REVIEW! Kingdom Milk Chocolate and Cappuccino Centre

Kingdom Milk Chocolate and Cappuccino Centre

I am not sure if you will remember but I reviewed the Kingdom Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter Centre bar a little while ago and at the same time I purchased the Cappuccino version. I found both bars in Waitrose and paid £1.89 for each.

Kingdom are a British company and they have some really interesting bars in their range including the Lemon and Lime centre which I REALLY want to try but haven't managed to track down yet, and a very unusual Rhubarb and Vanilla centre. As a hater of rhubarb I have been too scared to try the latter but you can check out a review of it over on Kev's Snack Reviews.

The Milk Chocolate with Cappuccino bar is described as "a whisked coffee and milk chocolate centre boldy sitting in a creamy milk chocolate shell". It is a 100g bar and contains 559 calories in the whole thing.

The bar has 12 sections, each with the Kingdom crown logo on it and I also just wanted to point out the packaging because I think that it looks fantastic! They have kept it quite simple but the combination of colours really mean that these bars stand out on the shelf, I just really like the brown and green!

Like the peanut butter bar, the flavoured centre is not massively obvious on first look, it's more like a little blob in the centre. Having enjoyed the Kingdom milk chocolate before, I knew to expect the same good quality, creamy tasting chocolate but I was actually a bit unsure if I was going to like this bar when I purchased it. As I mentioned when I reviewed the Ritter Sport Espresso bar the other day, I like my coffee strong and cappuccino is the opposite of that to me so I wasn't sure how it would translate into a chocolate bar and whether it might be a bit too "milky". 

I need not have worried though, the coffee flavour, although quite subtle and not as obvious as in that Ritter Sport bar, was really nice! The chocolate was as good as I expected and the coffee gave it a nice interesting edge.

Verdict
Another fantastic bar from Kingdom and I look forward to tracking down the other bars in the range.

  1. Thanks for the mention Hannah! :) I've seen this bar in Waitrose and wasn't sure whether to buy or not..wish I had now!

    I've tried the lemon and lime one myself - it's very nice, it kinda reminds me of those chocolate lime sweets.
