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.

    Jelly always reminds me of my childhood. It was the go to birthday party treat with ice cream. I must admit that as an adult I’ve rarely eaten it, but could be persuaded for the cranberries 😉 #thatfridaylinky x

      Hi, it is the same for me. It was the treat for me minus the ice cream.

    Cranberry and raspberry sounds nice- I have not noticed this flavour before. What a great idea as a snack- and low in calories too! #FabFridayPost

    I used to love jelly as a child. Back then we used to get different flavours of jelly in small plastic bowls.
    Raspberry and cranberry jelly sounds good. I haven’t eaten it yet. But qould love to eat it some day. 🙂

    I love jelly and that it’s low calorie too! I’ve also discovered muller light yoghurts – the lemon one with merengue pieces is divine and only 99 calories! Thanks for joining in with #ThatFridayLinky

    I generally love Hartley’s jelly pots but I’ve not seen these 10Cal ones. Cranberry and raspberry is my go-to soft drink/fruit tea flavour so I’m going to have to look out for these now!

    The 10cal Orange jelly has a much better flavour. I struggled to keep this on my spoon too. It’s a very floppy and wet consistency. Not up my street unfortunately.

    I often put jelly pots in the children’s lunch boxes but haven’t come across this flavour. Cranberry and raspberry juice is my favourite, so I’m sure I’d love the jelly too. #mmbc

      Hi, I am afraid that is not a spread it is equivalent to jello, just different terminology that we have in the UK.

    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!
