NEWS: Jelly Belly and Tabasco Team Up To Make Sweet and Spicy Jelly Beans


Jelly Belly, the company that makes jelly beans in flavors that your heart does and doesn’t desire, has teamed up with Tabasco to produce sweet and spicy jelly beans.

The new jelly bean flavor uses genuine Tabasco seasoning, giving them the flavor and kick Tabasco lovers will enjoy. It will also give those who get off on eating Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans a new weird flavor to try.

Jelly Belly’s Tabasco Jelly Belly beans are currently available in bulk, in case you wanted to burn your mouth for hours by chain eating them. A webpage to order 3.1-ounce bags is up on the company’s online store, but according to the Drugstore News story, Jelly Belly won’t release the Tabasco flavor in the smaller bags until December.

Fried pickles, fried cheddar cheese curds, fried bubblegum, fried mashed potatoes, and a fried Pop-Tart. I think I need to chug some Pepto-Bismol because typing the previous sentence has given me an upset stomach. (via Tampa Bay Food Monster)

Speaking of Pepto-Bismol, this looks like Pepto-Bismol and probably does the opposite of what Pepto-Bismol does. (via Junk Food Guy)

I’m sorry. This beverage just makes me think of boobs. (via Thirsty Dudes)

I’m disappointed Wendy’s doesn’t name their Premium North Pacific Cod Fillet sandwich, Cut-O-Cod. It would make it sound more like Filet-O-Fish and it’s a lot easier to type than Wendy’s Premium North Pacific Cod Fillet Sandwich. (via Fast Food Geek)

KHAAAAAN!!!!! CARAAAAAMELS!!!!! (via Japanese Snack Reviews)

You know what sounds worse than eating a military MRE (Meal Ready to Eat)? Eating a military MRE cold. (via Clearance Cuisine)

NEWS: Jelly Belly Tries To Get Edgy By Going Veggie, Reggie

Frozen Peas Corn Carrots IMG_1000

Jelly Belly, maker of the slightly disgusting buttered popcorn jelly bean and many other less disgusting flavors, will be launching a Peas & Carrots Mix candy in February.

Despite how off-putting vegetable candy may sound, it will not be vegetable flavored, instead the carrots will taste like orange sherbet and the peas will taste like apples. Not only that, the candy won’t be jelly beans, instead they’ll be mellocremes.

Jelly Belly’s Peas & Carrots Mix will be dairy-free, gluten-free and certified OU Kosher. They will come in a variety of sizes and, if you can’t find them in stores, you’ll be able to purchase them on the Jelly Belly website.
