Jelly Belly Beans

Disadvantages: availability and price
I absolutely love Jelly Belly Jelly beans. They are without doubt my absolute favourite sweet in the whole world...
Jelly Belly Jely Beans "The original gourmet jelly beans" have 50 official flavours as well as sub ranges including Beanboozled, Sport Beans and Bean Naturals as well as no added sugar varieties. The 50 official flavours change according to popularity and their are rookie varieties on trial ready to take a spot.
Each Jelly Belly bean is marked with Jelly Belly. They are suitable for vegetarians and are dairy free and there are roughly 4 calories per bean. The beans have a firm texture- and are absolutely full of taste. The taste is what really make them stand out from other jelly beans, as they taste so realistic and are absolutely full of flavour.
Some of my favourite flavours are: Very cherry, Buttered Popcorn, Caramel Corn and Red Apple. But some of the other flavours include: Strawberry Jam, Crushed Pineapple, Caramel Apple, Pina Colada and Coconut etc. In fact there are bery few flavours I dont like and that is only due to personal preference.
Jelly Belly also have leaflets giving tasty 'recipe' combinations of different flavoured beans.
Jelly Belly also sell a range of other products co-ordinating with the flavours of the range including candles and air fresheners.

Jelly Belly Beans can be brought from their website and other select retailers including Ebay and Amazon and more specialist sweet shops. It is a real treat when you find a shop that sells them and I tend to stock up (i also have to online order to keep me going). If you buy from a sweet shop you can often put together your own pack pick and mix style. There are a range of premixed packs and gifts as well. Prices vary from greatly but they are expensive as sweets go. Online you can buy 4x 100g bags for £8.03.
I have to say I honestly think they are worth the money, they really do taste like what they are supposed to, they are a real treat to savour and enjoy. Rather than just a quick sugar fix. Once you have tried them you can never go back to regular jelly beans- they become an addiction.
Summary: Expensive worth it as far superior to other jelly beans
