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.

I’d try it, can’t be THAT terrible.
I try it too, but then again I run a product review blog that encourages me to eat things I shouldn’t. 🙂
This is just their version of an old-fashioned candy (called peas and carrots), my grandma kept a jar of them in her kitchen. I think Koppers is the main maker now adays.
I remember that too. Even as a kid it struck me as a weird idea for candy. Tasty though!
I really expected Jelly Belly to make jelly bean versions of it. They disappoint me so.
I predict this causes unrealistic expectations for children at dinner time.
Haha, I’m actually a big fan of the buttered popcorn jelly bean.
Me too, it’s always been my favorite flavor.
