Jelly Belly Hello Kitty Favorite Flavors Jellybeans



Let's take a brief break from all of this new Halloween candy arriving on the scene. It's my favorite candy season of the year but sometimes all of those dark colors and gruesome shapes and scary themes (Cadbury Creme Eggs with Green Yolk!? Eek!) become too much. I relate candy, overall, to bright colors and cheerful themes, and what's more warm and fuzzy than Hello Kitty merchandise? Jelly Belly jellybeans are so good at pairing with popular brands to create new jellybean mixes. (Click here for the brilliant Jelly Belly Beatrix Potter/ Peter Rabbit Collection). The color scheme here is perfect for Hello Kitty fans (me, included), with multiple shades of red, both transparent and opaque, speckled pink, light pink, bubble gum pink. It's beautiful. The flavors definitely lean toward the sweet side of the Jelly Belly line: Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy, Red Apple, Sour Cherry, Very Cherry, and Strawberry Cheesecake. In my perfect world, they'd replace the Bubble Gum and Cotton Candy with something a little more tart, but overall it's a good, thoughtful mix that hits the Hello Kitty branding on the mark.

Score: 3
