The other day was an average day. Our family was visiting Target to get some groceries. As a habit, I avoid the candy area because the girls go crazy with sugar and I don’t need the extra calories. It was engrained in me since childhood that I must protect my health and teeth.
But this time I saw something different. I saw an opportunity to make a fun experience. There they were…the Jelly Belly beans…so many flavors and colors just waiting to be discovered. I honestly hadn’t noticed them in the past even though I’d walked by them many times.
We had each family member choose 2 flavors each. We went outside the store and shared them. We took our time to try each one and savor the flavors. It was a lot of fun and made our day memorable. Of course, we don’t do this EVERY time we visit Target, but now when we do, it will be a big treat.
Did you know that there are 50 official Jelly Belly flavors, 10 sour flavors, 20 BeanBoozled flavors, and more? You could try a new one every week and take in a year of taste sensations. Fun flavors like Juicy Pear, Watermelon, A&W Root Beer, Very Cherry and Buttered Popcorn make every bite an adventure. The BeanBoozled flavors are crazy and even come in game form with the BeanBoozled Spinner Game.
For a fun practical joke, mix a BeanBoozled bean in with your friends favorite flavor. For example, the chocolate pudding looks just like the Canned Dog Food flavor and Buttered Popcorn looks just like Rotten Egg.
Jelly Belly offers factory tours in Fairfield, California and a Pleasant Prairie Wisconsin warehouse tour.
