Tesco Value Orange Marmalade
Advantages: Nice on toast or used for baking.
I have bought this marmalade quite a few times. It is cheap and one that I like quite a lot. It is from the Value range from Tesco's and it is one of their lowest brands in the supermarket. When I first bought it I wasn't too sure if it would have a nice taste but I thought it was worth a try.
It comes in a glass jar with a screw off lid. It just has a basic looking label on the front with the usual colours of the Value range. The marmalade is a nice orange colour and does look quite nice inside the jar in my opinion.
The texture of the marmalade is quite firm, it does not have a runny consistency and drip from the spoon when spooning it out of the jar. It is very easy to spoon out from the jar too. It contains small orange peel and the peel is quite thin and not just a sliced cut of the peel, it is a nice shaving in the marmalade, but it is not quite as many as a branded one but still a good amount for the price. It has a really nice smell of oranges and one that is a really nice pleasant smell and full of the citrus smell.
For a 454g jar, it cost just 27p. An excellent price for a maramalade. When I first bought it, I expected it to be quite hard to spread on toast etc but I couldn't have been more wrong. This one is very easy to spread with a knife on toast or even bread. It does not tear the bread because it is quite soft. There is nothing worse than bread tearing when applying marmalade because it can be so annoying but that doesn't happen with this one.
It has a really nice taste to it and one that has a good taste of oranges. The taste is not at all bland like I imagined. It is also not too sweet and is just the correct amount of sweetness for a cheaper brand of marmalade. It is also not a bitter taste like some other brands. I love this on toast and I have often used it to make a cake. The marmalade is a nice addition to cakes and gives for a really nice taste with this brand in the cake. Only 2 or 3 tablespoons in the mixture gives for enough taste for the cake and the taste is very apparent once the cake is baked and tastes delicious too.
Like I said I love this on toast and it is a really nice breakfast one. It is so affordable for any budget for the very cheap price. What I really like about it is the way it stays firm when the lid is replaced and it does not turn to mush after a while. It is always as fresh and with a nice texture every time the jar is removed.
Each tablespoon it contains, 38 calories, 7.7g of sugar and no fat at all. The sugar amount is quite high but it does not taste too sweet for the amount.
It is also suitable for vegetarians too.
The jar is best stored in a cool, dry place to help preserve it and keep it nice and fresh for when you want to eat it.
My little grandson loves this one on toast too. He can easily eat it and he likes the taste of the orange content. For this reason and for the taste I just cannot fault this one. It is extremely good quality and excellent value for money in my opinion.
I think if you only occasionally eat marmalade and waste most of the contents of the jar, this one would not have cost too much and so a lot of money wouldn't have been wasted in my opinion.
I will continue to buy this one in the future because it gives me all of the taste that I expect from a cheaper brand of marmalade. I highly recommend it for anyone to give it a taste and bypass the price thinking it is an awful tasting one. It is a give away price in my opinion for a lovely tasting brand of marmalade on the market.
The jar can be recycled too.

I give this one 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
