“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Jelly „
This review is for Morrisons Value strawberry jelly. My son asked for some jelly last week so I picked up a pack whilst in Morrisons last week. For one 128g pack of the strawberry flavour it cost a whole 6p, Can't grumble at that really.
The jelly comes in a slab form of 12 cubes.
The packaging is in yellow with green writing. No fancy pictures or logos on this value product.
I couldn't do the review until we'd actually made and tasted it which we have now done.
To make the jelly up simply break up the cubes of jelly into a bowl or jug. Add boiling hot water to the half pint mark and stir carefully until all the cubes have completely dissolved. The top up to the 1 pint mark with cold water. Pour into your chosen bowl dish or mould and put into the fridge to set. My mould choice or rather my son's was a plastic rabbit mould. It took approx 2 1/2 hours to be completely set and ready to serve.
whilst making it I could strongly smell the strawberry flavour. The colour did not seem as bright red as other jellies I've made, It seemed like it had less colours added to it.
I struggled to get the jelly out of mould and there was no way it looked like a rabbit by the time I had it all out, not unless you refer to a rabbit on the road after being squashed, sorry. I don't think this is the make of jelly but unsure as normally use a glass mould.
Now the taste was of strawberry but again like the colour not as strong as other makes.
Served with ice cream I had no issues with this very cheap dessert.
It wobbled just the same as any other jelly does...
This does contain gelatine but doesn't state which type and as it does not say suitable for vegetarians I'd say it is meat based gelatine.
100g of the solid jelly cubes contain 226 calories so really unsure how you convert that to made up jelly.
These have a long date on them which is a year later so easy to buy some to stock up, I mean 10 would cost 60p lol.
