Oh my...haven't had jelly beans in years but now I want some. Meijers has a Jelly Belly "bar" and as I recall the peanut butter ones are awesome.

Jelly beans trace their origin back to Turkish Delight - now that's some good stuff. I prefer the rose and lemon flavored Turkish Delight.

Jelly beans are pretty good too.

I like jellybeans but they are hard to find where I live.

Hated them until jelly belly came around as well. Though still my least favorite if I have them my favorite jelly belly flavor is the buttered popcorn one.

Went to the Sugar Shack in Mrytle Beach over the weekend and they had dozens of flavors of Jelly Belly. We got about a pounds worth. Amazing how they make the flavors taste exactly as described.

Make sure you mix some of them to create flavors! It's the best thing about Jelly Belly!

Ooohh--yes, the Jelly Belly and Starburst jelly beans are delicious! I need to upgrade to a tastier brand. The Palmer brand I bought are the cheapest variety out there, I think! I notice that Palmer makes a ton of Easter candy.

Love them. Love the Jelly Belly ones for variety of flavour and love the old fashioned ones (especially black and white ones)

For their taste, I can take or leave jelly beans. I like jelly beans because they are so colorful. I like them best filled about 3/4 full in a Ball Mason Jar and sitting on a table or a knick-knack shelf as a decoration. If I want a colorful candy to eat, that would be M&M's peanut. Although they do look pretty good in a Ball Mason Jar as well.

I have never been a fan of jelly beans. Tried them as a kid and never cared for them.
