I went to grocery store today to buy some strawberry filling for my cake. My plan was to buy the strawberry jam, as I stood there, confused, I could not decide between strawberry jam, strawberry preserve or strawberry spread, regular or sugar free. I've never use this kind of filling in cake before. Please help, which one is the best for filling? Thank you.

I prefer seedless preserves.

I like seedless also, I don't think it really matters though

Don't get the sugar free, unless you are making a sugar free cake.

If you want large or whole pieces of fruit, get the preserves, otherwise, get the jam. And always get seedless, or, if seedless is not available, heat and strain to remove the seeds.

If it is some sort of filling, I usually get fresh or frozen fruit and then mix with the jam to cut through the sweetness.
