It’s A Candy; It’s A Game

Nov. 16, 2009

Jelly Belly Candy Co., Fairfield, Calif., invites you to bamboozle your kids, family and friends during the holiday season with the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Gift Box, which is a game and a candy all in one.

There’s only one rule to this game: Players must have a sense of humor. Spin the wheel and pick the jelly bean in the color the spinner lands on (included in the box). It’s a dare for intrepid jelly bean eaters to take their chances on tasting look-alike, wild or mild flavors. If you happen to get a “Booger”-flavored bean instead of Juicy Pear, you’ve been BeanBoozled!

Some of the flavors are Jelly Belly favorites: Licorice, Butter Popcorn, Chocolate Pudding, Juicy Pear, Coconut, Top Banana, Berry Blue, Peach, Caramel Corn and Strawberry Jam. Their dreaded alter egos include: Skunk Spray, Rotten Egg, Canned Dog Food, Booger, Baby Wipes, Pencil Shavings, Toothpaste, Vomit, Moldy Cheese and Centipede. Yes, they really do taste shockingly authentic.

Or if game playing is not your thing, visit and choose which delicious flavors and/or which disgusting flavors you’d like to customize in a round, rectangular or bean-shaped tin. It’s a holiday gift the recipient will never forget.

Suggested retail price is $5.99-6.99.
