They are gross. These bitter, licorice flavored black chewy pellets might be the sorriest excuse for candy I have ever encountered. If you buy/receive a bag of assorted Jelly Beans, or even have the pleasure of perusing a community candy bowl, you’ll notice that inevitably (after the Very Cherry and Tutti Fruitti are long gone) the vile black licorice beans remain. Why? NOBODY WANTS THEM.
Not to mention the fact that they look as revolting as they taste…I think I am correct when I say that they bear an uncanny resemblance to animal droppings.
And if you do decide to take the plunge and eat one of these bad boys, you are likely to have tinted teeth and black chunks stuck in your gums all day. Yes, best leave these little beans in the trash. Or a word to the not-so-wise over there at Jelly Belly Corporation: stop making them, they’re lousy.
Note: While trying to think of someone that I knew that actually eats these little poison pills, I remembered that my grandfather does. But then, I also realized that he one time in a bet ate an entire jar of mayonnaise. So that doesn’t count.
