Crosse & Blackwell 4Kids Monsters University Jelly Pots are a new kids snack pot available in two flavours and are the same colours as the favourite characters from the film, Monster’s University.
We received two Monster’s University jellies featuring Sulley, which is a bright blue blackcurrant flavour and two Mike, which is a green apple flavour jelly. My two children were eager to try one of each and immediately were drawn to the characters on the top.
The first thing they noticed when they removed the outer cardboard wrapper was a fold up spoon. They were so excited and couldn’t wait to use the special spoon to eat it with. I personally think this is an excellent idea as it makes them a simple snack to easily put in a pack lunch or picnic without having to worry about spoons.
The Crosse & Blackwell jellies are made with real fruit juice and contain no artificial colours or preservatives. The jelly appeared softer and more wobbly than traditional jelly although this made it easier to break up and simpler for little ones to eat. I asked for their thoughts and got the reply “yummy in my tummy” from Miss M who rubbed her hand round in circles on her tummy as she spoke. Mister B then copied his big sister insisting his was yummy in his tummy too.
After tasting both flavours they both agreed that the apple flavour jelly pot one was nicer and if I was to buy any that is the one they would prefer. I would definitely consider buying these for pack lunches as I like to vary what they have and these are ideal especially with the included spoon. Great for picnics and days out too!
Also available are Toy Story fruit pots, something I will look out for so my children can try them – another great way to boost their healthy 5 fruit and veg a day!
