I've just opened a pack of these amazing sweets as they were sent over from the US by my in-laws.

Seriously if you have never tried them or even heard of them, buy some! I guess they are available over here

(Perfect for nomming in in front of the footy) :smashin:

I always treat the kids to one of the 'spaghetti jar' 1.5kg packs as Christmas presents.

There is a chain of shops (can't recall the name) that sells health food and some luxary sweets and they always have good deals on around celebration holiday times - I usually pay £15 for the 1.5kg jar.

Cheers,

Nigel

Shop chain is called - Julian Graves

This is a reasonable deal they have at the moment

Yes, but I didnt realise that 'gourmet jelly beans' either A) actually existed or B) were that expensive.

A quick search showed that the mis-shaped ones off the production line are called 'belly flops' which I like...

If you look at the bargain basement section of the site they are selling 1KG of the Flops for £10.

The cinnamon ones are fab. I avoid the peanut butter and the pear ones like the plague though.

I do like these, but some of the flavours are just wrong. Trying them reminds me of the old Revels Russian Roulette ads.

Hi Nigel,

The Jelly Bellys are a different brand from the one shown on Julian Graves site.

Shop - Jelly Belly® UK.

I'm sure that they are still tasty though :thumbsup:

Asda do their own brand ones which aren't bad, £1 for 190g, though i can't really tell what any of them are meant to be, and they also do a couple of packs by The Jelly Bean Company which are pretty similar to Jelly Belly in quality.

When i was over in Florida, in Universal Studios park, they had a sweet shop with pick 'n' mix Jelly Belly, so i got a huge bag of just Aniseed/Cinammon and Liquorice ones, mmmmmm

So they are - I always thought they were Jelly Belly but just looked closer and they aren't - they are Jelly Bean.

They are still very good though and given I have had Jelly Belly before they must be very similar to my taste.

Cheers,

Nigel

We always used to have fun combining 2 or 3 different flavoured beans to see what they were like. Peanut butter and banana were always good :smashin:

Tescos sell small packs of em' for around £1.60.
I used to go Selfridges in Manchester and get around £6 worth from their massive assortment. Used to throw a few baked beans one in for the girlfriend who used too try and sneak some when watching a film at the cinema.
