Tasty Jelly Bean "Recipes"
For many years, I've been passionate about flavors and how they interact with each other. This inspired my latest venture of cracking open a bag of jelly beans with one of my best friends and experimenting with different jelly bean combinations to create an entirely different flavor, something we often did when we were younger. While we initially tasted combinations found on the Jelly Belly website, we soon found ourselves thinking beyond the list and coming up with our own creative delectable creations.
I've compiled lists of the best tried and true flavor combinations we've found, separated into categories: fruity drinks, coffee, and dessert. Try these at home, or invent your own inspired concoctions, and let me know what you think in the comments below!
