Review of Hartley’s 10 Cal Cranberry & 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 recently purchased some Hartley’s 10 cal jelly as it was on offer to try.

I liked the simplicity of the packaging with a Purple Heart and circles. The jelly itself comes in a cup style plastic container meaning that you can see the jelly inside. 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 a vegetarian diet.

On opening the lid and a very faint aroma of what I would describe as being similar to summer berries. I wouldn’t describe as cranberry and raspberry but it was still very pleasant. This didn’t change on my famous close up sniff test. I placed my spoon into the pot. The jelly had a nice wobble noted. However, it did have the tendency to fall of my spoon back into the pot. As for the flavour of the jelly it was very similar to the aroma. It tasted a bit similar to summer berries I could taste a hint of raspberries but struggled with the cranberry. To be honest I enjoyed the flavour so this didn’t bother me at all.

So would I recommend this jelly? Yes I would. I enjoyed everything about this jelly from the aroma through to its flavour and texture. It’s also a bonus that it is low in calories. So thank you Hartley’s for producing a jelly that I can enjoy.

  4. Oooh I’ve never tried it but I do have a bit of a sweet tooth so I must give it a try sometime! Sounds like a nice combination of berries x

  5. Hi Chloe, I do like a nice jelly (with ice cream usually) and this little pot looks perfect for on the go. I’m sure it was Hartleys orange flavoured jelly chunks I used to enjoy eating just as they were (before being dissolved), you’re right you are never too old for jelly!

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
