I pulled into this truck stop in Southern Washington a little while ago. I went inside to get my evening supplies which usually consists of a bottle of Gatorade and some sort of snack I can enjoy while watching a movie and knitting.
I saw that they had Jelly Belly jelly beans and snagged a bag of them. I used to eat them all the time but hadn't had any in a long while. I love the flavors they use.
Anybody else enjoy these delicious little morsels of sin?
What do you mean guys don't knit?
Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.
Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
I don't get them very often.. used to get them all the time when we would go to movies... of course then I couldn't see the colors and would always end up with a yucky popcorn I like mixing them together too come up with new flavors...
Yes! My favorite flavors are Dr. Pepper, Buttered Popcorn, Toasted Marshmallow and Watermelon. When we were living in Fresno, I wanted to take a trip up to the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, but we never got around to it. :(

Jelly Belly Facts
Jelly beans appeared in the United States during the Civil War, but the Herman Goelitz Company, a fifth-generation confectioner now called the Jelly Belly Candy Company, started making the official "Jelly Belly" candies in 1976. A California entrepreneur asked for a jelly bean with "natural" ingredients, and the Jelly Belly was born, candies distinct from all other jelly beans because of their natural-flavored centers.
People consume 14 billion Jelly Belly candies every year.
There are fifty "official" flavors at any time. New flavors debut as "Rookies."
The most popular flavors in the United States are buttered popcorn, very cherry, licorice, juicy pear and watermelon.
Ronald Reagan ordered 3.5 tons of Jelly Belly candies for his presidential inauguration, and the company invented the now-popular blueberry flavor so he could serve candies in red, white and blue.
The Jelly Belly factory also makes over a hundred other confections including candy corn, and they made the first gummi candies in the United States.
