      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a great all round product for children (& husbands!)

      I bought these for my children, aged 4 and 2 as a healthy ish pudding. They are made from real fruit juice and have no artificial flavours and colourings in them so they seemed ideal for little ones.
      The packs of 6 contain 3 flavours, orange, strawberry and blackcurrant and are usually on offer in Sainsbury for 2 for £2 which is good value for twelve puddings in my opinion.
      They smell very strong when you take the lid off, a bit like undiluted squash, however this does not put the children off! On the contrary, the love the fruity flavours and always ask for jelly for pudding now.
      The pots are just the right size for children of this age and can be put in the lunchbox for later in the day without suffering too much. I don't eat jelly myself but have had good reports on taste from children and husband and I'm happy with the ingredients so these are a regular in our trolley!

      Disadvantages

      Only for jelly lovers.

      Last time we were in Tesco with the kids we were in a hurry as they were tired. There were a lot of people and it was difficult to move. We ran out of children's yogurt so we entered the dairy product aisle and I put 2 usual Müller Little Stars yogurt in the trolley and I found that there is a new version with orange. I bought 2 of it as well. I haven't realised that it was jelly.

      We came home and gave the children dinner then as a treat a yogurt. After opening it I found that it was a jelly. I tried to tell them that this is a new treat but I couldn't convince my elder son to taste it. The younger one ate 3 spoons of it and that is all. We started with the strawberry one. I had to eat myself as I didn't want to throw it out. Well I have to admit that I understand why my son refused eating it.


      Price and package
      -----------------------
      Müller Little Stars Jelly comes in a pack of 6 snap-apart plastic pots. The pots are wrapped in a cardboard sleeve. There are three different flavours in a pack: strawberry, orange and blackcurrant. Müller offers a Peppa Pig book worth 3.99 pounds if you send the code from the inside of the cardboard sleeve on their website: www.littlestarspeppapig.co.uk.

      I think these jellies are available in most of the supermarkets. In Tesco and in Sainsbury's is on offer: 2 packs for 2.5 pounds. As their individual price is 1.52 in Sainsbury's and 1.50 in Tesco.



      Taste and texture
      ----------------------
      The jelly itself looks appetising. It has lovely fruity smell and wobbly consistency. What I didn't like was its taste. The strawberry was terrible. I could hardly eat a pot of 75 grams (minus 3 spoons thanks to my younger son). Today we tried the orange one. That was slightly better and so was the blackcurrant flavour. My sons don't even taste it. I opened for them and I had to eat myself. We have 9 pots of jelly and I think I should make a fruit cake...


      Ingredients:
      ----------------
      Water, Fructose, Fruit Juices From Concentrate (8%) (Strawberry, Lemon), Gelatine, Natural Flavourings, Natural Colour: Carmines.

      They are relatively healthy and they contain some fruit juices.


      Nutritional information
      -------------------------------
      One pot of jelly contains 37.5 kcal energy which is quite law. It contains 11.3% sugar and 1% protein. The jellies are made with only five ingredients and they don't contain any artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives.


      My opinion
      ----------------
      I think this was the first and the last time I bought my sons jelly. They don't like its texture and don't want to taste it. The strawberry was the weakest in the trio but you can feel that the fruit content of the jelly is very low. I will look at the yogurts more carefully next time because this purchase wasn't really successful.

        Disadvantages

        A great dessert for anyone with a sweet tooth

        My baby recently tried some of my jelly dessert and I didnt want it to become a regular thing, so I went on the hunt for an alternative just for her.

        These little jellies come in a six pack with three flavours - strawberry, blackcurrant and orange, and are the perfect size for a baby or young child at 75g each pot.

        They are made with 100% natural ingredients, of which there are just five; water, fructose, fruit juice, gelatine and natural flavourings.

        I generally manage to get them on special offer in Sainsburys with two packs costing just £3, making them very good value for money.

        My daughter loved the texture and taste immediately. They are not as firm as jelly made from cubes,and have more of a slippery, juicy consistency which was a big hit with her.

