Are you a fan of jelly beans? I love jelly beans! I can eat them by the handful. My favorite flavors are green and black. Yes, I love black licorice. I enjoy the fact that not too many people like that flavor, so they give me all of their black jelly beans to eat.
I usually have some jelly beans stashed inside our pantry. Sometimes my blood sugar drops. I have sugar pills and juice, but occasionally my kids drink all the juice, or I can’t locate my sugar pills. So I just eat (and enjoy!) a few jelly beans and that always does the trick.
Have you ever tired Jelly Belly jelly beans? They are amazing! They really do taste like the flavor they are suppose to be. I’d love to know how the brand makes such true-to-life flavors for their yummy jelly beans.
I find it interesting how you can mix Jelly Belly jelly beans together and create other flavors. For example, if you eat a caramel corn, two toasted marshmallow and one chocolate pudding Jelly Belly jelly bean, the flavors combined will taste just like a S’mores. Or a top banana, French vanilla, strawberry jam, chocolate pudding and very cherry combined to make a banana split flavor. Yum!
Jelly Belly has some gross flavors too (they are meant to be fun) like spoiled milk, rotten egg and lawn clippings. I believe those flavors are found in their Bean Boozled game. Eww!
Did you know that Jelly Belly also has gum now? I’m not talking about a bubble gum flavored bean (they do have one), but real chewing gum? They do!
Jelly Belly now sells chewing gum in a variety of delicious flavors such as Berry Blue, Island Punch, Watermelon and Very Cherry.
I was sent some Jelly Belly chewing gum to try out for myself.
The gum comes in rectangle shaped packaging. Inside each individual piece of gum is found in a blister pack. When you want a piece of gum, simply pop it out of the blister packaging.
Each package has 12 pieces of gum.
The gum is rectangle in shape and reminds me of Chicklet gum (do they even still make that gum?). It’s the same size and shape, except the Jelly Belly gum is white in color with some colored “specs” here and there.
I had the chance to try out Watermelon, Island Berry and Berry Blue. I enjoy all the flavors, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be Island Berry.
I don’t chew gum often, but I do find that when I am starting to wane a bit at my computer (like when I’m watching a movie or writing a blog post), if I pop a piece of gum in my mouth, it perks me up a bit and helps me to focus a bit better.
The chewing gum is available from various retailers. I did see it on Amazon.
