Have you ever tried a Ritter chocolate?  It’s those cute little (or large) square chocolates from Germany with different colors and flavors.  This square shaped chocolate is quite famous in Europe, and they even have a museum in Waldenbuch (near Stuttgart).  If you love chocolate, then this museum is a must see when you’re around the Stuttgart area.

Here is the square building museum, the left side (with the tilted square design on the outside) holds an art museum dedicated to SQUARES, yes an inspiration for the shape of the Ritter chocolate.  And to the right side is the Ritter chocolate history museum with a shop section.

My favorite part of the Ritter museum, its the machine where you press a button and a red truck delivers you a free Ritter chocolate.  Be prepared to wait a bit in line as this gets crowded with kids.
