Jelly Belly – Jelly Bean Challenge and #Giveaway:
I love Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. There’s something childishly appealing about the little bean shaped sweets with intense flavours. A bit like Willy Wonka, there’s a creativity there.
How about this lovely recipe for Hot Fudge Sundae? Doesn’t it just make you think of American Icecream Parlours!!!
There are more on the Jelly Belly site – and I’ve been trying to come up with my own. The best I’ve come up with is:-
Green Apple + Blackberry + Vanilla = Blackberry and Apple Crumble.
I’m sure you can all do better. Jelly Belly have offered me a 50 flavour gift box for one London Unattached reader – just like the one in the picture below. It retails for around £30, so there should be enough Jelly Beans there to keep you going for a while!
If you can’t think of a recipe – then which is your favourite flavour? I’ll be picking the winner at random – or rather Rafflecopter will!
- There are fifty standard flavours of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans – and more being created every day!
- Each bean has four calories
- Jelly Belly Jelly Beans were created in 1960 by 19-year-old Herman Goelitz Rowland, Sr., fourth generation candy maker from the Goelitz family in the USA.
- They were a favourite of Ronald Reagan in USA. In 1967 some of those beans managed to catch the attention of the Governor of California, Ronald Reagan. Throughout his two terms in office, the Governor ate Herm’s jelly beans and ultimately wrote that famous letter saying “we can hardly start a meeting or make a decision without passing around the jar of jelly beans.” You can see a replica of the letter at the Jelly Belly Visitor Centre.
You’ll find a lot more about Jelly Belly Jelly Beans on their website, so why not pop over!
