The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it!

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon!

Today’s question:

Today is National Jelly Bean day. What is your favorite kind of jelly bean, and what is your least favorite?

Talk about it….

Love Jelly Belly beans. The only ones I don’t like are the black licorice ones.

Black ones. If actual jelly bellies, the cotton candy and pina colada ones.

I love them all April 22, 2014 at 12:30 PM

they all taste great. Root Beer is my fav, can’t think of any I dislike.

I don’t care much for the regular pectin jelly beans. I prefer the kind made by Smuckers or Starburst; they are more flavorful.

I love them all except for the strange ones Jelly Belly make to match the flavors in the Harry Potter books – ear wax flavor, for example. Ewwww!

Ickiest: Vomit (it’s aHJelly-Belly flavor)

Favorite is a toss up between
Jelly Belly Black Licorice and
Raspberry. Least favorite is
Buttered Popcorn. But, if the
sugar police are going to ban
sugary drinks, jelly beans can’t
be far behind.

I eat the black ones first. I toss out all the green ones.

Jelly Belly cinnamon. Also tangerine.

Marianne April 22, 2014 at 2:31 PM

I like them all, but my favorite is the pina colada and then the raspberry.

Jelly Belly April 22, 2014 at 2:41 PM

Like the tangerine, cinamon, and cotton candy. If regular jelly beans…I like the black licorice ones.

They tell Me that Jelly Bellies are My favorite candy, but pardon Me I can not recall ever eating one.

Love the popcorn flavored one. Hate lemon/lime.

Pure sugar

I used to wander through the Jelly Belly store across from Fisherman’s Wharf, thinking “who would eat THAT flavor?”, but most of the suspected yucky ones turned out to be OK. The Jalapeno turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I’ve decided that grapes are better for wine than jelly beans.

I thought today was Earth Day! How does anyone keep track?

Kelly Anne April 22, 2014 at 5:08 PM

Love the black ones. Hate the popcorn flavor.

Despite having absolutely no reason to comment on this cooler thread, I have.
