So I have this things with Jelly Beans. I LOVE them. I think it was because my mom always used to put them in our Easter baskets as kids. (I'm not however, a fan of those yellow marshmallow chick things).
The issue is that I have not been able to find regular, old fashioned Jelly Beans anywhere. I've seen the Jelly Bellys, Gourmet Jelly Beans and those Harry Potter Jellies that taste like odd things. What happened to just plain old Jelly Beans?
And here's the other thing, those Gourmet Jellys are seriously small! I need the entire bag to equal one regular sized Jelly Bean and I don't want to eat a Root Beer Jelly Bean.
I think that's the marketing ploy. If they're small and have an "exotic" taste then they must be really expensive. Hence..."gourmet."
For me...I'll take Yellow, Orange, Red etc.! Orange was my favorite (and remember those Orange Slices!) I used to separate out the white and black beans when I was a kid. I wasn't a licorice fan as a kid...now I'll take them ALL! Mmmmm!
OK now that I'm off my soap box, let's talk about Health Care. Might be novel for everyone to have coverage huh? I say put a Jelly Bean clause in the reform package!
