I haven't had jelly beans in years. But I bought some yesterday. I have to admit---they don't taste as good as I remember. I still like the black jelly beans--and the purple. Do you like jelly beans? Do you think the different colors have distinct flavors (other than sugar, sugar, sugar!)? Let's talk jelly beans!

Starburst jelly beans taste the best.

Jelly Belly for sheer variety.

Depends on the brand. some of the generic brands are all one flavor. Brachs, if I remember correctly, has different flavors (I HATE the black and green ones. White and purple are my favorites)

Jelly Bellys definitely have very distinct flavors.

I always DESPISED them until a few years ago when I discovered Starburst and Sweet Tart Jelly Beans. The other ones are just gross. And I recently saw chocolate covered jelly beans - why ruin good chocolate like that?

I am not a fan of sweet foods but I enjoy a handful of jelly beans here and there.

I used to like them somewhat when I was a kid, but haven't wanted to eat them for years. Even as a child, I remember finding them to be too sweet. Didn't stop me from eating other candies. so my answer is "meh".

When I did eat them, I loved orange, green, and red, but hated the black ones.

They are okay--not really my favorite kind of candy. Once a year around Easter, when they seem to be everywhere, I'll have some.

I used to love them, but now I'm indifferent to them.

Hated them until Jelly Belly's came along. Now I just hate the price of them and do without.
