Sugar Free Hartley's Apple Jelly

When I first became vegetarian I avoided all jelly products, I didn't even think it worth looking at the ingredients because I simply assumed that they would contain gelatine. Obviously i knew that vegetarian gelatine existed, but I didn't think that a major company such as Hartley's would use such a product. On a whim, I decided to just double check the ingredients, and to my great surprise, they were indeed vegetarian (or at least a few flavours were, which I will also list at the end of this post).
Now, onto the review! I opted for the sugar free apple flavour which comes in at a fabulously low seven calories. Initially I was concerned that because of this lack of calories it would taste awful and nothing like apple, but I was wrong. The flavour is really sweet and tastes a lot like apple, there is a good wobble to it and tasted best when freezing cold right out of the fridge. Not that big a fan of it when warm but I don't like jelly at room temperature so this is a personal preference.
