Or maybe you remember sitting beneath the Christmas tree with your brothers and sisters, surrounded by wrapping paper as you unwrapped the old fashioned hard Christmas candy you found in your stockings.

Ritter Sport : A Delicious Retro Candy Bar

Decadent chocolate with only the finest added ingredients? Sounds like a chocolate lover’s dream! If you haven’t tried a Ritter Sport Chocolate Bar, you are seriously missing out. From a classic chocolate square, to a filled chocolate with nuts, to seasonal flavors with unique fillings, these chocolates are a true retro candy classic. What else should you know about Ritter Sport Chocolates? These are a couple fun facts about these delicious treats.

Ritter Sport Retro Candy | BlairCandy.comThe company was founded in 1912 in Germany by Alfred Eugen Ritter and Clara Ritter.

Clara came up with the company’s signature square shape. Why square? It was supposed to “fit in everyone’s jacket pocket without breaking and weighs the same as a normal long bar.”

Ritter Sport also had long bars, boxes of chocolate, and other seasonal products. These were gradually phased out in 1960 to focus on the square bars.

Ritter Sport is a very environmentally friendly company! In the early 1990’s they switched to fully recyclable packaging and developed a agroforestry project where they get their cocoa from in Nicaragua. There is also an organic range of chocolates that are available.

If you’re ready to try this unique and completely delicious range of chocolates, be sure to check out the Ritter Sport Chocolates on BlairCandy.com! There are plenty of flavors or this retro candy to choose from and enjoy!
