The World’s Craziest Jelly Beans Slideshow
March 27, 2013
6) Cocoa Bon
Cocoa Bon is best known for its high-quality chocolate, but they also produce jelly beans in flavors inspired by cocktails, available in cosmopolitan, mojito, bellini, and lemon drop flavors. While there’s obviously no alcohol involved, the flavors alone will tide you over until happy hour.
5) Retro Sweets
Most of the jelly beans offered through this British retailer of hard-to-find candies are rather ordinary, but a few buck the trend. Granny Smith apple pie, butterscotch, café latte, mint sorbet, cranberry-apple, and cola are a few of the more outside-the-box creations for sale.
4) Brach's Chili Fiesta
This company makes versions of some of the world’s most popular candies, including hard candies, chocolates, gummies, and caramels. Their jelly beans are also big sellers, and they recently upped the ante with a line of "Chili Fiesta" jelly beans, "a blend of hot spice and sweet fruit" in five flavors: watermelon, tamarind, mango, pineapple, and apple. They’ve each got a hint of spice, and are a pretty funky offering from such a traditional candy company.
2) Jelly Belly Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans
The name that’s synonymous with jelly beans isn't afraid to delve into some really weird territory. In conjunction with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, they re-released their own take on Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. These flavors are truly gross-sounding, and are pretty gross-tasting as well. Black pepper, booger, dirt, earthworm, grass, rotten egg, sausage, soap, and vomit-flavored jelly beans don’t sound so great to us.
