Is Hartleys sugar free jelly really free even if I eat it ALL?

    I'm making jelly with pineapple chunks, do I seriously only have to count the pineapple, the jelly is free? no matter how much I eat? I feel like I should count it as 1point just to be safe. HELP :)

    I believe the sugar free jelly is free - however don't try to make up jelly (crystals or normal) with pineapple because enzymes in the pineapple will stop it setting.

    This is why we eat pineapple with gammon - it digests protein!

    Yes, it's free and it's cheap!

    Go for it. I have one on the go all the time. As soon as one is finished I make up the next. Superb for those times when you open the fridge and think "what can I have?" The answer is JELLY.
    You can make it wobbly or thick and globby. You can add cranberry juice, skimmed milk or yogurt, fruit, goji berries, all sorts.
    I make one up with half a pint of boiling water. Defrost half a pack of frozen summer or forest fruits in a pyrex loaf shaped dish, pour over the cooling jelly and set. Then turn it out onto a pretty dish, decorate with some lovely soft fruits and maybe a few mint leaves, serve within a dish of low fat creme fraiche. No-one can believe it's "slimming food".
    Looks divine and tastes great too.
    Sometimes I have half a jelly, some fresh fruit chopped up, a WW yogurt or fat free natural yogurt and a sprinkling of cinnamon and pine nuts. Filling, tasty and good for you. Yum!

    I made some up with sparkling water - fizzy jelly! The kids weren't convinced though..
