Reserve your calendar for Friday, July 29: That’s the day that TOP Food & Drug in Edmonds is hosting the Jelly Belly tour bus, giving the public a chance to sample favorites and participate in an unusual taste test.
Jelly Belly representatives will answer questions from noon to 4 p.m. while offering fun and prizes for children. Those who are a bit daring can try the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled collection to compare some of the company’s tastiest, most popular flavors with its craziest ones. But here’s the catch – you can’t tell visually which ones are which.
The Chocolate Pudding bean looks exactly like the Canned Dog Food bean. You may think you’re tasting the world-famous Buttered Popcorn bean, but you may have the Rotten Egg bean. The only way to find out what beans you’re getting is to eat them! Prizes await for those willing to try.
The Jelly Belly BeanBoozled collection currently contains 10 colors of beans and 20 flavors (10 “real” ones and 10 “different” ones). The pairings are:
Chocolate Pudding – Canned Dog Food
Licorice – Skunk Spray
Buttered Popcorn – Rotten Egg
Strawberry Jam – Centipede
Juicy Pear – Booger
Coconut – Baby Wipes
Peach – Barf
Caramel Corn – Moldy Cheese
Top Banana – Pencil Shavings
Berry Blue – Toothpaste
Jelly Belly jelly beans are currently made in 92 flavors, including the latest introduction, Honey Bean.
The Edmonds TOP Foods is at 21900 Highway 99 at the intersection of 220th Street Southwest.
