I have a serious sweet tooth. Once upon a time, I waited all year in anticipation of Easter candy. Now I wait for good jelly beans. Not the cheap, icky things they use to stuff plastic eggs at community egg hunts. I like Jelly Belly jelly beans. I like Starburst jelly beans. I like Sunkist jelly beans. I like Jolly Rancher jelly beans.
But Jelly Belly jelly beans can be dangerous. You're going along, enjoying the fruit-tastic flavors of pear, raspberry, strawberry, pineapple, and green apple, when suddenly, you're assaulted by Buttered Popcorn. Chocolate. Cream Soda. Jalapeno. Toasted Marshmallow.
I'm a fruity jelly bean kind of girl. I love fruity Jelly Bellies (is that the correct plural form of Jelly Belly?). Give me lemon, cherry, grape, even coconut (I know, it's not technically a fruit), but leave the rest out. Chocolate jelly beans really freak me out. Chocolate should have a smooth, creamy texture. Not a jellied candy coated texture.
But apparently, it's just me. I think Buttered Popcorn has 4 1/2 out of 5 stars as rewarded by customers. Princess loves them. But she's weird. She also likes salt & vinegar potato chips (ya' know, those don't sound so bad anymore...) and dill pickles. Gross.
But I'd give up all jelly beans for a lifetime supply of Blackberries & Raspberries....the candy kind.
