Kokos bar had a lovely strong coconut smell...although it could have been stronger!

The bar had a thick chocolate shell which was soft and creamy and immediately started to melt on contact with the tongue – beautiful. When chewing, the previously mentioned caramel flavour was also detectable, providing a slightly darker taste to the overall chocolate one. The coconut flavour was also at a perfect level since it was strong enough to be the main taste but, due it being in cream form, it wasn’t overpowering either. In addition, there were plenty of visible coconut flakes (5.8% of the bar, in fact) that provided a crispy texture and authentic feel to the product, and I was pleased that they didn’t even feel unpleasant when left behind in the mouth after the chocolate had melted.

Since Ritter Sport Kokos combines milk chocolate with coconut, it’s hard not to make associations with the Bounty chocolate bar, and there’s no denying that there was a similarity. However, the Ritter Sport chocolate was far more delicious in its own right and, due to the bar containing 12.8% ‘whole milk powder’, the overall experience was one of a more luxurious creaminess. It really was in a league of its own. In fact, when writing the notes for this review, I wrote two simple words: ‘soooooo amazing’.

I can’t actually put into words how fantastically delicious this bar was. It had so much flavour and such a soft, creamy texture, yet it didn’t get sickly. It didn’t take me long to polish off the whole 100g and, instead of feeling queasy, the words that popped into my head as I swallowed my last mouthful were: ‘Please, sir, can I have some more?’
