“ Brand: Kingsmill / Type: Bread „
Was extremely disappointed that after only 2 days the bread had gone mouldy despite being kept in a cool place. Normally buy Aldi's own but thought it would make a nice change to buy Kingsmill even though it was dearer. So you can imagine my disapointment. I would like to point out that I have found that most bread will last a week if kept in the proper conditions. So I wonder what went wrong this time.Sorry but will think twice in future before purchasing Kingsmill again.
KINGSMILL TASTY WHOLEMEAL BREAD.
When I was last visiting my mum, she made a plate of sandwiches, with salmon and cucumber, and I can remember asking her what bread it was I was eating as it was really lovely, fresh and tasty and enhanced the taste of the sandwich too.
I must admit that I do tend to make my own bread, as I have a breadmaker which my son brought me as a presant a few years ago, but when I am either feeling a bit lazy, short of time I will pick up a loaf of bread, already sliced and tend to go for the Kingsmill loaves, because it is a name that I trust and as I said I had already tried this before, and was so pleased with the results that it had.
The loaf I had for my tuna and salad sandwiches, is this loaf and it cost £1.00, the loaf I have is medium sliced.
The reason that i personally purchased this bread, is because it is wholemeal and is a great source of Fibre, and it is good to have a certain amount of this in my diet. It helps my digestive system too.
This bread is great because it contains no Artificial Flavours or Preservatives.This bread is bakes with wholemeal flour, kibbled malted wheat. I think that the taste is perfect for sandwiches, and hot buttered toast to die for.
Apparently two slices of this bread will provide you with one hundred percent of your daily wholegrain.
Wholemeal Flour, Water, Kibbled Malted Wheat, Yeast, Sugar, Wheat Protein, Vegtable Oil, which is good for me as I dont get on to well with eating sunflower oils.
Salt, Malted Barley Flour, Vinegar, Fermented Wheat Flour, Soya Flour, Emulsifiers, and sixty one percent Wholegrain.
Store in a cool dry place, it does say not to keep refridgerated.
Also if you keep it in a warm place the shelf life will not last as long.
This bread is suitable for homefreezing, I have always got a loaf in my freezer just in case I run out of mixture, yeast etc to bake my own or just fancy a change or an easier option. It always thaws out just fine, although you should consume within three months.
Kingsmill has a careline telephone printed on their packet.
Also they have a website www.lovekingsmill.com.
What lovely bread this is, it is made at Allied Bakeries in Maidenhead.
This packet contains 800grams.
Well i love it and it is a good tasty bread indeed.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
I usually buy 50/50 bread for all the family, I have rievarious wholemeal breads but always gone back. I want the goodnesss of wholemel for us but i don't want the bland, dry taste e are often given.
Visting mum over Christmas she made myself and and my two year old a few slices of 'Kingsmill Tasty Wholemeal' toast (neither of us eat toast or sandwitches... we just don't enjoy bread!) and we were both suprised.
The margerine had melted into it perfectly, it was warm, soft and very tasty! I couldn't get enough we ended up sharing five slices between us! I can't stand hard toat when the topping sits on top instead of sinking in, and by the time you've spread its cold and makes millions of crumbs. But this, this was the start of something exciting!!!
I hve since been into the local supermarket, bought three loafs (normally use one a week if that, have used one 'Kingsmill Tasty Wholemeal' in the last two days!) and had plenty of toast! I've even ventured out for a lettuce to make sandwitches!!!
I am very pleased to have tried this as it puts an end to my bread problems! I now have the goodness and the taste, yey!!
Kingsmill I associate with being on of the top bread makers alongside Warburtons and Hovis but was a bit let down by this loaf compared to normal wholemeal bread.
Each slice I thought looked very manufactured in its appearance, it was almost square as square as it could be, it didnt look much like a slice from a loaf, very well balanced, no air holes in the bread very consistent look.
£1.22 for a 800gram loaf, a few offers around at the moment 2 for £2 at tesco or 3 for £3 at asda
About the Taste?
