Forget everything you ever thought you knew about jelly beans. Jelly Belly jelly beans are in a league of their own – the coolest, most delicious jelly beans imaginable and we’re taking an in depth look at the fantastic Jelly Belly product range that we think would make the perfect Christmas gift or delicious treat for yourself, this festive season.
Using a time honoured method and the unique Jelly Belly know-how; a single jelly bean can take up to 21 days to create. The 90 authentic flavours use natural ingredients wherever possible and can be combined to create an almost infinite number of taste experiences.
Traditional flavours like Green Apple and Very Cherry have endured for 35 years – ever since Jelly Belly was first cooked up – but this year the big favourites are as likely to be Green Tea and Chilli Mango as Piňa Colada and Juicy Pear.
The 50 “official flavours” can be purchased individually but the full range is presented in the luxurious 50 Flavour Gift Box at £23.85. This fabulous gift for discerning foodies – along with the ever popular Jelly Belly bean machine (£24.38). This year, the 40 flavour gift box (£16.18) and 20 flavour gift box (£9.63) are both wrapped in a festive Christmas sleeve.
The “Wow Jelly Belly!” treats are available in a variety of flavour combinations to suit all budgets this year. The first off the shelf supermarket gifts are the popular 100g bags which come in 20 Assorted Flavours and Jelly Belly Sours. Independents are selling the Fruit Bowl, Tropical Mix, Cocktail Classics, Hello Kitty, Sunkist Citrus Mix and Ice Cream Parlour Mix.
Another celebratory gift box of a grown up kind is Jelly Belly Cocktail Classics® the scrumptious and amazingly true-to- life mocktail flavours including Mojito, Pomegranate Cosmo, Peach Bellini, Margarita, Piña Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri flavours. For added cute appeal Jelly Belly offers the HELLO KITTY gift box with a pink flavour combination of Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy, Red Apple, Strawberry Cheesecake & Very Cherry. Those preferring their jelly beans with an edge can enjoy the Jelly Belly Sours – Apple, Lemon, Cherry, Grape, and Orange. The Fab Five gathers up the popular Jelly Belly mixes which includes Sunkist Citrus Mix, Cocktail Classics, Ice Cream Parlour Mix, Smoothie Blend and Beanaturals SuperFruit Mix.
