Ronald Regan never had to worry about this stuff. Sure, the Berlin Wall came down during his time in office – plus he was associated with taking short naps during Staff Meetings and eating a lot of Jelly Beans – but the stakes are now much higher now. Those folks on the east side of The Wall may be easily confused with Russians further to the east. But now those pesky Russians have upped the ante. Jelly Belly Beans have morphed into something akin to a game of Russian Roulette. I did warn you, didn’t I….

Caring for and sharing your stash of Jelly Beans is nothing new. But BeanBoozled Jelly Beans take it to a whole new level. The new BeanBoozled Beans are packaged in a new, nifty box with colorful graphics on the outside. However, when was the last time you enjoyed a candy that requires a “legend” or “key”. Some people would call this additional information a “fair warning”. Beware kids! Stranger danger!
Now you can “pay your money and take your chances…” Ten different colors of jelly beans BUT 20 different flavors. Sound like a good deal? Then you better keep on reading…
The boys in the Taste Department at Jelly Belly have mixed up a few treats AND a few surprises. Sure – you could just flip a coin and plunge ahead. But a little strategy or Game Theory may be in order. Basic math tells me that you have a 50 percent chance of getting a treat and a 50 percent chance of getting a “stinker”. But who wants to look for that old textbook to read about probability and statistics. Nope. Not me! Too easy!
And some of these flavors are downright weird! When was the last time you looked forward to chewing on an “ear wax” flavored jelly bean. O.K. – possibly back in Third Grade – but since you probably made it through Graduate School – you should know better. My strategy? Let the OTHER person reach in and take a chance. If you are lucky – THEY pick up the Skunk Spray flavor, gag or possibly Up-Chuck – then you both get a laugh as you walk out of the room to have lunch…A great way to end that boring 3:00 pm Staff Meeting.
Get my drift? Don’t be a hero. Share the wealth! Kinda’ like opening a door for a Senior Citizen – only to have them get hit by a bus! Whoa…I’m kidding! Jelly beans, Retro candy and chocolate candy is available from the Bella Mia Candy Store.
Why not put a few of these Jelly Belly beans in a dessert bowl during Super Bowl Sunday? BeanBoozled Jelly Beans might just have those Big Guys running for the exits. Revenge is best served in a bowl! Enjoy!
