Hello! It’s Bee again. I know what you’re thinking, thank God, a break from all the wedding talk, time to talk about something real, something relevant.
You may remember my last post about pizza and you may remember ordering a Domino’s right after reading it. Anyway, continuing along the theme of delicious but probably not that healthy foods, I’m going to be talking to you about Jelly Beans!
So if any of you read my actual food blog, you will probably know that I have taken a little break recently due to starting a new job and moving house and all that, basically becoming a fully grown adult over night (terrifying). Well on the last day of living in halls at uni I checked my postbox just in case someone had sent me something, although I wasn’t expecting anything.
The reception desk lady proceeded to bring out the most humongous parcel. I was excited but also slightly annoyed that that was one more box I had to pack into my friend’s mum’s car and then carry up two flights of stairs to the new flat. I got it up to my almost empty room and when I opened it I felt about five years old. It was mounds and mounds of jelly beans from The Jelly Bean Factory, in boxes, tubs, packets, tubes and glass jars. I worked out that there must have been about 4kg of jelly beans in that box. It was glorious.
I took it to the new flat to show my friends. I think they were happy that they had chosen to live with me. They went bloody nuts over those little beans. I felt like a hero.
The flavours that I was sent were Berry Burst, Tropical Bonanza, Fruit Cocktail and one that was a mixture of 36 gourmet flavours. The jelly beans were actually the nicest ones I have ever tasted, a really good texture and the flavours were so strong that you could basically tell what flavour it was supposed to be as soon as you put it in your mouth. I looked up the prices online and they are actually really good value for money too, I would definitely buy a big jar of them as a birthday present for someone who I knew really liked sweets. The smaller packets are great for if you want a different sort of treat on movie night or as a little gift to say thank you to someone.
They sound great right? Well if you head on over to Tea Chez Bee I’m doing a little giveaway where you can win your own jelly bean selection! I will see you over there! Yay!
(Plus have a read while you’re there, she’s very good.)
Bee was sent the jelly beans for the purposes of this review because I am an awesome mummy.
