I had some issues with JELL-O Kraft JELL-O Sugar Free Instant Pudding and Pie Filling Butterscotch flavor, but it still was delicious! I love butterscotch flavor and prefer it over all other flavors in puddings. Of course, I also prefer the ready-to-eat individual sized puddings that I can pull out of my fridge and eat right away for snacktime. I decided to try this one as it is not only sugar-free but also fat-free. I was expecting less than ideal flavor as most “diet” or “healthy” versions do not taste good! The box says 1/3 fewer calories than regular pudding.
The box says this pudding is done in seven minutes. I did not follow the directions to the letter as I do not keep fat-free milk at home, I use 2 percent milk, so that is what I used in this pudding. The directions say to whisk two cups of cold fat-free milk for two minutes, and then to pour into dishes and let it set for five minutes. The package makes four servings. A pudding parfait and pudding pie recipe are also on the box.
This pudding set up fine, but I was a little worried as whisking it, it looked really thin. Also, I could not get the powdered mix to incorporate into the milk easily, I whisked for a few extra minutes and still had lumps.
The taste was great; it tasted just like butterscotch pudding that I am used to eating. It did not taste fat-free or sugar-free. I did not care for the lumps of unincorporated pudding dry mix that I could not get whisked in. There were quite a few lumps throughout the pudding. It smelled like butterscotch as well. This pudding was creamy (if you overlook the lumps). This JELL-O pudding is a buttery golden color and delicious!
I would buy this again for the great butterscotch flavor and no sugar, but hope next time the dry mix will whisk in better! Recommended for anyone looking for sugar-free products, especially parents looking for lower sugar options for the children. You will be very happy with this one! (If you are a diabetic, please consult your doctor first.)
The nutritional facts per serving if you use fat free milk to make the pudding: calories 70, total fat 0, sodium 300 mg, sugars 0.
JELL-O Kraft JELL-O Sugar Free Instant Pudding and Pie Filling Butterscotch flavor tastes great. It does not taste sugar-free and fat-free, but it is! A great option if someone is trying to reduce or eliminate sugar from their diet.