I thought this was a bit dry, I know that wholemeal will taste a little dry but this was very dry in taste, it may be down to the wheat which is put in for extra flavour I was quite disappointed. It tasted a bit like a budget loaf and not a leading brand
Traffic lights have the fat and salt as amber and the sat fat and salt levels are low at green
Quite a dry loaf, for the price I think you are best off buying a budget brand at half the price
Kingsmill produce a large range of different breads as well as crumpets and more. I am a fan of white bread myself but I have become to like this wholemeal loaf just as much as the white bread they produce. IT has a lovely flavour and is really soft and fresh out the packet- ideal for sandwiches.
It comes in a cream and brown packet and you can see through to the bread in a transparent part. The bread is brown wholemeal bread with all the tasty ingredients. The packet easily opens and can be sealed with a metal wire or some other device that you can buy to keep it fresh. The bread is lovely and soft at first and fresh, which is great for amazing sandwiches.
The actual slices of bread are medium sliced - not too thick and not too thin. You can easily butter the bread without it ripping to pieces (depending on the butter too) but I find it goes lovely with 'I can't believe it's not butter'. I then like to add a range of toppings depending on my mood - egg, tuna, spreads, jam, meat and more. It provides a lovely base to any sandwich as it has a very wholesome lovely taste.
The bread is brown and full of goodness with little seeds and other ingredients that makes it so tasty. It's so fresh out the packet too that it's quite irresistible. I'd highly recommend it as it's healthier than white bread and tastes great. It costs just £1.20 for a loaf, which isn't bad and it will almost last through a week if you and your child are taking sandwiches to work and school.
Thanks for reading,
My Son brought a packet of 6 Kingsmill Tasty Wholemeal rolls today 23 Aug 2009, the best before date is 27 Aug 2009. Although the bread had a flavour, I felt that the flour gave that dry taste and lost a certain amount of the texture. This was two hours after buying and immediate consumption after opening the packet.
We have even tried to freeze bread and some put in a fridge, yet it still doesn't match up to Fresh from the bakery.
I feel prepacked bread and rolls do not have as longtime shelf life as fresh bread.
Tim' Tip: If you want to keep bread fresh, do not buy such a large loaf, that it takes you more than three days to eat and slice off what you want as you need it. Although the cost will be dearer to buy, at least you will enjoy the freshness and you may not waste as much.
I really love bread! I particularly adore white bread and can easily eat a whole loaf a day if I'm left with one! So of late I have been trying to be a bit healthier and so have opted to ditch my usual white bread and purchase wholemeal instead which is known to be better for us as it's richer in fibre and usually lower in fat etc and wholemeal is great to aid digestion and keep you regular too!
Clear, beige and brown bag and on it I'm told it is Kingsmill Tasty Wholemeal 'Medium' Bread that has no artificial flavours or preservatives and is a good source of fibre and contains 100% of daily recommended wholegrain per 2 slices of bread. On the back of the bag I'm told a bit about the product, nutritional information, ingredients and allergy advice is given, size is stated (800g), I'm told how to store it (it is suitable for home freezing), contact details for Kingsmill are given, I'm told it's suitable for Vegetarians and finally there is a bar-code on there. Very informative packaging this!
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Bag....
'Our Kingsmill tasty wholemeal is full of wholemeal goodness as it is baked with wholemeal flour and kibbled malted wheat. It's rich, malty taste is perfect for delicious sandwiches or hot buttered toast. In fact you can get 100% of your daily wholegrain in just 2 slices. Love bread. Love Kingsmill'.
Really, really surprisingly nice tasting actually and I didn't think I'd enjoy it at all! Large slices (about 21 slices) of light brown bread, robust but still fluffy with a nice slightly malted taste to it that isn't overwhelming but just adds a slight twist to the taste of it. The bread is medium thick, is great for sandwiches, it does toast but does go a bit crunchy (which I don't mind) and is great with sweet or savoury toppings, or fillings or whatever.
A really nice fresh tasting bread that is so very good for you at the same time! It stays fresh about 3-4 days if stored in an airtight container and is fine to be frozen for up to 3 months. Very nice!
Contains Wheat, Gluten, Barley And Soya.
