Beer Jelly Beans
A very kind colleague gave me a small bag of beer-flavoured jelly beans, so obviously I had to write them up. This niche candy is produced by the flavour-mad folks at Jelly Belly. The beans are golden, shiny, and have a slightly carbonated look that is actually pretty impressive.
So how did they taste? Fine, I guess. Not particularly beery, though there is a slight burst of maltiness. Mostly they taste sweet--like some kind of misguided wheat-flavoured candy. A strange treat that I'm glad to have tried, but won't be eager to ever revisit. It should be said that while I found them inoffensive, my partner took a tiny nibble of a single bean and immediately spit it out with extreme vigour.
