Jelly Belly Fun

Just up the road about 15 minutes is a Jelly Belly Factory. For those of you that think Jelly Bellys are just another jelly bean...not so my uneducated sweets. This is the original gourmet jelly bean made famous by then President Ronald Reagan. Did you know they were staples in the White House at that time?
Did you also know that it takes up to 21 days to make a Jelly Belly bean? And there are 50 official flavors. They even have recipes so you can make your own specialties. How about a root beer float or lemon meringue pie?
And guess what they call the ones that don't shape up to perfection?
Belly Flops