        I tried some and I really liked them too as they have a good flavour but are not too overpowering or artificial tasting.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good treat

        My daughter is a big Jelly fan. I used to make my own with fruit juice but have now discovered these and am impressed.

        What I dislike about the block jellies and some other jellies you can get in pots is that they do not really taste of fruit they have an artificial taste and also can be really sweet .

        I bought the Jelly pots from Sainsburys they are currently 2 packs of Muller little stars for £2 so reasonably priced. You get 6 jellies in the pack and they are a nice size for kids. I hate it when I get my daughter a normal sized yoghurt or jelly and she leaves half of it its such a waste.

        You get 3 flavours in the pack strawberry, orange and blackcurrant and they actually taste of the fruit they say they are which is nice they are sweet but not too sweet. The jelly is not too runny and my daughter finds it easy to eat, sometimes jelly can be a bit of a mission for her when it keeps falling off the spoon.

        Its states on the pack that the jelly only has 5 ingredients all of which are natural which is nice to know as you are not filling them with sugar and artificial colourings!

        I think they are great for a quick snack or a treat after dinner. She prefers them to the yoghurts only problem is that we have to try and stop her Dad from getting to the pack first!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Take advantage of the Peppa Pig book offer with special packs.

        Although marketed with toddlers in mind, I buy packs of Muller Little Stars Jelly for my 6 year old daughter as a sweet treat for her lunch box.

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Price and availability
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        Packs of Little Stars Jelly are readily available in most good supermarkets and can be found in the chiller aisle alongside the yoghurt and fromage frais products. At the moment Asda are running a promotion where you can buy any 3 packs of Muller Little Stars products for just £3, which is quite good value for a branded dessert.

        ~~~~~~~~
        Packaging
        ~~~~~~~~

        The jelly itself comes packaged in 75g small snap-apart plastic pots which are welded together inside a recyclable cardboard outer sleeve. At the moment if you collect 4 special codes from the inside of promotional packs you can go online and claim a free Peppa Pig book worth £3.99. A fantastic offer if your little one is into this lovable character.

        ~~~~~~~
        The jelly
        ~~~~~~~

        The jelly inside the pots comes in three delicious flavours - Strawberry, Orange and Blackcurrant. You get two pots of each flavour. Upon peeling back the lid, you are greeted with a pleasant fruity aroma and visually, the jelly has a lovely wobbly consistency. Each jelly, regardless of the flavour looks appetising, the colours are subtle and the fruity flavours are delicious

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Nutritional information
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        These real fruit juice jellies are made with 100% natural ingredients with no artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives. With less than 50 kcal per individual pot, I think they are great as children can enjoy a lovely sweet treat without the calories.

        ~~~~~~~~~
        Conclusion
        ~~~~~~~~~

        I would highly recommend Muller Little Stars Jellies as they look nice, taste nice and are a relatively healthy sweet treat that can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Each pack individually priced at £1.48 is a little on the expensive side but if you can get them on promotion for around £1 a pack they represent excellent value for money.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great for those packed lunches

          I stumbled across these Muller Little Stars Jellies when my daughter was starting playgroup. I needed to provide her with a packed lunch and I was looking for food that she would find fun and be excited about eating that wasn't packed full of rubbish and a long way from chocolate and crisps.

          I had seen the advertising campaigns for the Muller Little Stars Products and was aware that they are free from artificial colours or preservatives contain no artificial flavours and also contained real fruit juice. This stance of 'no rubbish' really appealed to me and I was sure that she would enjoy jelly in her packed lunch as I had always loved it as a child.

          I bought the jellies from my local Tesco's and I believe they were £1.59 for a pack of 6, which I do believe is a little pricey. The Little Stars product are frequently on offer though at £2.50 for 2 packs so I tend to buy them when offers are running. You get six of the jellies in a pack - 2 strawberry, 2 blackcurrent & 2 orange.

