When I think about treats from when I was a kid, one thing that I remember is when my grandmother used to buy my brother and I honey treats from the health food store. My brother was on a gluten free diet so there wasn’t a whole lot of treats we were able to have. I can remember the smell and the taste like it was yesterday. I never really thought about a company bringing in the honey flavor in to a jelly bean, but leave that up to Jelly Belly to amaze me!
This month, we were able to try a new flavor from Jelly Belly ‘Honey Bean’. If there was ever a taste to bring back childhood memories, it is this flavor!
Real wildflower honey infuses the new Honey Bean flavor of Jelly Belly® bean being introduced at the Winter Fancy Food Show by Jelly Belly Candy Company.
Honey Bean becomes the company’s 92nd flavor currently on the market in the pantheon of Jelly Belly beans. A comforting and soothing flavor, Honey Bean Jelly Belly bean is golden yellow and drenched in the taste of honey from the chewy center to the tender shell of the jelly bean.
The flavor idea was the result of consumer requests. Honey flavor has been requested often by fans and in a poll over 11,000 Jelly Belly fans also voted honey as the most preferred new flavor.
Raise your hand if you are the type to sit there with a box (or bag) of Jelly Belly’s and try new flavor combination. We are those people! It is fun to try new combinations and with the new Honey Bean flavor becoming available, there are even more flavors to try out.
Savor it for the straight-from-the-hive flavor along with a cup of tea. This sweet bean also pairs well with other flavors to create Jelly Belly Recipes:
- 1 Honey Bean + 2 French Vanilla = Honey Yogurt
- 1 Honey Bean + 1 Red Apple = Honey Dipped Apple
Jelly Belly beans are gluten-free, dairy-free, gelatin-free and certified OU Kosher.
The new Jelly Belly Honey Bean will be released to stores nationwide in February and available online at www.JellyBelly.com
