The Jelly Belly 500g box is, well, huge! There are a massive, 40 assorted flavours in the box ingeniously split into their own little compartments. On the reverse of the lid you will find a very clear diagram showing where all the flavours are.
When my daughter opened the box her eyes were as large as saucers as she looked at all the coloured sweeties – it was like sweetie heaven!
We are yet to try all the different combinations including fruity flavours such as orange sherbet, kiwi and strawberry jam, to more intriguing flavours such as toasted marshmallow, margarita and sizzling cinnamon. It’s amazing how they can capture the essence and flavours so accurately!
My daughter’s favourite combination from the recipe booklet supplied is Strawberry Shortcake: 2 x strawberry jam and 2 x vanilla = delicious! We had lots of fun working our way through the recipes and felt like two kids at Willy Wonkas sweet shop! There are 7 recipes on the booklet supplied but you can find more on the Jelly Belly website to try.
As this is a Valentine’s item, the box was aptly presented wrapped in a red card sleeve with hearts on it. I would love to receive this as a valentines present – although I fear I may have to share mine with my daughter!
Purchase Jelly Belly boxes from all great retailers or from their website www.jellybelly-uk.com.
