I've always had a bit of a sweet tooth. Though I tend to lean towards chocolate and cake, I sometimes get a taste for something fruity, chewy, and easy to nibble on in dainty little bites. I stumbled across this sampler pack of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans (20 fruit flavors) at my local Whaler's General Store.Sometimes, I'll put out little bowls of candy for the guests to enjoy as they relax around my quaint bed and breakfast on the Big Island of Hawaii, but I'll admit this was a completely selfish purchase. I had a craving for a fruity candy that's packed with flavor but not with calories.
This sampler pack comes in 20 fruit flavors, ranging from blueberry to cotton candy, green apple to licorice, orange sherbet to strawberry cheesecake, as well as tangerine to watermelon, with plenty other delicious flavors in between. The 20-flavor pack also comes in a variety of “tropical” flavors, but I went in the direction of a more traditional route. It was a tough decision, to be quite honest.
One of my favorite things about Jelly Belly Jelly Beans is that each flavor stands so well on its own, but can easily be combined with others for a true taste adventure.
