My stomach must be bigger than my eyes for the Big Tex Jumbo Jelly BeanFriday, March 11th, 2011 by Becca Droz
Denture Danger: 10
Imagine a world where Jelly Beans were so big that you could not only not eat a handful at a time, but you could to take multiple satisfying bites of one jellybean. Well, as they say, if there is a will, there is a way, and the jellybeans must have eaten a bite of Alice’s cake because they have grown exponentially in size.
Limey green, grapey purple, sweet vanilla white (not to be confused with Vanna White), cherry red, licorice black, lemony yellow and a pink that I believe is an attempt at strawberry; these fun flavors fill these supersized jelly beans.
Don’t think that the growth of the bean has reduced the potency of the taste because each bean is bursting with flavor. The thick, soft shell protects the chewy jelly gum inside, which holds the life of the party.
I think this is a good candy for the bite-and-pass technique because that way you can get a taste of every flavor without overdoing the candy eating and wearing out a flavor. (As long as no one is sick, the bite and pass is my favorite way to share because you get just enough to want a little more, which is the perfect amount).
