The best sugar free jelly that we’ve tried (4 wobbly options)

Published by Finn Hayden

Jelly is an excellent snack for people who are trying to watch their weight. It's tasty, it's usually low in calories, and, let's face it, it's pretty fun to eat as well.

The one slight drawback with jelly is that it often tends to be quite high in sugar. For people who want to avoid sugar as well as calories, this often means that they'll avoid jelly completely.
But for people who want to eat jelly without any sugar, there are lots of excellent sugar free jelly options out there for you to try. We wanted to round up the best that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

Robinsons Real Fruit Jelly (No added sugar)

Robinsons is best known as a squash brand, but the jelly from the brand is actually really good, and it's made without any added sugar. It's also made using real fruit, and comes in these very handy little pouches. This jelly is also suitable for vegans and is low in calories, with just 5 calories per pouch in the Orange flavour.

Chivers is actually an Irish brand of jelly, but you can buy it via Amazon in the UK, and we definitely had to include it in this list because it's so excellent. Not only is this jelly totally sugar free, but it's also made without any artificial colours or flavours, and it's also fat free. We're also pleased to say that this jelly is also vegetarian, as instead of gelatine it is made using gelling agents such as Xanthan Gum. The texture of this jelly is great and the same as what we'd expect from a jelly made with sugar and gelatine, but it's the taste of the Strawberry flavour which really impressed us - the natural taste really comes through.

Hartleys Sugar Free

Hartleys is probably the biggest jelly brand in the UK, and the 10 Calorie pots of jelly from this brand are very popular with people who are looking for a healthy snack. But not many people realise that this brand also makes a very good sugar free jelly. Available in crystal form or in ready-made pots, this jelly is made using sweeteners and natural colours, we find that the sugar free jelly from Hartleys tastes almost exactly the same as the standard jelly from the brand. We tried the Strawberry flavour most recently, but there are 5 flavours to choose from, including a really tasty Lemon & Lime variety. Learn more and buy it here -

Vimto jelly

If you're a fan of Vimto then we highly recommend trying the no added sugar variety of jelly from Vimto. This jelly tastes exactly like Vimto, and just like the drink, it's made using real fruit juice. It's also made using natural colours, but still has that iconic purple colouring to it. We really loved the taste and really couldn't tell that the jelly didn't contain any sugar. Also, each pot of this jelly contains 30 calories, which is very low. Learn more and buy it here -

Royal Desserts

Royal Desserts is actually an American brand of jelly, but you can find this brand available to buy in certain places here in the UK, and it's pretty easy to find online too. The sugar free jelly from Royal Desserts is made using gelatine and we could only find it in 1 flavour, which was lime. The jelly has a great wobbly texture and the taste was really sharp, which is how we like our lime jelly to taste. Learn more and buy it here -


We hope this guide helps you to find a great sugar free jelly to enjoy. Let us know if you've tried any of these or if you have any other suggestions for us to try like the ones we've recommend above.
