Ritter Sport Cornflakes 
Posted: 4 June 2014    7.0 
Ritter Sport Cornflakes from Germany The cornflakes work extremely well in Ritter Sport's commercially produced milk chocolate made from a bulk of West African cocoa beans mixed with a few from Madagascar and Papua New Guinea.  Expect a nice change, not a reinvention of the chocolate universe.   
Avg price/gram: USD 0.023   Cocoa %: 30  Size: 16.7g  German chocolate 
       


The Ritter Sport Cornflakes bar is a first on the Chocolate Republic.  After reviewing over 200 bars here, I haven't yet reviewed a chocolate bar filled with cornflakes.       

I'm not anti-flake.  As a child, Kellogg's Corn Flakes were one of the mainstay cereals in our house.  And I'm sure not just in our house but in most households across America at that time, and maybe even today. Scores of imitators produce their own versions of corn flakes.  You could arguably say it's as common as Rice Krispies as an international cereal, and yet you often see rice in chocolate, rarely cornflakes. The most famous cornflake-derived bar is Butterfinger, but this bar has added peanut butter and the inferior chocolate in the Butterfinger takes a backseat to more dominant textures and flavors.            

I meant that you don't see pure milk chocolate or dark chocolate bars using cornflakes as a filling, and for no good reason.  The nutritional value of conventional cornflakes may be questionable.  Its taste is not.  Cornflakes taste great as a junk food cereal and should taste great in chocolate.         

Ritter Sport's boldness comes from taking this slight off-the-mainstream ingredient and stuffing it into a chocolate bar when its rivals are not. Ritter got off its ass to do what I'm surprised Hershey and Nestle never bothered to do. The cornflakes work extremely well in Ritter Sport's commercially produced milk chocolate made from a bulk of West African cocoa beans mixed with a few from Madagascar and Papua New Guinea.          

Expect a nice change, not a reinvention of the chocolate universe, and you should be a-okay with Ritter Sport Cornflakes. If that sounds too corny, eat a milk chocolate bar.
