Review of Kinnerton Just Chocolate

Now I’m a lady who loves her chocolate as a guilty sweet treat. It can however be quiet difficult to get a chocolate fix when you follow a dairy free diet. So many chocolates contain milk. So I always have to a secret supply of chocolate for such occasions. I tried Kinnerton dark & smooth chocolate mints last year and loved everything about them. So I decided to try to hunt down one of their chocolate bars to try. Easier said than done. I finally found some in Morrisons and grabbed a few bars to try.

Onto the packaging I liked the simplicity of this chocolate. It’s brown colour with a simple cream logo, sometimes simple is best. It is described as being deliciously smooth and dark that’s all I need to know. They are clearly labelled as being dairy free, egg free, gluten free and nut free. They are also suitable for a vegan diet. Onto the ingredients list the only allergen highlighted is soya. To the back of the packet the labelling also states that they are suitable for individuals who have a peanut and tree nut allergy.

On opening the packet I was greeted by a lovely cocoa aroma that I associate with dark chocolate. This didn’t change of my famous close up sniff test. On biting into the chocolate a nice hard crunch was noted followed by a smooth consistency. Onto the flavour my taste buds got hit by the slight bitterness intermingled with a slight sweetness. This was perfect as it resulted in me only needing to consume a few pieces.

So would I recommend this chocolate? Yes I would. I loved everything about this chocolates from the aroma, through to the texture and flavour. It was well worth the wait. So if you follow a dairy free, gluten free, or a vegan diet why not give this chocolates a try. So thank you Kinnerton for producing a nice bar of chocolate that I can enjoy.

    Sounds good! I’m always on the hunt for good dairy-free chocolate. I wonder if I can get it shipped here to the US…
    Do you have Enjoy Life products where you are? (UK, right?) Their products are excellent and free of all Top8 allergens and even more things. Their chocolate is excellent.

      Hi, I am not sure if it can be sorry. We do have some Enjoy Life products in the UK I really enjoyed the cookies. I am not sure we have the chocolate over here. Next time my family pop over I shall ask them to grab me some.

    I’ve never tried dairy- free chocolate before, to be honest I’m not much a chocolate eater anyways! But, this does sound quite interesting and if I do buy some chocy soon I’ll see if I can get this one!

    I didn’t know Kinnerton made actual chocolate bars. I always associate them with advent calendars and kids’ character Easter eggs (especially ones with character egg cups). I’ll have to look out for these!

      Hi, they sure do I think it may just be for a specialist market for those with a food allergy or intolerance. I highly recommend that you try it.

  9. January 19, 2018 / 9:19 pm

    Kinnerton chocolate is so nice, it’s one of the few dairy free chocolates I actually like! I’ve rarely seen the chocolate bars in shops.

  10. January 19, 2018 / 10:29 pm

    This was such a pleasant surprise! I’ve never tried this brand but as I’m sue you know, most dairy free chocolate that’s deliberately dairy free (not naturally dairy free because it’s high cocoa) tastes AWFUL. I’ll have to look out for this one x

    Kinnerton is always our go-to chocolate as it is nut free as well as dairy free. It works out a bit pricey when you buy a lot of it but I love their chocolate lollies for the kids too. #freefromfridays
