Tesco Seedless Raspberry Jam
Advantages: Tastes rich in flavour
Disadvantages: Very tangy, very sticky indeed and does melt quite easily if your not careful
I absolutely love jam! Almost on anything as well lol. I've always really been quite conventional when it comes down to it and been stuck in a rut with strawberry jam for years now! Up until recently when my Mother told me she's made a mistake out shopping and picked up the wrong thing but I'd have to lump it! I was gutted and it took me ages to take the plunge and give this a whirl on toast..but I fell in love! lol.
454g glass see-through jar with a dark red and white label going across the middle and towards the back (but not quite meeting up). On the front of that in light gold, turquoise and black writing I'm told it is Tesco Seedless Raspberry Jam and there is a photograph of some rather tasty, fresh looking raspberries on there. Under that photo there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information on the jar includes ingredients and allergy advice, nutritional information is given, there is a recycle symbol and the weight is stated (as I've listed already), contact details for Tesco are given and finally there is a bar-code on there. There is a black lid at the top of the jar which simply twists on and off easily and it has a gold pop up button on it to let you know if the jar has been opened or tampered with and on that the best before date is clearly stamped on. Decent enough jar but nothing special but does tell you most of what you need to though, though I'm not told if it's vegetarian or not.
Dark burgundy with a hefty sweet, but natural whiff of fresh raspberries. When you first go to use the jam it is very set of course and the jar is rammed full of the stuff but as you use it it does become gloopy and it is best stored in the fridge because it will melt if left out and go really sloppy (even if a room or whatever isn't hot!).
Taste wise well it's sticky, fruity and sweet though not overly so. It has a slightly tarty, sour taste to it which makes me think this has a squirt of lemon or something citrusy in there to make it more tangy and on closer inspection of the ingredient list I can't see anything like that but I'm still convinced lol. It's very easily spreadable though not too thin and of course doesn't contain any seeds at all so is of smooth consistency.
A nice jam and it is good quality. May be too 'tarty' for some palettes but for mine I really like it. I like the fact that it not only tastes of raspberries but smells of them too and there's no mistaking what this is. Great on a sandwich, toast, crumpets, scones, anything really and not bad on the old hips neither! Makes a pleasant change so it does!
Nutritional Information Per Tablespoon....
Only available in Tesco stores priced at 99p and also available with seeds at the slightly cheaper price of 69p (same size).
Summary: A nice enough jam!
