Advantages Vegan. No Artificial colours, preservatives, flavours or sweeteners. Only 78 calories per lolly. 100% RDA for Vit 'C'.
Disadvantages Only sold in boxes of 4, so not available individually.
A chance for me to enjoy a respite and any relaxation is a rare occurrence during the school summer holidays, and to actually concur with some hot sunny weather is even more obscure. But just like a lottery win, these things do happen, and once the children had temporarily vacated the premises in order to pursue their hectic social lives, it was my prompt to hit the sun bed and lap up some rays.Twas a lovely day too, laying there, my mind drifting off to a fantasy beach on a fantasy isle... Somewhere tropical, where warm ebbing waters tickled white sandy shores. Basking in the sun and dreaming... aaaa this was the life... I was suddenly gripped by a desire to compliment my newfound freedom with my latest discovery whilst in Sainsburys, a Del Monte Pineapple 'Fruit Ice' lolly.
Although Del Monte now makes wide ranges of juices
The pineapple 'Fruit Ice' lolly I'm reviewing here only comes in one other flavour; Orange.The cardboard box is adorned in traditional Del Monte style, incorporating the Del Monte shield logo against a green background. Having consumed a fair few of these 'Pineapple' lollies already, I can verify that the quality generally associated with Del Monte products, is as evident as it ever was.
The box is a neat, brick-shape and size, with a detailed picture of what lies within boldly languishing across the front. The box's resilience is high, as proven by weathering the most brutal attacks by my children, whilst engaged in frenzied rummages in the freezer.The box also contains detailed nutritional information, which is rarely so impressive!
There's no mention of any 'E' numbers at all, and we're informed that these lollies are made with 75% pineapple juice from concentrate.
**A 'Del Monte Promise' states that these lollies are virtually fat free, that each lolly contains 100% of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin 'C', and that they DO NOT contain any artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or sweeteners.
