“ Manufacturer: Asda / Type: Marmalade „
My favourite breakfast is marmalade on toast. Due to this fact I get through a ton of marmalade in a week which is why from time to time I opt for cheaper options so I bought this costing 44p a jar at Asda to try as they had ran out of my usual thick cut option of this marmalade that I really do enjoy!
454g glass jar with a green screw on/off lid/cap to the top of it. On the front of the jar there is a label and on that there is a photograph of a sliced orange and I am told that it is Asda Fine Cut Marmalade 'With thin orange shreds' and that it is suitable for vegetarians. Other information listed towards the sides of the jar includes ingredients and a nutritional chart being given a well as storage advice, the size being stated and contact details for Asda are given. Nice enough jar that is informative as it needs to be, this is!
The Marmalade Itself:
The marmalade appears gloopy in the jar and is a light yellowy transparent colour with tiny shards of orange peel liberally scattered throughout it. It smells very highly of oranges when opened with a nice sweetness and it's very easy to spread indeed.
The problem I have with this one is that the marmalade is so thin and when you spread it on warm/hot foods I.E toast it does turn watery. However it spreads with ease to be fair to it like I have previously stated.
Taste wise well yes it tastes of oranges of course. The shred within it isn't too soggy and has a bit of bite in the way of zest to it. However for me overall this is just too sweet though it is in a natural enough way to be fair but I could do with thicker orange shred to add more flavour to the whole thing really.
Nice enough sticky marmalade and if you appreciate a thin and sweet marmalade this could really tickle your taste-buds!
