Review of co-op raspberry jelly

I have always enjoyed jelly and it was often the only safe dairy free treat I could have at parties. I love the fact that you can easily pick up ready made jellies from supermarkets. I particularly like the ones that have fruit with the jelly. So when I saw that the co-op had a fruit jelly as part of their lunch deal I had to give it a go.

I liked the simplicity of the packaging. The jelly itself comes in a cup style plastic container meaning that you can see the jelly inside. It had a nice scattering of raspberries in the middle of the jelly. There were no allergens listed on its ingredients label it was therefore suitable for a dairy free diet. It is also labelled as being suitable for vegans.

On opening the lid and a very faint sweet artificial aroma which I wouldn’t describe as raspberry was noted. I placed my spoon into the pot. The jelly was of a medium gooey consistency with no real wobble noted. I had a couple of spoonful’s of the jelly before I hit the raspberries which was a nice change compared to the other jellies that I have previously tried. As for the flavour of the jelly it was a tad bland and I couldn’t really decide what flavour this actually was. If I was blind folded I wouldn’t have been able to tell you that it was raspberry. As for the raspberries these were a tad tart and added a little flavour to the jelly.

So would I recommend this jelly? I’m afraid not. The flavour was simply lacking and I certainly didn’t enjoy the texture. It didn’t really make a nice sweet treat on the go. Sorry co-op this jelly wasn’t for me.

      Hi, sadly it wasn’t the best jelly that I have tried. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment, Chloe.

    Meal deal jelly! I need some of that! It’s a shame it wasn’t all that good, it’s such a good snack!

    It’s a shame the taste doesn’t live up to the look. I love raspberry jelly.

      Hi, yes it was a little disappointing. At least there are other jellies to try.

    Oh dear, I may try this anyway as it’s vegan and I rarely get to have jelly! #bestandworst

    How disappointing! I always think of jelly as a bit of a treat, so it’s a shame when it doesn’t live up to expectations. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    Oh what a shame. I succeeded in making my own for the first time the other day… just a little bit proud! #bigpinklink

    Oh how disappointing! I love jelly and this would have left me upset that it didn’t fulfil my sweet tooth. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

      Never mind at least there are more jellies for me to try.

    What a shame that it was so poor! So disappointing although I do like the idea that it’s vegan, interesting to know m&s do vegan jelly too. Hopefully that’s better! Thanks for linking up with the #bigpinklink

    M & S is also vegan. I always suppose of jelly as a scrap of a goody, so it’s a ignominy when it doesn’t alive up to expectations.

      Hi, I love the M & S jelly its one of my favourites.
