Jelly Bellys

Having Jelly Bellys in our office recently has reminded me how much love those cleverly-flavored jellybeans. While a lot of people have trouble dealing with some of the exotic tastes, I wholeheartedly love the popcorn and toasted marshmellow flavored Jelly Bellys. And when I get a jones for the popcorn jellybeans, watch out — just last week I bought 1 1/2 pounds to snack on during my drive to and from NJ.

Apparently, they’re trying out a bunch of new flavors as well — one I’d like to try is their French Vanilla flavor… if it’s anything as true tasting as their others, I think that might creep into my top three favorites. They also have a Dr. Pepper flavor that’s gotten good response.

What are your personal favorites? Do any of their recipes particularly please your taste buds? -ram

My personal favorite is Juicy Pear. Yummy! I always sneak at least one out of the bin when I go to the market.

I like the bubble gum and hot cinnamon. The buttered popcorn are good too.

Seems like a repeated 'coincidence' that the brand name beverage "Dr. Pepper" continues to pop up in Pings. Is this a conspiracy? Who's running this web site, anyway? The truth is out there.

I love the Cotton Candy and Green Apple flavors!

Hey, let's take a Dr. Pepper flavored Jelly Belly, heat it up, and see what it tastes like....

Imagine cocoa without the chocolate and without the flavor.

There is no Dr Pepper conspiracy, Tina. At least none I can tell you about.

Oh, like you'd admit it if there were a conspiracy. Your denial is PROOF!

I need jelly beans that I can eat by the handle-full, so I stay away from Jelly Belly.

I think I'm the only one who thinks the buttered popcorn is a crime against man.

Robert -

Trust me, you are not the only one who thinks so harshly about the buttered popcorn flavor. I've always hated it. It is, however, one of my father's two favorite flavors, along with jalepeno. One day, while innocently sitting at home and reading, I reached into what I assumed was my bag of jelly bellys, containing my favorite flavors (champagne punch, orange juice, red apple, grape jelly, ect.) and popped a few in my mouth without looking. Imagine my horror when the first bite revealed this to be my father's bag, and the look on my face as I raced to the kitchen in an attempth to wash the butterjalepenopopcorn taste out of my mouth.

The lesson? ALWAYS look at your snack food before you cram your face full of it.

Molly -- I feel the same way about the coffee jelly beans... they're so foul they can just ruin your day. :)

I see that the majority of you dislike the buttered popcorn, and will have to agree that buttered popcorn is a crime against man and woman too (being one myself.) HERE"S TO CHOCOLATE PUDDING

I got to try the Jelly Belly chocolate candies the other day. They've crossed Jelly Belly flavors with M&Ms. Some are good, some are bad, just like the jelly beans.

1 buttered popcorn jelly belly can ruin a whole handful of the good flavors... it's tragic that they put BP in their mixes.
