Lovely tangy marmalade, can be a bit watery sometimes. One of the best marmalades available,
OK but ...........
I had not had this for sometime but used to enjoy it, however when I ordered it recently, I felt that it was not as tasty as previously. The shreds are very fine and the overall taste is not the tangy, bitter orange flavour I remembered and loved. The jelly is of a very soft consistency, which in itself is not a problem for me but I do wonder if overall, the recipe has changed in terms of taste.
Having worked in a jam factory, I can assure you that Bon Maman is the best. Some British jams, and marmalades, are so full of additives it's like eating muck. I like the fact that Bon Mamn marmalade is fruity and a bit runny, unlike UK versions which are a stodgy jelly. Have been eating them for 20 years.
French Marmalade was always a tall order
There was a time when Marmalade really wasnt a word the French could comprehend and the best they could do was a sort of orange jam which seemed to involve treating oranges the same way they treated any fruit jam by just boiling up the whole fruit to a pulp with sugar resulting in a cloudy mess sans any rind or tang. This has come a long way from that and at least looks like marmalade should. The taste is a lot better too but sadly still doesnt hit the bar. While there is no doubting this is marmalade it somehow tastes watered down. There is no body to the flavour. Yes there is some tang and strips of pith but the orange taste is weak and the texture a bit watery.
Our favourite marmalade.
I have loved this brand for many years. I don’t no what’s happened. The amount of water the marmalade jelly is sitting in is ridiculous. Once opened I have always put it in the fridge and is used within a week or two. Also way to much sugar added