          My daughter was not too sure when tried them for the first time, she had never tasted jelly before and I think she found the texture a little strange and it did take a little persuasion. Before too long though she absolutely loved them and they became the part of her packed lunch that she was most excited about.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good dessert.

          These little jellies are lovely. When I saw them on offer in Tesco for 79p for 6 I thought I would try them out on my daughter for her dessert.

          The first taste didn't go down well, I think she found the texture a bit strange! However, the second try was wolfed down and we are now on our second pack of them.

          As a Mum I like them because they don't have any added sugar and are made with natural fruit juice with no additives.

          In a pack of 6 you get 2 orange, 2 strawberry and 2 blackcurrant.

          Also as a jelly is mainly water I tend to give these if she isn't drinking her water too well that day to help keep her hydrated.

          One thing I have found is that maybe the pots could be a little bigger as I have found I need to give the jelly a bit of a stir before feeding so that it breaks up a bit or we loose it off the spoon in big chunks. As it is I have to do it really carefully or the jelly end up over the side of the pot.

          My daughter has not had any reaction to them and gets her 'excited arms' waving when she sees the pot coming now!

          I haven't personally tried them as I am vegetarian but my husband has tried them and thinks they are yummy.

            gorgeous little pots of fruity heaven!

            I bought these jellies when they were on offer at Sainsburys, 2 packs of 6 for £2 not a bad price thought me, so in the trolley they went!


            These are made for children as they are a healthy alternative to most jellys but I bought them for me and my fiance as he's a big kid really and won't eat fruit so at least he was getting a bit of fruit juice from these!

            In the pack of 6 there are 2 blackcurrant, 2 strawberry and 2 orange jellies. My favourite are orange, his favourite are blackcurrant but we both enjoy all of them!
            I make him share the flavours equally!


            They are called 'Muller little stars, fruit juice jellies'.


            Ingredients
            ~~~~~~~~~
            The ingredients of these jellies are all natural and this is obviously the main selling point of these from the TV and magazine adverts and the packaging.

            As I said his fave flavour is blackcurrant and I have just been to the fridge to grab one of each to look at ingredients and there are only orange and strawberry left! tut tut!


            So the ingredients for the strawberry and orange ones:

            *Strawberry: Water, Fructose, Fruit juice from concentrate: strawberry and lemon (8%) gelatine, natural flavouring, natural colour: Carmines.

            *Orange: water, Fructose, Fruit juice from concentrate: Orange and Lemon (8%), gelatine, Natural flavouring, natural colour: Annatto.

            Don't really know why lemon juice is included in both, am curious now as to whether its in the blackcurrant one too!

            So all natural ingredients, no E numbers and 8% fruit juice, not bad for a jelly!

            **These are not strictly speaking suitable for vegetarians because of the gelatine in them, but gelatine is used in every jelly and is the base of it!**


            The taste
            ~~~~~~~~~
            These are gorgeous, as you would expect from Muller they are great quality.
            They taste really fruity and not too sweet so you would feel safe giving them to your kids in the knowledge there are no E numbers or added sugars/sweeteners.

            The colours are not too bright either which makes you feel better than eating neon foods. They look really appetising and there is a faint smell of fruit but not too strong.

            The taste is again not too strong or acidic, but strong enough to recognise the flavour of the fruit. A really lovely jelly.

            Would be great for your kids lunch boxes as a healthy treat that i'm sure all kids will love (even your big kids, my big kid is 33!!).


            The packaging
            ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
            The jellies are 75g each in little white pots, the jellies aren't huge but I think its enough especially for a child.

            The lids are very cute with a design of little people/creatures made from the fruit in the said jelly!

            The six pots are then packaged in a cardboard carton, they are decorated with the little fruity creatures which I could see would appeal to kids.


            Prices
            ~~~~~~~~
            I have checked on www.mysupermarket.co.uk for the current prices and included these for you:

            Tesco: £1.48 for a pack of 6.

