Default New Jelly Belly Flavors



Dear Sirs:

This letter was inspired by the sadistic pleasure I received from watching my friends as they sample some of your recent non-traditional flavors, including but not limited to A&W Root Beer and Buttered Popcorn. I don't think America will enjoy many of their favorite foods quite the same way after experiencing your novel collection. Perhaps your chemical engineers could change forever the way many of your customers recall their time with family and friends around the dinner table with some these suggestions.

Some of my favorite entrees from Americas cookbook include fried okra, steamed asparagus, deviled eggs, meatloaf, turnip greens, lobster bisque, Denver omelet and sauerkraut.

On a patriotic theme, you could honor all those who served Americas armed forces with flavors like K-ration medley, napalm, mustard gas and trench foot.

As a culture we love athletic competition which brings to mind treats like: hot dog with onions and beer, baseball, athletes foot, Atomic Balm and jockey strap.

You could expand your market to non-traditional jelly bean consumers such as outdoorsmen with tantalizing offerings such as: catfish, beef jerky, spam 'n' eggs, Beenie Weenie, Deep Woods OFF and doe scent.

The possibilities are indeed endless.

Yours Truly

A Jelly Belly Customer.

Dunno, I'm a Harry Potter fan, so the idea of Berty-Botts "All Flavor" Beans makes sense to me...

A&W Root Beer, I think, is one of the best. But seriously, Wade, are there really people who would eat asparagus on purpose? Yecch.

I like the asparagus tips dipped in melted butter if I'm feeling "bad". Or... with just Balsamic vinegar drizzled over them if I feel like eating healthy (not too often ).

As for new Jelly Belly flavors, my vote is for:
  1. Anchor Steam: http://www.anchorbrewing.com/
  2. Pepperoni pizza!

I could pop one of each in my mouth at the same time and it would be "just-like" eating beer and pizza!

Yum.

Comfort food !
