My daughter Sarah and I bought some Jelly Belly brand “Bean Boozled” jelly beans today. If you don’t know what these are, they are a mix of regular jelly belly flavors and some not-so-desired flavors.
So when you pour them in a bowl to share, it’s like playing Russian Roulette on which flavor you get. And some are easier to tolerate than others. For example, the toothpaste and baby wipe flavors aren’t so bad. The baby wipes do have a chemical type aftertaste though that would probably be like the real thing as well. Laura tried the centipede flavor but had to spit it out. Sarah said it tasted like a handful of clovers or some other type of plant.
In all, Sarah ate 5 of the 10 bad flavors. She was a brave girl. I’ve had the before and did not feel the need to “play” again. Especially since I almost barfed after eating the barf flavor last time (used to be called vomit). In my mind, the best one Sarah tried was the canned dog food. As soon as she started chewing, Laura and I could smell it. It was just like she opened a fresh can. Yuck. The funniest thing was that our dog Louie almost jumped up into her lap to get his share of the dog food. He was almost drooling over that one. That’s how real it smelled.
The ladies on staff at my church will love that I bought an extra box for them to try. I know they’ll try each one and love it….yeah, right. NOT!
Here’s a chart of the flavors. Buy some and have a hilarious time with friends playing “Bean Boozled Russian Roulette.”
