Jelly Belly, the very popular American sweetEP Scholten
Over the years, many an American sweet has been marketed that speaks to the imagination of those that are a fan of the nation. This applies in particular to the sweets from the brand Jelly Belly. There is a good chance you’ve had the pleasure of enjoying these special sweets before. Did you know there is a connection between the Jelly Belly sweets and the remarkable ‘Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans’ from the Harry Potter films? If you really like your sweets and also like to discover unique flavours, we can recommend getting acquainted with Jelly Belly sweets!
The difference between Jelly Belly and Jelly Beans
It is not uncommon for Jelly Belly’s and Jelly Beans to be used interchangeably. But remember: Jelly Belly is the only, true American brand! Jelly Bean is merely a copy, or a word used to describe the shape of the sweet. The reason for confusion is easy to understand. Despite Jelly Belly being the only true brand, the sweets are shaped like kidney beans.
A wide variety of Jelly Belly flavours
Jelly Belly sweets have been around for a long time already. So it only makes sense that a wide variety of Jelly Belly flavours has been introduced over the years.
Moreover, the selection of Jelly Belly flavours is highly diverse, and often surprising too. Aside from the regular flavours, there are some you might have never imagined possible. For instance, flavours such as Jalapeño, Popcorn, Marshmallow and Piña Colada. When you choose to purchase these typically American sweets, you will not just surprise children, but all your other guests too!
Jelly Belly Special Editions
Over the years, there have been a number of Jelly Belly Special Editions. The most remarkable of all are, without a doubt, the ‘Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans’. These sweets are based on those from the Harry Potter films. You may take the ‘every flavour’ quite literal. The selection features some delicious varieties, but there are also some flavours that are a little bit less enjoyable, just like with the ‘Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans’ from the films. The sweets became very popular in the US overnight, especially with the younger children.
This was probably the basis for the famous game of Jelly Belly Bean Boozled. This is a game where you have to eat a Jelly Belly in the colour indicated by a spinner. But beware! The catch is that each colour has both a pleasant, and a ‘less-favourable’ flavour possibility, just like with the ‘Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans’ from Harry Potter. Are you up to the challenge?
Sugar-free Jelly Belly sweets
There is good news for those that enjoy sweets, but wish to keep an eye on their sugar intake. Jelly Belly also offers sweets that make use of different sweeteners. What’s more, these sweets come in a wide variety of flavours too. Enjoy for instance Popcorn, Cherry, Green Apple, Juice Pear and Sizzling Cinnamon. So even when you can’t or don’t want to eat sugar, Jelly Belly sweets are always recommended!
