Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Salt Week. 

Today's Ritter Sport Caramello Salato (Salted Caramel) (bar) was from Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co. KG (Waldenbuch, Germany). 

Aroma notes included: salt caramel, milk chocolate, and faint sweet caramel toffee.

Texture: smooth, creamy milk chocolate studded with crunchy caramel (toffee) bits.

Flavor notes included: rich, milky chocolate, with microbursts of salted caramel/sweet toffee.

After the first bite (square), I wanted a squeak more salt, to help balance the sweetness (sugar is the number one ingredient). But subsequent squares turned up a bit more salt; and then the whole bar lit up in the sweet-salt addictive, "Goldilocks" zone. Beware, if you were only planning on having just a few bites.

Ingredients: "Milk chocolate with salter butter-caramel-crisps and caramel pieces. Ingredients: sugar, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor, milk, lactose (milk), skim milk, glucose syrup, butterfat (milk), butter (milk), soy lecithin, cream, salt.

Allergen-related information: (Contains milk, soy.) "May contain traces of peanuts, tree nuts, wheat and egg."
