There is plenty to do in the outlet store, however first you want to design your chocolate bar, because it takes 30 minutes or so to set before you can pick it up.  As many German activities are, there is a strict order to adhere to while you are dabbling in chocolate bar design.  You have to pay first!  On the far side of the bar where the women construct your chocolate bar there is a cash register.   When you pay, you will receive a white card for each bar you want to design which you will take to the counter and hand to the candy maker. (You can also order custom large bars here, but those take longer than 30 minutes, so you might want to call them to order it.)

One of the women will make all of your candy bars in the following steps:

1.  She asks you what you would like in your candy bar.  There are about 20 choices and some are more expensive  than others.  One thing you can only get in a custom bar was golden stars.  Um Hell yeah I want gold stars!

2.  After your choices are made and your little white card is filled out, she starts to make your bars with you just watching in anticipation.  She collects your three ingredients and puts them in a bowl.  Along with my stars, I chose candied almonds and chili flakes.

3.  She takes this to the chocolate fountain and pours gooey melted chocolate all over the ingredients; I chose milk chocolate but you could have had dark as well.

4.  She stirs vigorously all the ingredients and the chocolate together.  (I’m sure she’s got some serious muscles from doing this all day long.  I didn’t challenge her to arm wrestle!)

5.  The mixture is then spread into the bar mold.  It has those iconic deep trapezoidal holes that have made Ritter Sport famous.

6. This step is only needed if like me you chose gold stars or sprinkles.  These two ingredients are so special they don’t stir them into the chocolate, they put them on after so that you can see them well.

7.  The the candy maker bangs and bangs the mold to rid the chocolate of bubbles, puts your white card in the slot and sticks them in the refrigerator for the obligatory 30 minutes.

8. And when it’s finished, you go to the end of the counter to pick it up.  A helper will find your white cards and your specially designed bars, put them in a colorful Ritter Sport box and off you go.

While you wait for your bars to set, you can enjoy the “History and Making of Chocolate” exhibit upstairs, or sit and have a cup of coffee or hot chocolate alongside some other goodies (all made with Ritter Sport Chocolate Bars) like the ones pictured below.  Or, you can shop, shop, shop.  There are so many ways to buy chocolate here that no one with a sweet tooth can even begin to think of getting out of there without some fresh new flavors, and some non-chocolate goodies as well.

We had a blast visiting this Ritter Sport outlet, and it may be something we do each time we go to Berlin!  It’s just such a great little break from pounding the pavement.  You can be sure that if I’m traveling with little ones they will be bribed with their very own chocolate bar all day long!  It’s sooo worth it.

Have you been to Berlin?  Is it on your list?  Don’t forget to hit the Ritter Sport Berlin on your trip!
