Hartley’s Jelly Fruit in Jelly & 10 Cal Jelly Pots Review
Britain’s favourite jam and jelly brand Hartley’s has been feeding the nation from breakfast to after dinner snack for over 140 years. I’ve had their jam lots of times but had never tried their jelly before now. Being Swedish, jelly is not something I’ve grown up with other than as sweets or mini jelly pots from Japan (that I love!).
Hartley’s latest jelly ranges are the Fruit in Jelly Pots and the 10 Cal Jelly Pots. The Fruit in Jelly pots are a combination of jelly and pieces of fresh fruit. They can be enjoyed as a snack or a dessert and the size makes them perfect for lunch boxes too. They come in 120 gram pots and I’m happy to say that these are suitable for vegetarians. I’m a vegetarian and there are so many jelly products that I can’t have due to gelatine or colourings.
I’ve tried three different flavours of Fruit in Jelly Pots — Peach in Strawberry Jelly, Apple in Blackcurrant Jelly and Raspberry in Raspberry Jelly. My favourite was definitely the peach and strawberry combination! Very summery and refreshing, cold out of the fridge. I didn’t really like the apple pieces as the apple was quite floury and I prefer crispy apples but the blackcurrant jelly was nice. The double raspberry combination was a success too.
The 10 Cal Jelly Pots are fat free and under 10 calories each making them an ideal guilt-free snack for people on a diet. There are lots of flavours to choose from. Not all of these are suitable for vegetarians, unfortunately, so I’ve had to give them to my husband. Some of the flavours are suitable for vegetarians though. They are Mango & Passionfruit, Blueberry & Blackcurrant and Raspberry. Out of the three flavours that we had — Strawberry, Orange and Mango & Passionfruit — the latter was the best one.
I’ll definitely be getting the Peach in Strawberry Jelly again — it was delicious!
