    Like a bowl full of Jelly Belly's

    On MLK day, or Civil Rights Day as it's now called, we headed up to the Jelly Belly factory in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. It's about a 15 minute drive from home. Good to know. It's not really the "factory", since the beans are made in a Chicago suburb then shipped to this warehouse, so it's really just the distribution center. Still, it's fun to ride around on the little train and see the video of how they make the famous beans. We also got to wear these cute paper hats. We learned that the best selling jelly bean of this year is Very Cherry, surpassing Buttered Popcorn after it's 3 year reign. We also saw what they do with all the Jelly Belly's that don't make it past QC, they're called Belly Flops, and they sell them in the store at a deeply discounted price. I found the new JBZ, which are kind of like M&M's with a flavored candy shell and filled with chocolate. There was Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate Fudge, and Cappuccino JBZ in my bag of joy. Or so I thought it was a bag of joy. Cute paper hats worn by all.



    Giant Jelly Belly's are creepy.



    Turns out you should never vomit cappuccino flavored JBZ. Not so joyful. Maybe it serves me right for loving anything coffee flavored. Maybe it serves me right for eating the whole bag myself. Either way, bad, bad, Jelly Belly JBZ. Not that it will stop me from eating them again. I'm just a glutton like that.

    Fun day! I bet the girls loved it.

    I feel your pain-they have those at Target and I ate too many once too. Yuck!

    How could one chose Cherry from the thousand of other wonderful flavors? Mind boggling.

    Hey guess what? I already knew all this. Hey guess why? Because my husband made me sit through an episode of "how it's made" or something like that on the discovery channel.

    We used to go to the Jelly Belly Factory in California. My favorite part was the free Jelly Bellies at the end of the tour. Or when we would show up and the Belly Flops would be half off. But I don't really like the JBZ. I would rather eat M&M's.
