  • What makes Jelly Belly beans different from other jelly beans?

    Jelly Belly jelly beans differ from ordinary jelly beans because of their authentic and intense flavours, the number of flavours, the smaller size, the brilliant colors and, of course, the Jelly Belly name on every bean. Developed for the sophisticated palate, most Jelly Belly flavours use fine natural ingredients, whenever possible, to flavour the beans, i.e., chocolate, coconut, fruit juice concentrates and fruit purees like strawberry, pear and banana. These 'true-to-life' flavours are mixed into the center and the shell.

  • Are Jelly Belly Jelly Beans Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans?

  • What is a Belly Flop?

    We make millions of pounds of Jelly Belly jelly beans each year. In the course of production, we produce a small percentage of what we call Belly Flops. These consist of misshapen beans, clusters of beans and off-color beans, all of which are perfectly edible. The flavor mixes in the Belly Flops vary according to the production schedule. Although we do our best to pack a variety of flavors in each bag, everyone is different and we cannot guarantee the selection of flavors. Part of the fun is anticipating which flavors you'll get.
