Each of my four kiddos has his or her own discerning preferences when it comes to food.
But we don’t have any problems when it comes to choosing MARIGOLD fruit jellies which come in 7 great-tasting flavors – Peach, Aloe Vera, Golden Mango, Rambutan, Pineapple, Longan Almond, Orange and Yuzu! There is plenty of choice to please everyone.
Steffi loved her Mango jelly with fruits chunks while Stacci said the rambutans were juicy and nice in her Rambutan Pineapple jelly, and Leroy also enjoyed his “seedless” Orange jelly!
MARIGOLD fruit jellies have real fruits chunks, high vitamin C, and are way healthier choices than me allowing the kiddos to indulge in those artificially-flavoured mini jellies.
Little Louie sure cannot keep his hands off all the different jellies!
Did you know that there’s also Chocolate and Custard Caramel Milk Puddings in their other range!
It helps that these jellies are also conveniently packed in small twin-packs from which the kiddos can choose their favourite flavours and I need not worry about any wastage! Not that there would be any, for I love desserts too!
Read on to see how MARIGOLD faired in the taste test!
The tasting test
Steffi took her all-time favourite mango jelly which was filled with real mango pieces, and it got a big thumbs up from her.
Meanwhile, Leroy tried the tangy orange jelly with all the pulp but none of the seeds which he hates! It was great for me to not hear his grumblings about orange seeds anymore!
Stacci was kind enough to share some of her rambutan pineapple jelly with me even though she can REALLY eat.
Stacci: Mango Jelly is my favourite. I like the mango chunks and taste. Steffi: Longan is big and Jelly is yummy! Leroy: I like the orange jelly as its tangy and has no seeds!
Little Louie was not not going to let his siblings go without trying some from their cups but he ended up sharing a delicious chocolate milk pudding with mommy when he demanded more and more but had his requests turned down by his older brother and sisters!
Having tried MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH SELECT Yuzu Juice before, I am not surprised to see that the company has included Yuzu as one of the jelly flavours. It is one of the most aromatic citrus flavours that I have tasted, and so is the Yuzu jelly which is made from real Yuzu juice and it comes with Nata De Coco for that added kick!
Steffi was obviously in jelly heaven while Stacci tucked into her cup. And mommy’s boy Leroy shared a scoop with mom!
With these delicious jellies, our dinner ended on a sweet note for everyone.
While the clear jelly that encases the fruits chunks is soft and easy for kids to dig into, the second layer of the firmer colored jelly adds an interesting contrast in texture. We actually ended up eating them by the layers!
The milk puddings which are low in fat and made from all-natural ingredients are just perfect for me, who loves desserts.
After all who can ever stop at one portion when it comes to desserts!
Remember the MARIGOLD Jelly & Pudding jingle?
It goes like this, “give me one, give me one, give me one more!” and is just so apt for me!
With no added preservatives and colouring, and available in ready-to-eat cups with easy-to-peel covers and spoons, I am pretty sure that MARIGOLD range of fruit jellies and puddings will definitely be a welcome treat for the kiddos and adults alike, especially when out on a picnic or gathering!
All I can say is: We tried, we loved!