            Sainsburys: £1.48 or 2 packs for £2.

            ASDA: £1.58 for 1 pack or 2 for £2.

            Ocado: £1.42 for a pack or 3 for £3.


            So at most of the major supermarkets there is an offer on these jellies so you can grab a bargain!!



            A really tasty jelly for kids of all ages, definitely recommend to all!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Lovely!!!

              I have never been able to successfully make a jelly from scratch so I normally buy the jelly squares that you add boiling water to and then put in the fridge to set overnight, they're easy and they come in a range of flavours but sometimes I like to take them out when I go for a picnic with my husband so I buy little pots of jelly because a big bowl is not easy to carry around.

              Muller Little Stars Jelly are actually aimed at kids but I think they taste pretty nice and therefore buy them quite often. They cost £1.58 for a packet of 6 pots of 75g jellies which is a lot more expensive than making it from the little cubes is but it is not a bad price for a jelly in a pot. The reason I chose these ones over all the others is that they seem to be pretty healthy as they are made from 100% natural ingredients and real fruit juice plus there are only 5 ingredients so you really do know what you are getting in these jellies and you can be sure that there are no nasty chemicals etc. Plus they are Free From Artificial Colours, Free From Artificial Preservatives, Free From Nuts and Suitable for Coeliacs!

              The 6 little pots are all stuck together and have a piece of cardboard wrapper around them like a lot of yoghurts do to protect them. On the cardboard are some sweet little animal pictures made of fruit jumping around in a field, I can see why kids would find these attractive. Upon turning the jellies upside down you will see that the bottom of the cardboard is covered in ingredients and nutritional information. When you take off the cardboard do it carefully because on the inside of the cardboard is a picture which your kids can colour and then cut out to use as a puppet so not only is this a great snack but it's something fun to do as well.

              The jellies are in 3 flavours and there is 2 of each, they are;

              Strawberry - Water, Fructose, Fruit Juices From Concentrate (8%) (Strawberry, Lemon), Gelatine, Natural Flavourings, Natural Colour: Carmines

              Orange - Water, Fructose, Fruit Juices From Concentrate (8%) (Orange, Lemon), Gelatine, Natural Flavourings, Natural Colour: Annatto

              Blackcurrant - Water, Fructose, Blackcurrant Juice From Concentrate (8%), Gelatine, Natural Flavourings

              These are less than 50 calories in each pot so you don't need to worry about it being unhealthy. They taste very nice, you can really tell that they are made from natural ingredients and real fruit juice because a very fresh and they don't taste at all fake, they're very fruity and a pleasure to eat. They look very nice too, a light colour and very wobbly like all good jelly should be. These are recommended for children of 6 months plus but as I've already said I like to eat them as they may be small but they are tasty and easy to carry around. Not a fan of jelly? Well the Muller Little Stars range also make yogurts in a few different varieties so give those a try as they taste just as good as these jellies. I give these jellies 10 out of 10.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Healthier and quicker than make-your own jelly cubes

                I feed my daughter fresh, homemade food wherever possible. If I do use ready prepared foods I try to make sure they're healthy and aren't packed with sugar and artificial colours or preservatives.

                When she was 6 months old I was looking out for foods to get her used to different textures. I had an Annabel Karmel recipe for homemade jellies, but didn't have time to be messing about making my own. So when I saw these in Tesco, they fit the bill perfectly.

                Muller Little Stars fruit juice jellies are made with 100% natural ingredients, she loves them and as soon as she sees me take the pot out of the fridge she starts clapping and shouting.

                The minute you peel the lid off the wonderful fruity smell hits you, and I've sneaked a taste on more than one occasion.

                They come in packs of 6 small 75g pots, 2 x strawberry, 2 x orange and 2 x blackcurrant.

                The list of ingredients read as:
                Water, fructose, fruit juices from concentrate, gelatine, natural flavourings and natural colourings.

                They retail at £1.42 at Tesco and are sometimes on offer, e.g 2 for £2.00.
