I don’t know what the weather’s like where you are but right now here in Ireland, it’s wet and grey and pretty miserable. It’s not fair; this is supposed to be our summer! Sadly there’s not much we can do about it and we can only try to make the best of things. So today – rather than let the rain get to me – I decided to brighten up the afternoon with some colourful and seriously addictive sweets.
I’ve recently been sampling (all in the name of research, of course) several different brands of jelly beans and my favourite by far is The Jelly Bean Factory.
These jelly beans are the tastiest little things around. There’s a whopping 36 flavours to choose from, and each one has a full distinctive taste. The flavours vary from fruity and refreshing to sweet and sugary and even hot and spicy. There are the classic flavours such as Strawberry and Cola; the more exotic flavours like Caribbean Coconut and Café Latte and fun unexpected flavours such as Caramel Popcorn and Banana Split. Plus not only do these particular jelly beans contain no artificial colours and flavours but they’re also gluten free, GMO free, nut free, fat free and gelatine free. I only discovered them a month ago and I’m completely obsessed now.

I’d love to know – what’s your favourite flavour jelly bean?
