Chocolate always tastes better during the Holidays. Especially if it's RITTER SPORT, makers of fine quality European chocolate bars. Using the best raw ingredients, like cocoa from Africa, hand-selected hazelnuts from Turkey or sun-dried raisins from California, RITTER SPORT crafts a chocolate bar that's both delicious and natural.
Not only does RITTER SPORT feature high quality chocolate, but they also offer a wide variety of bars. With 18 standard bars and six seasonal varieties in the U.S. (each color coordinated so that it's easy to remember your favorite), RITTER SPORT can satisfy any chocolate aficionado. Bars are packed with fillings like whole hazelnuts and almonds, marzipan, butter cookies and even cornflakes, while their iconic square shape is optimal for bigger bites.
RITTER SPORT is also the perfect snack, especially when you're on the go during the Holidays. Which is why we've put together a must-see itinerary of NYC's best Holiday sights, each pairing perfectly with your favorite RITTER SPORT chocolate bar.
Have Central Park To Yourself
Central Park might be more of a summer destination for most New Yorkers, but head in during the winter and you'll practically have the place to yourself. Take in views unobstructed by leaves, bite into a RITTER SPORT bar on the Great Lawn, then head to the Museum of Natural History on Central Park West to see their Origami Holiday Tree.
Holiday Gazing on 5th Avenue
Christmas in New York City isn't complete without a stroll down Fifth Avenue. Channel your inner child at FAO Schwartz, window shop at Bergdorf Goodman (the displays are dazzling) and finish at Rockefeller Plaza for a well earned RITTER SPORT chocolate break beside the towering Christmas tree.
Ice Skating at Bryant Park
Rather than hit the rink at Rockefeller Plaza (you'll spend more time waiting in line than actually skating), opt to take the ice at Bryant Park. The rink features free admission and high quality skate rentals are available, while the surrounding Winter Village features 125 shops perfect for any last minute gifts. And don't forget to grab a park bench, where you can split a RITTER SPORT bar with a friend or loved one.
The Holiday Train Show
The New York Botanical Garden pulls out all the stops for the Holidays, and their annual Holiday Train Show is a must. Kids and adults will love their detailed sets, featuring New York City landmarks and the Hudson River Valley mansions. Grab a RITTER SPORT chocolate bar and head to the Bronx River Parkway for this afternoon adventure.
Brooklyn Flea's Winter/Holiday Market
The renowned Brooklyn Flea moves indoors for the Holidays, taking over a 50,000 square foot space in Williamsburg through December 22. Over 200 vendors will be on hand at this giant market. Hop the L train out to Brooklyn for an afternoon of shopping, hanging out with friends and listening to music. Bring some extra RITTER SPORT bars and we promise your friends will thank you.
