Jelly Belly Holiday Favorites Jelly Bean Mix

Jelly Belly Holiday Favorites feels like a celebration of both Thanksgiving and Christmas, based on the flavors. Pumpkin Pie, Egg Nog, Cranberry Sauce, Hot Chocolate, and Candy Cane round out the festive mix. It's not the prettiest assortment of colors--two browns, orange, pistachio green, and pink--not aesthetically alluring. The flavors are uneven, too. Pumpkin is gross, but that's subjective. I reject all pumpkin flavorings this holiday season. Hot Cocoa is ok but I never think that chocolate-based jelly bean flavors taste quite right--like a blanderized tootsie roll. The Egg Nog is a fun surprise, as is the tart juicy Cranberry Sauce. Candy Cane, of course, is always a classic. It's a fun mix to sort through and sample but not one of the prettier or more synthesized holiday jelly bean mixes from Jelly Belly. 

Score: 3
