Jelly bean season is among us. Every year right before Easter, stores seem to stock up on different types of Jelly Beans. I don’t know if jelly beans are the official food of Easter but it sure seems that way. While Jelly Belly’s are absolutely delicious, it’s time to broaden your jelly bean horizons. Here are 10 alternatives that are great. Whatever you do, don’t buy those nasty store brand name jelly beans.
10. Smuckers Jelly Beans
Add some bean to the Jelly. The same Smucker’s that makes jelly also makes jelly beans.
9. Sweet Tarts Jelly Beans
For the crowd that loves the tangy things in life.
8. Lemonhead Jelly Beans
The Lemonhead jelly beans have that same waxy texture as their normal candy.
7. Mike and Ike Jelly Beans
Let’s be honest here, Mike and Ike’s essentially are jelly beans that are a different shape.
6. Nerds Jelly Beans
Get the bumpy Nerds texture in the form of a jelly bean.
5. Hawaiian Punch Jelly Beans
The red jelly beans taste exactly like Hawaiian punch. If you want to really go nuts throw some Hawaiian Punch jelly beans into your Hawaiian Punch.
4. Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans
These are WAY better than normal Jolly Rancher’s. They should stick to jelly beans all the time.
3. Sour Patch Jelly Beans
I know you’re salivating just thinking about these.
2. Belly Flops
These are made by Jelly Belly but they’re way cooler. They’re the reject jelly belly’s. Some have funny shapes. Some have too much flavor. You can’t go wrong with these.
1. Starburst Jelly Beans
Hands down the best jelly bean’s I’ve ever tried. Every flavor is delicious. Skip the small bag and buy a giant one!
