Rich with a good bitter/sweet balance this is a great tasting, well priced, ethically produced chocolate bar.
I will admit to being a bit of a chocoholic. I don’t eat vast quantities however and am a firm believer in quality over quantity. The range of chocolate suitable for vegans has really expanded in the last few years which is great to see. Kingdom Chocolate is a new family run business from Sussex. They currently produce a range of six bars with interesting flavours and source all their cocoa beans through an ethical scheme that works with Ugandan farmers. Price wise they sit between a supermarket own label quality bar and the leading chocolate brands.
Satisfyingly chunky dark chocolate with a good snap. I was expecting the mousse layer to ooze out when it was broken up with it’s more of a solid subtle praline layer through the middle of each piece. At 61% cocoa solids it’s a bit lower than most other vegan friendly dark bars but it still tastes pleasantly rich and bitter. The range contains interesting flavours such as rhubarb and vanilla and orange marmalade but sadly this is the only flavour that is currently suitable for vegans. They are a new range though so I have hopes for the future!
