There are several sets of 2 different Jelly Belly flavors with the same color.

Here’s the fun and scary part: the flavor is either the delicious taste you love or if you are not lucky, a really weird or gross flavor. TIP: It helps if you are of legal drinking age to take a shot or sip of a drink to get up the courage to try some of these flavors 😉 ! I tried a couple of the “yucky” flavors. TIP Toothpaste and Lawn clippings are manageable on the taste buds. I only heard spoiled milk is particularly gross and dead fish. Yikes, wonder how the developers come up with these crazy Jelly Bellys!? The CEO shared a funny story about how one of their best selling flavors, barf, yes, barf, came to be. If I remember the story correctly, they were trying to come up with a cheese mix of pizza and it was gross and then they said hey add some acid flavor and we’ve got barf! The rest is history. TIP: Have napkins and a garbage handy, because more than likely you will have the urge to spit the gross ones out or more. As with choosing a mate, sometimes you have to go deeper than looks. It comes with a little easy dispenser which pops up a jelly belly bean which is perfect on the go. The moral of this story, sometimes you have to taste a few duds to get to your jelly jam jam.
